Simon Pilkington

category: Paper   Printmaking   

region: South East   

I started out as an Artist / Illustrator but soon added printing to my practise….

Letterpress printing is a passion of mine, it is such a great medium – it encompasses so many different skill sets – from knowing about the myriad of papers, using ink, the setting of type by hand, design & fantastic old presses! My work ranges from one off prints to posters, cards & custom orders, such as invites.

Snowdon Design & Craft

category: Printmaking   

region: North West   

I’m a self employed illustrator and printmaker, producing hand lettered and illustrated screen prints. I’ve spent most of my creative career as a graphic designer. In 2006 I embarked on a part time Graphic Design and Illustration degree, fitting my studies in around my full time job. I graduated from Manchester Metropolitan University in 2009 with a first class degree. In April 2012 I left my day job to fulfil my long held ambition of becoming a freelance illustrator and printmaker. I love to travel and draw much of my inspiration from folk art and vintage typography from around the world.

SOBU (Sonja Bucherer)

category: Fashion Accessories   Mixed Media and Recycled   Textiles - Clothing   

region: London   

I’m a north London based designer/maker. My speciality is mixing new and recycled materials, combining different patterns and textures to create highly individual pieces. For the past 13 years I have worked as a textile designer (appliqué and embroidery) for two international exhibiting studios. My designs have sold to high street brands as well as exclusive fashion and interior companies in New York, Australia, Japan, Italy, Paris, Frankfurt and London.
I’ve always loved making things and enjoy the whole creative process: To come up with an idea – then cut, sew, knot, stamp, iron, thread, glue, label – whatever brings the idea to life. I’m an avid collector of fabrics, buttons, ribbons and other curiosities. Beautiful stones, driftwood, books, films, food…all sorts of bizarre discoveries are my inspiration. As well as creating designs commercially and for my own SOBU collection, I have dedicated time over the past nine years to sharing and passing on my passion for the craft by running stitch clubs and craft projects at various north London primary schools. I hope you enjoy some of my creations. Please visit my website via the link below, where you can browse my work or contact me for commercial or private commissions.

Sonja Bessant Jewellery

category: Jewellery and Silverware   

region: London   

Sonja is a self-taught jewellery designer maker from South London who makes high quality, contemporary, handmade jewellery. She grew up in a family who ran a jewellery business and began creating pieces in both her father’s and grandfather’s workshops at a young age.

Sonja often uses pearls and gold as embellishments and etches personalised messages onto silver. Each item is handmade with a passion for making beautiful and, most importantly, wearable jewellery. Her inspiration comes both from living in a big, bustling city, and also, contrastingly, from the simple beauty of nature. Geometric shapes and simple yet beautiful lines often feature in her jewellery collection.

Sonja would like to share her love for jewellery and hopes that people will enjoy wearing her jewellery as much as she likes making each piece. Each item of jewellery is made to order making it truly unique. Prices start from about £25 to about £250 depending on the chosen design and finish.

Sophie Bruen Ceramics

category: Ceramics   

region: South East   

I graduated from Falmouth College of Arts with an honours degree in Contemporary Crafts, where after experimenting with many materials I gravitated towards ceramics and its endless possibilities. I have since moved to Buckinghamshire where I have set up my studio at home creating handcrafted ceramics, mostly functional, inspired by the natural world and my love of entomology. All of my work is foodsafe, microwave and dishwasher safe.

Sophie Buckingham

category: Glass   Jewellery and Silverware   Printmaking   

region: East Midlands   

I was first introduced to Contemporary Enamelling during my Masters degree in Print Making. Enamelling is the art of fusing glass onto metal. I like to use copper for its versatility and its beauty as a base metal. My work takes multiple short firings to create an individual piece.

My inspiration spirals from a multitude of objects that carry a history. The origins of this inspiration develop from my fascination with the juxtaposition of artefacts, objects and specimens found within museum collections.I have found inspiration by collecting old maps, hand written postcards, notebooks from the 1930s and antique lace that had been salvaged from old garments.

For me there is a narrative quality that connects all the objects; each containing a trace of the past. I am interested in the idea of embedding an image into the surface of enamel and thereby adding a sense of permanence.
