My work invites the fingers to explore the nuances of grain. Starting with a locally sourced, sustainably cut “coppiced” tree, I cleave it using the ancient technology of the bodger. The pieces that emerge from this technique follow the undulating curves within the tree, and give my work a fluid, organic feel. My interest lies […]

Please Shut the Gate!

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: East Midlands   

Some time ago I decided that it was time to dust off the 19 Century Letterpress in my old outbuilding at my home in Braunston and start creating my own work again, and so Please Shut the Gate was established! At first I produced a sign for my front gate (as my hens were getting a little too free range) and then a pile of Christmas cards as the festive season approached; now my range of products has expanded, with a collection of kitchenware, home furnishing & fashion accessories.

All the designs are unique – they may be printed from the same lino block but the ink, fabric, pressure, temperature in the studio all play a part in making the pieces individual. Once printed the designs are then made up into a range of items including tea towels, bags, cushions and even a satchel.

Having worked as a Product Designer for 8 years (specialising in Kitchenware) I left full time employment 2 years ago to renovate retro furniture and become a freelance designer.

Polyanna designs

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: North West   

Polyanna Designs was founded in 2007 in North Wales. I’m self-taught and I design and create very feminine original pieces of jewellery made from sterling silver, semi precious gemstones and Swarovski crystals. I believe my designs are unique. My main collection is made using Swarovski Elements, a synonym of quality and luxury.

Whilst doing my Master’s degree in Finance and Banking I was gaining experience in fashion design. It was then that I discovered a greater passion for jewellery making, which started through my never ending wish to change things that I see. This made me think “why don’t I just make exactly what I want?”

I am based in Penzance in Cornwall in a workshop full of old singer sewing machines and spotty, stripey, flowery fabric. Me and my little band of stitchers design and make a range of quirky accessories for fashion and the home. We use freehand machine embroidery to draw the designs in stitch onto a variety […]

Possible Mirror

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: London   

Possible mirror specializes in making bespoke mirrors in a variety of natural woods and hand painted finishes. There is an ever-expanding range of designs to choose from and we welcome commissions. We make conventional mirrors, including oversize ones, but our unique feature are Box and Picture Mirrors.

Box Mirrors contain objects – shells, marbles, small glasses, eggs, dried flowers and so on. The interior walls of these mirrors also become part of the design using maps, fabric, collage, and even faux fur. Each mirror is different to some degree and some are unique – items sourced at the nearby Spitalfields Market will not be available again.

Picture mirrors incorporate images into the mirror design. All Picture Mirrors have anti UV glass to prevent deterioration. An attractive ‘antiqued’ mirror glass is also available and this can be used in any of the mirrors we make. Prices are from £50.00.

region: Midlands   

Print Garage is the dark and dusty underground lair of Iain Perry: self-styled, swashbuckling squeegee warrior. I create vibrant screen prints investigating the minutiae of my surroundings.  I draw inspiration from old technology, tools and toys, cinema, record sleeves and the world of science. Originally trained in painting I have since discovered that screen printing is […]

Rachel & George

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North East   

I am a designer/maker based in the North East creating a range of textile artworks using freehand machine embroidery. I don’t have any formal training, I used to work as an artist in schools and community centres but over the past couple of years have focused on developing my textile work. Having experimented with various techniques I happened upon the amazing world of freestyle machine embroidery and rediscovered my trusty sewing machine. It is a really satisfying process, building up images and shapes in pieces of fabric which come alive with the stitching process and addition of haberdashery finds. The work is mounted either in embroidery hoops or stretched over box canvas. The mounting style gives a contemporary feel to the presentation of the artworks and has a great tactile quality.

region: East Midlands   

Over the past couple of years my jewellery work has explored the technique of drawing on enamel. I was taught enamelling at college and took a dislike to it, something to do with the bright colours! It was therefore a conscious decision when I revisited enamelling that I would eliminate colour altogether and just explore […]
