Artist profiles and statements

Chris Urwin Art and Jewellery

I make aluminium with silver jewellery and textured silver jewellery.. My influences are natural forms, texture, colour and pattern from the environment and the shapes seen in mid century textile design. I love looking at art and design in all its forms; i feel encouraged and excited by all the creative people working out there! Linked to this I make watercolour and mixed media art work where you will see subtle nods to the textures, colour and marks used in my jewellery.. I am a passionate maker and consider the work i produce to be accessible to all in terms of both design and cost.

Coppermoss Jewellery (Kate Johnston)

Kate creates unique Wearable Art Jewellery and Sculptures. She designs and makes colourful statement pieces made from mixed materials including Eco silver, Copper, Brass, Bronze, Enamel, Jesmonite and Gemstones. Coppermoss Jewellery collections are made up of unique one-off pieces hand made by Kate in her studio in Wem, Shropshire.

She is currently exploring etching, patination and mark making in her jewellery and sculptures. Her work includes a range of statement rings, brooches, necklaces, earrings and bangles. She sells in person at makers markets, open studios events, exhibitions and via her website. Kate has spent a lifetime working in the Arts as a designer and community artist and has been developing and growing Coppermoss since 2019. She takes inspiration from ancient relics, tribal jewellery, Picasso, Alexander Calder and the Cosmos.

Spindle Printer

I am a New Zealand born, Leeds based printmaker and I offer a range of original linocut and wood engraved prints that reflect my love of the natural world, history, surrealism, vintage illustration and my off-beat imagination. I like to make my art engaging and full of character. I like to take conventional subject matter and give it a twist, using a mixture of bold shapes, fine details and patterns, while experimenting with different printing techniques to achieve this.

Ruby Gingham

Sewing for a long time I now make bags, I love working with fabric; the colours, designs, textures. It’s great to take a piece of fabric and shape it into a functional item. I work with the aim of wasting as little material as possible, making from new and reclaimed fabrics. Most of the smaller items I produce are made from my off cuts.My aim is to produce good quality, functional items in my own style.

Upsydaisy Craft

Hello I’m Nat from Upsydaisy Craft I’m a ceramicist in Sheffield. I create handmade and handpainted kiln fired ceramics in the form of mugs, pots, dishes, jewellery and artwork. I’m inspired by smiles, bright colours and British biscuits! I make everything myself from a big lump of clay in the studio at the bottom of my garden. It’s complete joy and I hope that is reflected in my work!


Freshmattic is a printmaker, artist and general doofus, specialising in low brow, high spirited and affordable art. He makes a mess on anything, usually using neon, collage, lino, screenprint, thick black paint and other disposable methods to create vibrant and cheeky pop art.


Ume is the creative outfit of North Wales based jewellery designer and maker, Emma. I make simple, elegant jewellery which is all made using traditional silversmithing techniques and processes and uniquely handmade in North Wales, using recycled materials.

I first fell in love with jewellery making whilst I was studying Jewellery & Silversmithing at University in my early twenties. I went on to have two children and a long career working as a Social Worker, before coming back to jewellery making when my children flew the nest. Between March and December every year you’ll find me at different artisan markets across North Wales. When I’m not working on Ume, you can find me walking in the Welsh mountains, drinking lots of peppermint tea and spending time with my family and friends.

O Ceramics

I take my inspiration from local landscapes of North Wales.

Stitch and Pick

Stitch and Pick are Heather and Sharon who share their passion for the collection and re-use of fabrics and thread to make interesting one off pieces.

Lost In The Wood

Laura Cameron (Lost In The Wood) uses crochet and needle felting to create vibrant soft-sculptures inspired by anatomy, medicine and plants. Laura enjoys subverting the expectations which often accompany textiles, promoting them as a place where art, science, and stories meet. She is based in North Wales.

Kathy Hutton Prints

I’m a printmaker influenced by ceramics, pattern and seasonal botanicals, finding inspiration in the everyday fallen treasures. I incorporate many hand printing techniques, building up printed layers slowly with as much love for the process as for the plants that inspire, creating one of a kind prints and small original editions alongside handprinted cushions, teatowels and packs of seasonal cards.

My work has a simplicity of shape and line drawings play an important part. I mix hand drawn and printed line work with splashes of screen or block-printed colour. Bold silhouettes acquire their own character when combined with the spontaneous nature of mono-print, allowing the improvisation and development of a style of printing that fits with my own unique handwriting.

Originally from The Wirral, I completed a degree at DJCA, Dundee in Printed textiles with printmaking as my support subject. Now I live and work in Wiltshire where I teach printmaking from my home studio.

David Kennedy

Designer and maker of unusual homewares from windfallen or discarded wood and materials. I love to create colourful, striking and often ‘impossible’ pieces to create intriguing pieces for the home.

Stiwdio rfhardy

Bright patterns and colors of original artwork on paper and wood, unique jewelery and accessories. Screen printing by hand in Bethesda.

SANS Studio

SANS Studio is run by printmaker Emily Gerrard, it is a home for limited edition creations that honour the beauty of handmade techniques and traditional processes. At its core the studio centres around screen-printing, embracing imperfections and repeated forms. Many of the works focus on reclaimed and forgotten objects such as old books, photographs, scraps of paper and vinyl records. You can expect visuals that merge Pop Art influences with a Punk twist.

Everything the studio produces is hand printed and made by hand wherever possible. The product range spans screen printed graphic t-shirts, hand-bound reclaimed record sleeve notebooks, printed greetings cards, silver gelatin hand printed 35mm photographs, original screen printed art prints and even photobooks. The studio’s ethos is deeply rooted in celebrating traditional methods and analogue processes both in print and photography, with an emphasis on producing original, yet affordable items that are widely accessible.
