Many of the artisans here at EcoCreate offer a bespoke commission service so if you can’t see exactly what you are after then don’t be afraid to ask! Simply approach the individual maker to see if they can provide what you require and give you a no obligation quote.
Here are a few examples of what our members offer ….
The Unique gift company offer a truly versatile service if you require an item in upcycled wood. They offer everything from furniture to homewares, personalised items to shop fittings.
We take on a whole range of commissions, from something as simple as a custom sign to refurbishing a local cafe. We enjoy this kind of work most of all, especially when someone comes to us with an original idea and says ‘could you make…?’ We’re promoting this more and more via our website and local events.
Greenabubs offer a bespoke service for textile and fibre items including beautifully handmade clothes.
I love to make clothes for babies and children, I knit and sew using only the finest quality materials. My favourite fabric to work with is Organic Cotton knit as its just so soft, perfect for precious little ones. I love to knit with Organic merino yarn for the same reasons.
TangleCrafts Su Mwamba creates beautiful eye catching collage notebooks, journals and brooches by upcycling old unwanted postage stamps.
There are particular colour combinations that I’m drawn to personally, but I love the challenge of creating something based on somebody else’s preferences, or of using a more limited palette based on stamps available from particular countries. I’m very often pleasantly surprised by the results.
The Captain & Lovely offer custom hand dyed yarns and heirloom blankets
I try and be as eco conscious in my choices as possible, the majority of the yarns I use are Organic And all my dyes are either food grade,natural or non toxic. The wool I use is also British spun Cruelty free (non mulesed) All the fabric and yarn I use in my blankets and bags is either preloved or Organic. My packaging is either biodegradable, recycled, reusable or sometimes all three!
KL Metal Art create wonderful sculptures and homewares from upcycled metal, Keith is regularly approached for commissioned pieces and cleverly adapts his style and design to suit your needs
My most popular items are owls, clocks and the guitars. The future of the business is directed towards more personal pieces
Kirstie Adamson Artist can depict your loved ones in a unique magazine and junkmail collage…
The commissions are the most popular pieces, the fact that they are so personal I think is the main reason for this.
