What does The Creative Space Studio, Macclesfield do?

Debra Tracey, The Creative Space Studio’s passionate founder, explains what they do..


I am holding free mosaic workshops for the general public to work on the Macclesfield Football Club mosaic, at the studio on Mondays but people must book in (01625 560 478 or 07774 920 292) due to limited places.

I go out to schools and work with children to produce large-scale mosaic murals plus I deliver one day creative activities such as mask making, silk painting, eco art and much more.

I also hold classes and workshops at the studio and have a Figure Studies for beginners course starting in August.

Here are some images of the East Cheshire Hospice Mosaic which I am donating which was worked on at the studio, The new Sunflower Centre at the Hospice and also at The Poacher’s Inn, Bollington. Children from St. John’s and Pott Shrigley school will be visiting the studio tomorrow to finish it.

I am also donating a 2′ x 4′ community mosaic to the Barnaby Festival and I will be there on the Sunday in the Craft Cafe where children can come and help me make it. They need to bring some broken crockery (it must be safe) and I will either use it on the mosaic if it is safe or swap it for some tiles of my own. Free to participate.

The Weave – Offices Macclesfield Tenant Case Study

Tim, Lucy and family - Macclesfield office space to rent tenants

The Weave – Tim, Lucy and family. Located in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

This month’s featured Offices Macclesfield Tenant is The Weave.
The Weave is located at the back of the Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield, alongside the Macclesfield Canal.

The Weave is a family business run by Tim and Lucy (pictured right). Their company imports & retails quality Oriental Carpets, Persian Rugs and Tribal Interiors.

You can visit The Weave’s website at or phone Tim or Lucy directly on: 01625 261 276

We interviewed Lucy to find out more about her experiences of running her own business and The Weave’s product and services.

The Interview

Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield – How did you first get in to the Carpets and Rugs business?

The Weave Macclesfield pictured in their office in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

We first had the idea that we would love to have an Oriental Rug shop after spending 3 days choosing and haggling over a rug in a shop in Udaipur, India. The idea of working in such a fascinating and creative business for which we both shared a great passion was very tempting and motivational.

The Weave’s Retail Showroom – Adelphi Mill Offices to rent Macclesfield

Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield – Is your retail showroom / office space in the Adelphi Mill your business’s first premises?

The Weave Macclesfield pictured in their office in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

The Weave opened it doors in January 2005. Our first shop was located in Bollington Cross and although the shop was a lovely space we always knew that a larger premises was needed, ideally a location with convenient parking for customers. So, in October 2009, we took the plunge and moved our shop to the much more spacious and picturesque location at The Adelphi Mill.

The Weave’s Retail Showroom – Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield – What would you say are the pros and cons of running your own business?

The Weave Macclesfield pictured in their office in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

We do enjoy working for ourselves and the freedom it gives us to take our business in the direction we choose. We mostly love the purchasing of new stock; for us to be able to continue to search for interesting and unusual rugs to buy, even after our own house had no more capacity for rugs, was a major influence behind opening our shop in the first place.

The downside to running our own shop is the time given over to keeping the shop open 6 days a week. We would like to have more time to plan and execute additional trips to Iran and India and such places in order to find a greater variety of rugs closer to source.

Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield – What was the first rug you ever bought?

The Weave Macclesfield pictured in their office in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

We bought our first rug together in Udaipur, India. It was a Kashmiri wool rug and we still love it.

Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield – Is it true that hand made rugs, like private number plates and fine art, not only hold their value but can also increase in value with time?

The Weave Macclesfield pictured in their office in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

It is indeed true that hand made Oriental rugs do hold their value well due to their artistic and durable qualities. Some rugs will actually become more valuable with time but not all rugs are of good enough quality to be realiable as an investment. That being said, as the costs to weave rugs are increasing all the time, so too will the value of good rugs as the cost to replace them will have increased.

Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield – How many man days do the more elaborate rugs take to make?

The Weave Macclesfield pictured in their office in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

A skilled weaver can do about 6,000 knots per day. The time it takes to weave a rug varies, mainly being dictated by the quality of the weave i.e. the knots per square inch.

The following are examples of different common qualities of a 9’ x 12’ carpet and the time required to weave them:

Knots/sq.inch Total knots in 9’x12’ Carpet Time required to knot 9’x12’ Carpet
60 933,120 5 months
91 1,415,232 7.9 months
135 2,099,520 11.5 months
180 2,799,360 15.5 months

It is usual for more than one person at a time to work on a rug of this size. Therefore, the time will be divided by the number of weavers who have worked on the rug, although the man hours remain the same. These time frames though do not include the shepherding, clipping, spinning and dyeing of the wool, nor the designing, clipping, washing and drying of the carpet.

The more elaborate the use of colour in the rug the greater the time it will take to make it. This is due to the pattern being more complicated to follow and the time-consuming process of changing wool more frequently.

Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield – How long will a handmade rug last?

