Thistledown Nest in Marshfield is home to furniture restoration artist

MARSHFIELD – Christine Clarke has spent decades honing design and maker skills across numerous disciplines, from painting and sculpting to upholstery and lost-wax casting.

Each of her varied skills can be seen throughout Thistledown Nest, her workshop and showroom on Webster Street, from finished products to those just now getting new love and care.

A Kingston native, Clarke returned to the South Shore with her daughter last year from California’s Bay Area, where she was sole proprietor of a decorative painting and design practice. 

In a move that she described as very unusual for her, she rented the space she now occupies at 844 Webster St. unseen. Formerly a yoga studio, she quickly got to work transforming the purple, pink and light blue space into the perfect space for furniture restoration.
