Hello Greens

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Paper   Toys and Automata   

region: London   

It was during the November 2020 pandemic that my dolls first came to life. Home-schooling was included in our daily routine despite my five year old’s turned up nose. In a creative attempt to encourage reading I had the extravagant idea of crafting the characters in a story we were reading to visually bring the story to life – a story I had written about two paper dolls and their paper adventures. Penelope and Presley were the first two puppets I created. Over the following year the demand for my dolls increased tenfold. What initiated as making dolls for our own play has very quickly turned into my dream job: in January 2021 my dolls were accepted by The British Toy Makers Guild and over the next 18 months my dolls with be featured in publications such as the Dollshouse and Miniature Scene Magazine which also features more about my foraging around the Thames in Greenhithe.

Mirjami Design

category: Leather   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   Toys and Automata   

region: Midlands   

I make handmade collectables such as woollen animal paperweights, giant leather bookends and quirky bookmarks. Having worked as an upholsterer for several years, many of my sewing stuffing and design skills were easily transferable in terms of creating my products.
I am inspired by nature, particularly woodland animals and also British and European folklore. I use natural and ethical products where I can such as British woollen fabric from our local mill, leather from a local wholesaler and recycled polyester.
My products range in price from £7.50 for an animal bookmark to £300 for a bespoke large traditionally made Teddy Bear with tailored clothes.