The Weave Macclesfield pictured in their office in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

A handmade rug should last a lifetime of use. The Pazyryk rug is an extreme example of the longevity of rugs; it is the oldest known rug and it dates back to 500 BC. Most rugs will last between 50 – 200 years with many lasting for several centuries.

Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield – Any other comments?

The Weave Macclesfield pictured in their office in Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield

The Weave has been able to expand the products it sells now that we have a larger space. We now have an amazing range of hand carved wooden furniture and crafts from Pakistan, India and Ethiopia. We feel these tribal pieces compliment our rugs wonderfully and we can offer beautiful and original storage chests and cabinets to our customers, as well as small pieces, such as hand crafted bowls and mirrors, which make lovely gifts.

A Touch of The Orient

Situated alongside what’s often described as one of the prettiest parts of the Cheshire Ring Canal route, The Weave Oriental Carpet & Tribal Interiors showroom has finally found the long awaited but perfect setting to display its many thousands of beautiful Oriental Carpets and Tribal interior furniture items.

With the new showroom now open, The Weave offers all the space customers need to leisurely enjoy the greatest selection of quality Oriental carpets in the UK.

As explained by the proprietors, the production of truly authentic Oriental carpets varies greatly according to lifestyle, skill and the availability of materials to the weaver. Ultimately, the design of the carpet is a reflection of the weaver’s personality and as such we should never see two identical pieces. It’s this important factor which explains why we see such a great variation in the styles, sizes and qualities of carpet available. Price too is largely dictated by this and explains why we see 5x3ft tribal rugs from around £70 to thousands for the bigger and more beautiful pieces. It’s this very diversity of the weaver’s ideas that allows Oriental carpets to look fantastic in all types of settings, modern or traditional. It’s all about finding that perfect piece to suit the right home.

Whether you’re looking for that spectacular, one-of-a-kind showpiece or a smaller rug to add a touch of cosy character to your home you’re likely to find that perfect piece at The Weave.

New smaller offices to let in Macclesfield almost completed

Around a month ago, we posted the news that works was under way on three smaller 300 sq ft offices to meet the demand for smaller offices in Macclesfield. These offices are now nearing completion with smart new, modern, wooden doors, part glazed.

New smaller offices to rent in Macclesfield pictures coming soon!

As soon as the new Macclesfield offices are completed and available for leasing we’ll snap some pictures and add them to the website.

Even though the new offices aren’t quite finished yet, we’ve still been showing them to a number of interested, prospective Macclesfield tenants and we expect these three new offices to go very soon. If you’re looking for a 300 sq ft office to let in Macclesfield we strongly recommend you arrange a viewing as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.

Smaller Macclesfield offices to let are suitable for both start-ups and smaller established businesses

These smaller offices are ideal for new start-up businesses who are taking on office space for the first time. They’re both affordable but give your business room to grow. They are also suitable for more established Macclesfield businesses with only a small number of office staff or perhaps a larger business, where many of the sales staff don’t need a permanent desk in the office space and can share office resources. In terms of the maximum number of staff possible in a 300 sq ft office we recommend you arrange a viewing and decide for yourself as the answer will vary from business to business, depending on the type of business, the layout of the office and the amount of furniture in the office space.

Offices Macclesfield – How to Maintain Low prices From Your Electricity Provider

One of our Macclesfield office space tenants recently received a letter from EON, the electricity supplier outlining their new prices for the next year.

When this Adelphi Mill Offices Macclesfield tenant first moved into the mill he gave both EON and British Gas a quick call for power quotes.It is really important to let each energy supplier know that you’re considering the option of a rival company because once the energy supplier knows you’re talking to a rival company about electricity for your Macclesfield office space they will often offer to beat the other supplier’s quote. In this way, it’s relatively easy to achieve a good price.

Considerations when deciding on your energy provider for your offices in Macclesfield

There are a few things to think about before deciding on a deal.

1. You would be wise to take advantage of your office space storage heaters, which can heat up overnight and arrange a separate night tarrif (lower rate) for these.

2. Will you be using a lot of electricity in your Macclesfield office over all? If you’re a one man band you might want to choose a deal with a lower standing charge but slightly higher costs per killowatt. However, if you’re a two man plus business or you think you’ll be using lots of electricity, then you may be better opting for a higher standing charge and lower unit prices per kilowatt.

Response to the letter our offices Macclesfield tenant received

The letter revealed that the revised electricity prices for year two were to be significantly higher than the great deal in year one.

The offices Macclesfield tenant simply called up EON and expressed his dissatisfaction with the less than competitive prices he’d been given for the second year. EON were then quick to offer up lower prices which, based on the tenant’s usage so far, would actually reduce his bill by around 5% (instead of increase it by the 20% on the initial prices outlined in the letter). The figures were agreed and EON issued a further letter to confirm them.

The moral of the story is that you should always query your revised electricity prices each year to ensure you’re getting the best deal. It only takes 10 minutes and can save you £100s or even thousands in lower bills.
