I have explored traditional stitch and print within my work, reflecting on the working class values of community life with its humour and warmth. My work also reflects on the women who were in my life as […]

Amanda Barnes Textile Artist

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: Scotland   

I make small creatures using lots of different fabrics and try to give each one it’s own character using small accessories, props or clothes. They are purely for decorative purposes.

Each piece I make is totally unique. Even if I’m using the same fabric or accessories, each small creation is absolutely unique. My latest mice ‘The Inquisitives’ are all paired with a preloved, vintage or antique item such as a wooden cotton reel, antique thimbles or piece of antique lace.

I love to use Harris Tweed, Velvet and Liberty Fabrics for my small creatures and it’s especially important for me to use either British fabrics or recycled and vintage pieces to give them that extra special touch.

Andrew Spilsbury Shaker Boxes

category: Furniture & Wood   

region: South West   

I have had a love of working with wood for over 40 years, mostly furniture making but also some turning and now box making.  I love the smell of wood when it is worked, exposing and presenting the grain for others to appreciate.  I have made furniture inspired by pieces made by the Shaker craftsmen and now make Shaker boxes to their traditional patterns, using Cherry and Maple woods steam bent and fastened with copper tacks and rivets. My boxes, trays and carriers with handles make thoughtful and useful presents. I continue to develop my range of creations in order to offer useful and decorative objects to treasure and enjoy.  Sizes are from 9cm x 6cm x 3cm to 36cm x 25cm x 15cm. Prices from £20 to £140 approx.

Ann Povey’s work involves two distinct elements, the handmade and found objects. The objects have been used, discarded and forgotten, they appear to have little or no intrinsic value but seem to dictate what their ultimate purpose will be and which material they will be partnered with. Working with ceramics and metals, traditional Chasing and […]

Anna Blair

category: Textiles & Stitch - Interiors   

region: North West   

I work with fabrics, predominately silks, to create wall art and accessories. My work is influenced by details found within the natural world. Lichen and flowers are my main source of inspiration, with their subtle but intricate details reflecting empathetically the textures I create within my work.
I combine the use of traditional shibori techniques and incorporate a modern twist to create unique items. Shibori is the Japanese technique of binding fabric to create a resist when dyeing or to add a three dimensional texture to fabric. The modern influence is also seen in the process I use for adding colour. I use digitally printed fabric using designs created from my own photographs of plants and flowers
