HanneMADE

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Mixed Media & Recycled   Printmaking   Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Yorkshire   

I am a teacher and artist living and working in Brighouse, West Yorkshire. I was an art teacher with a degree in Visual Arts and Culture, but 10 years ago I wanted to develop my own practice away from school and discovered an outlet for my ideas and creativity through completing a City and Guilds in embroidery, and my business, HanneMADE, was started.

I love mixing media together and the theme of journeys runs throughout my work, be they my own journeys collecting inspiration or my materials’ journey, as I upcycle where possible. I use a range of techniques in my work from mono screen printing, digital printing, college, many textile techniques, print… and I love to stitch, be that with my machine or by hand. I produce a range of pieces of work from unique framed pieces, pieces to wear (brooches and pendants) and greeting cards.

Harriet Caslin

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

Design led porcelain lighting and functional tableware are handcrafted in small batches from Harriet’s boat house studio on Mersea Island, off of the Essex coast. Influenced by her Scandinavian roots, Harriet’s designs focus on simple form, linear patterned design and soft contrasting colours to invite a tactile approach to her work.

“My work is all about appealing to the senses. I love the idea of someone using one of my designs and enjoying these little details; how comfortable the cup feels in their hands when drinking tea, how the colourful light transforms a room when it’s turned on. To me this is what creates an enduring and enjoyable relationship between the person and the functional objects that they use every day…”

HayleyGlassDesigns

category: Glass   

region: London   

Hayley Gammon works mainly in small ranges, as the ethos of her work is ‘handmade’ Glass Blown technique. Working in small ranges means that she is able to keep a keen eye on development, with the work evolving and adapting with her skills, whist maintaining a theme in her work.
With glass there is always something to learn and a new skill to master. It has a huge element of problem solving and demands quick thinking on your feet – this drives the artist and keeps the work fresh and exciting. Hayley enjoys making work and keeping the work accessible. She has developed a range of work that uses intense colours and simple forms. Prices range from £35 to £350.
Hayley feels privileged to work in this industry and would not see herself doing anything else.

Heartfelt by Liz

category: Fashion Accessories

Heartfelt by Liz has been in business since 1996 and has developed a wide range of unique wool creations and specialist skills in textile crafts. In 2012 Heartfelt Studio from Ayrshire moved to Argyll to the stunning Victorian Railway Station at Dalmally. It is a working station and the Studio and gallery are set amongst the stunning Highlands landscape.

We have a full range of equipment for many textile crafts here at the studio as well as our own native rare breed sheep. I hold an NDSF in floristry and studied Millinery at Cardonald College and Fashion and design and pattern construction.

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: South West   

I come from a family of sheep farmers and weavers, with a court dress maker in the mix too so I feel I have fibres in my blood stream. Mum and Dad met in a textile mill, so there you go it was inevitable!  My wonderful Granny Mary taught me to stitch at an early […]

Hedge and Hog: Designs and Prints

category: Printmaking   

region: North West   

I am a printmaker, working primarily with linocuts and collagraph techniques. I am a trained Architect and completed my PhD in 2004. My handmade, limited edition prints are all made from my original sketches that are inspired by my life around me, and by seeing the beauty in the mundane. You will also see a layered colour palette, often bright but muted, and subtle. I aim to create prints that can inspire a smile, a memory, and a piece of art that you can form your own personal associations with.
Having studied Architectural Conservation, mark-making is of specific interest and how different surfaces and cutting methods can give individuality to a piece. With price range mostly between £15-£65, they are an affordable means to collect original, handmade and unique art.

Helen Bolland Shibori Pleated Silk

category: Textiles - Clothing   

region: North West   

Helen’s passion and aspiration is to create striking and original fabrics of complexity and beauty; whose colours appear to ripple and pulsate, shifting chameleon-like as light diffuses across their unique textures.
​Drawing her inspiration from the natural world – exotic birds, sea creatures, flora, the living landscape, ​Helen’s interpretation of the ancient Eastern craft of Shibori has two distinctive elements, bringing together the artisan and the artist, a union of control with the uncontrollable.
​The creation by hand of the pleats is a practical, mechanical, steady, reliable and very time-consuming process; the dyeing process is far less predictable, as the dyes are given free rein to blend and flow. There is an empathy with the sculptor who feels her role is to release the creation already hidden within her materials.

