Beth Knight Art…

“Beth Knight studied illustration at Norwich University of the Arts where she first started experimenting with printmaking. Having gone on to work various design roles she rediscovered her love of lino printing in 2016 and now creates small editions of hand printed lino cuts inspired by her local Suffolk scenes and also the wilds of Wales where she grew up. Her images convey the spirit of the natural world and the history and story of the landscape. Dogs and other favourite animals also feature in her work, capturing their movement and character with carefully thought out lines and shapes. She enjoys how the materials themselves create effects and textures to give each print it’s own unique feel and individuality, making each piece a one off work of art.”

Susie G Art…

“I live in Suffolk and love to travel. My work is greatly influenced by my love of everything Australian and I choose to work in colours of the Ocean, beach or bush. My use of dot art in almost everything I do, stems from an appreciation of aboriginal drawings. “

Galina Stasenko…
 
“In 2016 I set out to make some special gifts for my daughter’s bridesmaids. Hand-made beaded jewellery became my inspiration. I have never attempted such craft-making up to that point. And since then I have embarked on a journey of continually discovering my latent hobby, which flourished into my passion, and ultimately the creations in front of you.

All my items – necklaces, bracelets and earrings – are made from carefully selected minerals, crystals, pearls and beads.  In the same way I put my soul while creating these exclusive pieces of my own design.  Because this is not what I do for living but only hobby, I never sold any one item, only gave away as presents to my friends and loved ones.
 
The reason I want to take part in craft fair – to discover how people react on hand made jewellery and whether they like to buy such a things. Also create new friends and meet good people.  So I did not set up company. I am full time worker and everything I do is either after work or at weekend.”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Handmade Designs by Cal…
 
“I am an artist and designer living in Cambridge and take much of my inspiration from the coast and countryside around the UK.  I originally started painting with watercolours and have spent many years creating a collection but I wanted to use these paintings to create quality home decor and personal accessories.  Most of my watercolours are available as cushions, throws and bags using soft velvets, chenilles and cottons and are all made by myself.  In addition to this I have recently started painting with oil paint and have a collection of seascapes which can be purchased as one off original pieces or in some cases as a limited edition print.”

Headsup Crafts UK…

“My name is Sara Cook I am based in Woodbridge Suffolk and I work with wire, beads to create Bonsai Trees, sculptures and all types of creatures. These include Tarantulas, Scorpions, Octopus, bugs and dragonflies.

I only started working with wire a few weeks ago, although I have always been creative with previous crafts such as crochet, hats & fascinators.

However I feel I have now found my true love in the crafting world by working with wire, beads. I hope you like my creations also.

Most of my beads are found in Charity Shops where I recycle necklaces and bracelets. I need large beads so I find this is the best place to acquire them, helping out the Charity shops along the way.

I also like working with chicken wire and have created large bunny, frog and crocodile sculptures.”

 

Items start from   £8.00 – £50.00 on my stalls

Tarantulas – £10.00

Bonsai from £25.00 – £40.00
