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.

I live and work in the Lake District, and love to create handmade bags, purses and home accessories from beautiful fabrics… when not walking my Border Terrier Heidi on the fells! Each of my pieces is quite unique, including my new collection using our local Herdwick Tweed, which is pure, undyed and sustainable.

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 and 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 and 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.
