We are an artist duo, Liz and Brendan aka Aubrey's daughter and Charlotte's son. As well as creating up-cycled clothing and accessories we are master printmakers who between us dabble in painting, drawing/illustration, sculpture, book binding, forest school and dress making.
We both teach as community artists, venture into schools, run private groups and teach one to one classes as well as developing our own projects and offering commissions.
Recycling is always considered throughout the work we do, either during lesson planning or developing our own art works.
If you would like to know more about our work, or if you are interested in using our services for either commissions or art classes, please get in touch.
Hello, I'm Jacqui, a fibre artist, pagan hippy and lone parent. To breath life into my creations I use my trusty hook, beautiful hand dyed yarns and whatever else comes to hand, plus a dollop of intuition and magic.
As well as selling my wares here, you can find me on various social media platforms - good for keeping up to date on what I'm currently working on.: facebook https://www.facebook.com/BytheCrookofmyHook/ and twitter https://twitter.com/Bycrookofmyhook Instagram https://www.instagram.com/bythecrookofmyhook/ and Pinterest: https://uk.pinterest.com/Bycrookofmyhook/
'Ellie'gant & FUNctional Stuff made from Recycled Glass
Hello & Welcome to Ellie B Glass
This is my little adventure into all things glass. My affair with glass started over 20 years ago & has now crept into a full time obsession.
It's really simple :-
Play with glass - minding the sharp edges!
Drink - responsibly of course but I need the empty bottle, however I do have
help from my local pub too!
Sleep & Repeat !
And this is the stuff which makes me smile !
* All my lovely customers - without you I could not play
* Glass - whether it's an exciting customer commission or pieces to stock my shops with - it all inspires me
* Recycling - anything
* Best of all recycling glass!!
* Doing my bit for the environment - Kitty the Kiln & Walter the Workshop are powered by 100% renewable energy via Good Energy
* Not wasting off-cuts - check out my little Christmas Tree
Have fun always!

We specialise in creating new and beautiful treasures by upcycling pre-loved or neglected stuff! Our products are lovingly handmade from unwanted and salvaged objects and are often unique or limited edition due to the availability of materials. Our philosophy is to re-use wherever possible.
Welcome to my little soap shop. Here you will find a selection of yummy skin goodness that contains no artificial 'anything' and no unnecessary colours or ingredients.
A desire for the simple
I'd had an urge to create my own soap for a while so I gave it a go and loved the results. I wanted something that was as natural as could be, with no nasties in it. I sourced fantastic ingredients...organic if possible...and I was off.
Handmade Haven soaps are made in the traditional cold-processed method, in small batches, using the finest ingredients. Once the batch is made it is cut by hand then left for four weeks to cure. They are then packaged as simply as possible using materials that can be recycled.
Ingredients - Raw organic coconut oil and the finest grade organic cocoa butter are used as the base for the soap. Both are wonderful emollients, and the cocoa butter is also soothing to the skin. Combining these two ingredients produces a hard bar that is wonderfully moisturising, with a great... More
Hi I’m Jan and I am a self-taught pyrography artist.
Pyrography is the art of producing designs on wood, leather and other materials by using a heated tip that burns into the surface.
I discovered pyrography on holiday in Scotland several years ago, and I’ve been hooked on it ever since.
I enjoy art that is functional as well as fun, and I use pyrography to decorate everyday items such as wooden chopping boards, trivets, and hand turned bowls. All pieces are treated with food safe oil so they can be used and enjoyed, although variation in grain and colour can occur with use.
I like to work in different styles and although I can repeat a design, no two pieces will ever be the same, as no two grains are the same. All are individually hand decorated making each piece unique.
If you would like to know more about my work or have any questions then please get in touch.
Thank you for taking the time to look at my shop.
Hi I'm Kirstie Adamson, a magazine collage artist based at Banks Mill Studios, Derby
I have always had a great interest in finding ways of using waste materials in my artwork. I turned my attention to waste paper and in 2007 I decided to specialise solely in magazine collage. I don't use any imagery from the magazines but I use the colours and textures that I find as an alternative to paint. It is intentional that when viewing my work that the method used is not instantly obvious. At first glance it is often assumed that I have used paint and only on closer inspection does it become apparent that the piece consists entirely of ripped and cut magazines. The intention is to challenge our perceptions. Highlighting how small changes in our methods and materials can enhance our work while reducing impact.
