Loopy Ewes

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   Textiles - Clothing   

region: South West   

I bought my first sheep six years ago, absolutely determined to work with their wool to produce contemporary, artisan products with real provenance. My beautiful textiles products for the home can be traced from design, through production and right back to my flock of sheep that graze the Cotswolds countryside. My limited edition collection includes handwoven blankets, knitted accessories and sheepskin rugs. Across the entire range I aim to bring together woollen accessories for the home that offer aesthetic pleasure and a sense of warmth and cosiness. Most importantly, I want to connect my customers with provenance, with rural skills and with the feeling that they own something truly handcrafted, and evocative of our working countryside and great, British wool.

Louise Cottey

region: South West   

I find weaving to be an endlessly fascinating craft – watching how the different colours and yarns interact in the warp and weft, or playing with the structure of the cloth to create a new texture or pattern is something I will never tire of.
My aim is to create hand woven textiles that are equally attractive to the hand as to the eye. Textiles are a part of our everyday lives from a christening shawl, a comforting blanket to an elegant shawl, so it is important to enjoy them.

category: Metalwork   

region: Midlands   

I am a wire artist based in Staffordshire. I produce 2D and 3D wire drawings of everyday objects incorporating thread in my work to add colour. The focus of my work is the line of an object, it’s this that I find the most interesting about everyday objects and is so often missed within the […]

region: Wales   

Creating wild, but delicate, hand-built ceramics I use glazed and un-glazed porcelain to construct beaten, distorted forms with soft curves and interrupted contours. I like to engage physically with the raw material, pursuing a careful balance between fragility and bold strength, while the firing process enables the clay to develop a more undulating, independent sense […]

Louise McLaren

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: Scotland   

I create delicate, intricately patterned images filled with romantic, uplifting and inspiring sentiments and use these to make extra special, handcrafted gifts to give to your nearest and dearest! Each design begins life as a pencil drawing which I cut by hand, with a scalpel. This process fills each image with character and idiosyncrasies that cannot be digitally replicated. I also produce screen prints in limited edition runs.

Luckie Woodworking UK

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: East Midlands   

Born in 1955 I took early retirement back in 2018 I decided to form my own woodworking workshop. Being a time served engineer I enjoyed making things hence I decided to make things out of wood but the difference is that the items have to be high precision which has been my ethos in the engineering. So I prefer to make one offs or small quantity production items so I’m not tied down to the same things all the time. I like to design and produce fine furniture based on receiving commissions, should I be lucky enough to have clients willing to give me their business I welcome the challenges it brings for Modern Contemporary style.

In taking the vision of clients and producing bespoke furniture that comes to life gives great pleasure as a furniture maker.

Lucy Campbell

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: South West   

My name is Lucy and I am a trained silversmith and jeweller based in Lyme Regis, Dorset. Since graduating from University in 2005, I have set up my own workshop and small business at home, making and selling my work.

My main source of inspiration comes from the beach and the sea. I like to spend time wandering around the beach collecting found objects and taking photos to inform my work. I have a particular fascination with surface textures found in this environment.

I generally work in silver (sterling, 925), however more recently I have started taking commissions in gold. All work is handmade by myself from scratch and each piece has had many hours hard work, love and care gone into its creation!

Lynn Kirsten Clarke

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: Wales   

I am a jewellery designer based near Tintern in the Wye Valley. I work mainly in sterling silver, using the rural surroundings as inspiration. My designs reflect my interest in natural forms and the endless possibilities of silver, which can be forged, hammered and textured to create an array of organic and abstract shapes. I often incorporate fresh water pearls or semi-precious stones into my work. The result is jewellery designed to be bold and eye-catching, yet delicate and easy to wear.

I design and make wearable wool jewellery and hair accessories inspired by my vintage collections and a quirky sense of humour. The jewellery is based loosely on an imaginary garden crossed with a delicious haberdashery shop. The work is strongly coloured and has a delightful nostalgic charm. I have been in business for nearly 16 […]

made by Rose

category: Jewellery and Silverware   Mixed Media and Recycled   

region: North West   

I create jewellery with a playful feel that is a pleasure to wear and own, finding inspiration in the things I love to collect, vintage fabrics, buttons and natural forms collected on walks near my home. I studied Jewellery Design and Making BA Hons at Buckinghamshire Chilterns University, graduating in 2007. Since then I have been producing my jewellery and sell through galleries and individual boutiques.
My collection includes charm bracelets, earrings and necklaces, each one slightly different due to the hand made elements and precious vintage buttons that are in limited supply. I first crochet, knot or plait natural hemp/cotton cord to form the base for my pieces. Using copper and silver wire, I create planished charms in a variety of organic shapes, some oxidised. Vintage buttons and beads along with etched wooden veneer charms that feature my own intricate organic designs complete the pieces.
