About

Handmade Goodness

My name is Therese Lyons. I am a Sydney based maker obsessed with colour, texture, fibre and creating beautiful pieces that make me and others happy.

I previously owned the business, Ena & Albert, which closed in 2017. Since then, I've been rediscovering what I love about making, trying new techniques and creating lots of beautiful things just for the sake of it. It's been bit of a treat after 6 years of business focused making (which I am so grateful for & proud of).

I've always been inspired by textiles - I even have a Bachelor's degree in Creative Arts with a focus on Textiles. I learnt about screen printing, digital printing, natural dying, knitting, basket weaving, shibori and so many amazing things from some amazing artists. I often wish I could go back and learn it all again.

I started weaving around 2011. I mostly taught myself with a few amazing workshops from weaving goddess Maryanne Moodie to sharpen my skills. I started with a little plastic loom from a craft shop in Singapore and then moved on a frame loom and a rigid heddle loom. I was then so lucky to be gifted a Saori WX60 in late 2017 as 10 year work anniversary gift.

The idea of making cloth with my hands is absolutely magical to me. I can choose the fibres, the colours, how much texture, the size, shape....and then I can turn it into anything I want. Being about to dye my own yarn colours adds another layer of fun to the process.

The pieces I am making for this store are made slowly, with lots of love and happiness in very small quantities - mostly one of a kinds.

You can find me on Instagram as @enaandalbert where I share all the colourful things I'm making, as well as behind the scenes videos in my stories.

Orders Within Australia:
--------------------------------
Standard delivery: Australia Post Parcel Post (trackable service, approx 2-7 working days)

Express delivery: Australia Post Express Post (trackable service, approx 1-3 working days). Ordering Express delivery will not speed up the processing time of your order. Please get in touch if you are in a hurry for your order and I will see what I can do.

All International Orders are shipped using a trackable service from Australia Post. Typically it takes between 3-10 working days to get to you, but can take up to 30 days in some instances.

Unfortunately there are limited affordable services for sending parcels from Australia to International customers. As a small maker, I am unable to absorb the costs of dispatch internationally.
