NEWS: We're on the move - Relocation, Relocation!


The Studio is on the move and we are relocating. After moving to Winchester to study at Winchester School of art in 1999, I have decided to upsticks (with my husband and daughter) and move back to my native Northern Ireland.

This is such an exciting time for the studio and for me personally. This is something that we have been planning for sometime & the count down to the move is finally here. Its only two weeks and counting!


From 01 August, the studio is taking a temporary break from any new client commissions to allow us to wind up our last projects before my iMac goes in a big box for the move on 14 August 2017.

We temporarily close the studio on Friday 11 August and we will reopen on 18 September 2017 from our new base in Co. Down, Northern Ireland. This long closure is for my sanity (!) and to allow for a family holiday at the beginning of September to catch our breath after four months of planning the move. Phew!

All emails received between 11 August 2017 to 17 September 2017 will be responded to on my return to the studio week commending 18 September 2017.


Thank you Hampshire for being a great home for almost half my life. Thank you to all the glorious friendships I have made there (please come and visit). I've graduated, met my husband, got married and had my baby here - One day we may be back :)

So, there you have it. I'm typing this surrounded by boxes and packing tape, and I'm looking forward to getting April Mawhinney Design Studio up and running in it's new surroundings.


Thank you all for your support and wishes - see you on the other side! :)