Helen Burgess Jewellery

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: South East   

I am a self taught silversmith, working with traditional techniques in sterling silver and the occasional hint of gold, along with pieces made from Precious Metal Clay. I love to create hammered effects on sterling silver. With the precious metal clay I enjoy discovering new textures and contrasting bright silver with oxidized silver. The precious metals are often combined with precious and semi precious stones to create contrasts of colour and texture. My designs have been inspired by nature, art and love of colour and texture.

Helena Rudkin Handmade Jewellery

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: Midlands   

Helena Rudkin Handmade Jewellery is handcrafted by Helena who individually makes each piece in her Derbyshire Dales workshop.
Helena is intrigued by the narratives conveyed through the making process and draws inspiration from the construction, forming and manipulation of reticulated and fused silver. She has always needed to handle and play with her materials to understand their unique qualities and potential. She takes pleasure in the surprise of discovering a new form or texture or a new way of handling a material which changes its appearance and gives it a new identity.
Helena completed her fine art and education degree in Lincoln with first class honours and has used her artistic talents to educate the younger generation and develop her own creative journey.

Hello Greens

category: 3D Sculptural Work   Paper   Toys & 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.

Hendrike creates jewellery with a clear, understated and elegant aesthetic. Being initially fascinated by lines, she is increasingly intrigued by patterns and what happens when repetitive patterns are interrupted. Her current focus is on ancient Greek ceramics and Islamic decorations. These patterns find expression in her pieces through the application of gold on silver backgrounds, […]

Henrietta Fernandez

category: Jewellery & Silverware   

region: South East   

I design and make understated, contemporary silver jewellery. Size ranges from tiny ear studs to bold necklaces and bangles.
I studied Jewellery at Middlesex Polytechnic and apprenticed with Wendy Ramshaw in the 80’s. Ideas for my work currently come from my love of 60’s graphic design, floral patterns and repeat pattern in textile design.

I’m meticulous about detail and finish and pieces I make are extremely precise. Everything is handmade and finished by me at my workbench. I hand pierce one-offs and use small batch production techniques, like casting, for some elements of my work – all made originally from my own handmade masters. Oxidised silver, 18 ct yellow gold, resins and beautiful stones accent my jewellery, adding depth and luxury. I apply a fine-papered finished by hand giving my work an elegant satin finish.

region: Midlands   

My practice comes from a lifelong and deep need to make, draw, stitch and paint. I have worked specifically with vintage textiles, paper and haberdashery over the last 15 years, under the name of ‘Hen’s Teeth Art’ by Viv Sliwka. I work spontaneously, reacting to the inspiration provoked from folk art, dogs, hares, flowers and […]

Heron Design Studio

category: Fashion Accessories   

region: London   

Heron Design Studio specializes in textile design. At the moment my main focus is on hand-painted fashion accessories such as silk scarves, shawls and hand painted silk wall art. As I am passionate about nature, most of my designs reflect this.
I am classically trained fine artist but I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of wearable art. So naturally, painting on silk has come as the best idea. Heron Design Studio aims to create such wearable pieces of art that will be timeless and versatile. Every piece that is created is unique.
Every design is sketched first on a piece of paper. That is followed by colours being carefully picked. After that the scarf is painted (free hand) with no stencils or aids. Small imperfections are just a part of hand painting process and make the painting unique and unrepeatable. Each of the motives created has different technique (metallic outliner or watercolour technique etc) and different material (different types of silk fabrics) used. That is because suitability is carefully considered.

High View – Bernard Harrison

category: Bookbinding   

region: South West   

I trained in bookbinding at Westminster College Oxford and have been enjoying making books for sixty years. I retired from teaching twenty years ago and earned income from a design and print business. More recently I enjoyed giving free tuition in bookcrafts, but circumstances now lead me to concentrate on preparing books for sale and bookcraft kits and instructions for distant home learning.
I have developed several styles of binding such that young or old beginners to the craft can quickly produce excellent results with minimal tools. Finished books are available for sale, or can be made to order. I still have digital printing equipment capable of producing greetings cards and such like. My ethos and choice of materials strongly supports handmade, recycled, and quality products. In common with many craftspeople I work in a timely fashion but will not be rushed. Traditional bookcraft methods can require a great deal of drying and resting time (weeks rather than days). Further details on this and related topics are available at http://bookcraft.me
