category: Paper   

region: North West   

I create handmade paper lamps, lampshades,and homeware that feature one of my own hand drawn illustrations. My inspiration comes from the natural world, patterns and graphics. Each lamp, lampshade and candle cover is finished with a solid wooden ring that completes the natural and simple look of the product. I grew up loving painting, art and […]

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Scotland   

I am an artist, a collector of “treasures” and a compulsive hand stitcher. I combine these passions in making one-off wall pieces that spark a sense of nostalgia. I use materials with a history – the kind of things that lie forgotten in the bottoms of drawers. Commonplace items that were used by our mothers […]

Alice Fox

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

My work combines techniques from textiles and printmaking traditions, the two often combining to make abstract contemplative pieces that celebrate and carry an essence of what I experience in the natural world. I aim to draw the viewer in, invite them to look closer and perhaps notice things they might otherwise have over-looked. I work with paper and cloth as well as making use of materials gathered from the places I walk.</p>

My work ranges from large-scale installations for specific spaces to intimate framed artworks and artists’ books. Each piece develops by layering up marks and textures, building up subtle surfaces and exploring materials through the making process. I use found metal objects with tea to make marks on paper, silk and linen, making use of natural dye techniques. I set things up and watch them develop, responding to the marks that appear with further layers of print and the contoured lines of hand stitch.

Described as a textile artist, fine art bookmaker, sometimes a designer maker, I choose ‘paper artist’ to emphasise my love of paper, print and graphics. Everything is made by me.  I cut, sew and assemble by hand.  I have a computer, digital camera and four old typewriters and my home is a treasure trove of […]

My name is Anya and I’m the creator & curator of a compendium of curious creatures made in wire and reclaimed materials. I moved to Hereford in 1994 to study an HND in Design Crafts and never quite managed to leave the beautiful landscape I found here. I am a twister of wire and words […]

Bask Bindery

category: Leather   Paper   

region: London   

Bask Bindery is noted for its fresh approach to the age-old profession, the bindery is set to shake up the industry with its handbound journals uniquely fused with striking collages designed to be covetable by the beholder and beyond. All pieces produced by Bask Bindery are designed to have the “oooh factor”. Truly individual, each piece is made by hand with high quality materials and include detail such as hot foil tooling, suede or leather onlays to add extra dimension to the collages.

All journals are Bradel Bindings. Bradel binding can be traced back to the 18th Century and the bookbinder has juxtaposed this traditional binding form with vivid modern collage designs to create standout handmade designs that retain functionality. For example, each journal can open fully. Each collage was digitally printed before covering the outer boards to create a truly distinctive handmade journal. Prices start at £95 for a Bask Bindery passport holder, ranging up to £120 for a handmade A4 journal. Bespoke commissions are welcomed.

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Paper   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South East   

My work is inspired by stories, poems, over-hearings and memories. Re-using materials, especially textiles, is an integral part of my work. I like to feel that they have ‘lived a little’ with their own story to tell showing signs of ageing and how they have been treated or, perhaps, mistreated. Every discarded object is a […]

I work from my studio on the coast of the beautiful Gower Peninsula. I specialise in creating contemporary and original black and white papercut artwork. I love simple, bold and graphic imagery and I aim to create designs that bring a smile. I am inspired by the naivity of primitive art, the humour of childrens’ […]

Cathy Hilton Artisan

category: Paper   

region: South West   

I produce illustrated sculptures. Images are drawn, cut out and reassembled in to a three dimensional form.
I work with a very tough, hand-made paper that is strong enough to be structural, and has a charming texture and tone.
I seek to provide moments of joy, so humour, love and surprise are recurrent themes and I relish the expressions of delight that my work causes.
As an illustrator I am self-taught since O level. I have a degree in Industrial Design which contributes to the structural element of my work.
I’m drawn to help people express their appreciation for others, so there’s great tenderness in this work.
I generally start from the emotion I wish a piece to evoke, and design from there.

Clare Caulfield

category: Mixed Media and Recycled   Paper   Printmaking   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a Saltaire based artist and printmaker.  My work is inspired by my travels to some of the world’s most beautiful cities including Paris, Venice and New York.  Working in a lively drawing style I aim to capture the excitement, life and vibrancy of each location I visit, documenting my travels through the use of sketchbooks and photographs.  On returning to my studio I then produce mixed-media paintings, original screenprints & drypoints, limited edition prints and handmade cards.  These are exhibited throughout the U.K. in regular solo and group shows.

Closer to home I have also produced a series of work capturing the rugged beauty and charm of Yorkshire’s much loved coastal towns: Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes.
