Claudia Crafts

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I use fabrics, beads, buttons, fibres and yarns to create different types of work. My main craft is textiles and I make quilts, wall hangings and jewellery. The jewellery is made in crochet with the addition of beads and vintage buttons and sometimes fabrics. I also use some dyes and paints.
My background in crafts goes back a long way. All the women in my family are artists in some way so I learned from them, and since I can remember I have always worked in crafts or painting.


Claudia Wiegand Handmade Glass

category: Glass   

region: Midlands   

I design and make contemporary kiln formed glassware including home accessories, personalised gifts, jewellery, wall art and splashbacks.
Exploring colour combinations and mixing translucent, opalescent, iridised and dichroic glass with metal inclusions, I also experiment with different temperatures to create perfectly smooth or highly tactile pieces. My work is predominantly abstract, defined by the fabulous range of colours available. Nature is a major source of inspiration – geological patterns and elements, trees branches and roots, shore findings – but it is the material itself, the way it transforms from solid to liquid and reveals its amazing hues and textures which keeps firing my passion for glass. Originally a mosaic artist, I trained in Bristol and work from my studio near Pershore where I run workshops and have a number of kilns and workbench space available for hire by glass fusing enthusiasts.

Coo & co

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

My background is fine art, I then spent 15 years as a community artist facilitating creativity in others, a few years ago I found screenprinting to be the best way of reproducing my ideas, I like to use collaged vintage paper under prints and use fabrics to make useful and beautiful items. My themes seem to always be about nature but whatever the subject I love to celebrate the scratchy hand drawn line.

Copper Creations

category: Metalwork   

region: Wales   

Inspired by artisans on my travels, I have been designing and creating hand-punched copper lanterns and decorations for about eight years.  I take my design inspirations from art, nature, fabrics and pattern forms.  Each and every hole is punched by hand before being shaped into an exquisite lantern or decorative piece.  I am constantly experimenting with the medium and welcome commissions.
