Hi, I’m Alicia. A self taught botanical printmaker with a degree in photography. Passionate about the natural world, it is at the forefront of my creative practice. My printmaking practice explores my connection to the plant kingdom through the process of botanical monoprinting. I create botanical artwork by printing directly with pressed foliage. These monoprints explore the shape and form of plants that I collect whilst walking out in nature.
I produce one-off artworks which illustrate the hidden details found within individual plant species, from Daffodils to Snowdrops. These can then be turned into cards and limited edition prints as well as selling the originals. I create work simultaneously with the seasons, picking and pressing plants that appear in a variety of natural habitats.

I am a stitcher living in Penzance, a year ago I retired from work to focus on my making and to build a small business.
I use reclaimed fabrics (felted wools, cottons and linens), appliqué methods and free motion stitching. My work straddles craft and art and up until now has not been very functional. I am starting work on making smaller functional items such as needle cases, pin cushions, brooches, and hanging decorations, all in the same rustic folksy style I love with a contemporary twist.

Another Shed Production
My name is Jane and I am a metal and leather worker based in South Devon, my designs are inspired by and reflect coastal living. Rugged and robust my work takes you on a journey of discovery from the source of the metal to the style and design of stitching every piece has a story, it really does!
I strive to make every part of my work from templates to makers stamp and everything in-between. Using carefully selected salvaged metal from Devon and Cornish shipwrecks I forge my buckles and Coffee scoops exposing years of erosion and patina created by the sea. I hand cut, hand stitch and hand finish the British sourced leather belts and bags. The stitching denotes maritime symbols all part of the journey making each piece totally unique.

Article Studio was born from a lifelong love of craft and design, sparked by my grandmother giving me a sewing machine at age six. Over the years I explored many creative outlets as a respite from my full-time high street buying career, with jewellery making eventually becoming my focus, working mostly in precious metal clay. In 2019 I decided it was time for a change, relocated to Falmouth to pursue a more creative life and opened Inspire Makers in June 2020.
It’s been tricky to carve out space to focus on my creative practice alongside establishing a business. However, I’m gradually finding the balance, enjoying more time in my studio. After investing in a kiln with a plan to add glass elements to my jewellery, I started experimenting with glass fusing and this is now where I devote most of my time. My work is heavily influenced by geometric shapes with colours inspired by the local Cornish environment, such as fiery orange sunsets, pink-streaked sunrises, stormy blue skies, and sunny aqua seas.

Bonbi Forest is home to all sorts of goodies with my art on them including pins and jewellery, stationery, art prints and cards.

We are a small family business, comprising of Amy and Adam and our two young boys. After working at sea for many years we decided that we wanted to do something positive about the staggering amount of plastic waste in the oceans. Fishing equipment lost at sea is called “Ghost Gear” and can travel many miles ensnaring all manner of marine life until it reaches the shore. We handmake our products out of Ghost Gear, utilising the dying art of ropework skills. We source the Ghost Gear from the beaches in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly as well as using donated rope retrieved from local fishermen.
Therefore, our items vary in size, colour, style and sea-worn-ness, dependant on the Ghost Gear, making every item unique. We are Made in Cornwall accredited.

Hello, My name is Lucy, a self taught textile artist living in Truro. I love the Cornish coast and take every opportunity to get my “fix” of being outside breathing in the sea air. It’s of no surprise that living and being so near to the sea that it has such a big impact on my art, and I take great inspiration from the beautiful coastal scenes. I try to recreate the sea views, charming seaside cottages and anything else that captures my eye.
I have a whole collection of handmade decorations of seals and seagulls who have been personified with beautiful Breton striped jumpers, or wearing a bright woolly hat and carrying something and looking mostly cheeky. These items are so popular especially in the run up to Christmas as people love a memento of a holiday or something that reminds them of Cornwall on their Christmas tree. Everything I make is made with fabric and thread and I use free motion embroidery to draw and embellish and create detail.
Daisy Dunlop Jewellery
I’m a jewellery designer/maker working with Silver, Gold, Enamel, Bio-resin, Precious and Semi-Precious stones from my studio in Hayle. My jewellery layers texture, text and colour as well as mixing materials to create hand made one of a kind pieces in small quantities. After a few years of training and trials I established my business in 2003 and have been privileged to work as a full time designer maker ever since.
My work has had many incarnations and continues to change and develop. I still love making more than anything and am at the moment most influenced by the vast beaches, horizon lines and post industrial landscape of where I live which has leant a sea-worn, eroded, gnarled feel to my current pieces.

Hello my name is Sophie a designer/maker creating jewellery from silver, wood and stone. Since graduating in 2011 with a degree in silversmithing and jewellery, I have been running and growing my business Dreamspell Jewellery from my studio nestled amongst the trees and wildlife in North Cornwall where I live with my partner Dominic and two young Daughters.

Eleanor is a printmaker based in south-east Cornwall. Inspired by the natural world, she works mainly with drypoint and monotype printmaking methods, creating very small runs of these original prints. Brought up on a Cornish smallholding – running wild and free in the surrounding fields and woodland – she has been immersed in nature ever since she was a child. Moving to London to train in art conservation, she went on to work in the British Museum, the British Library and the Natural History Museum, but her beloved Cornwall was always calling. She now lives in a little cottage, where you can mostly find her working in her little studio.
I am an illustrator/bookmaker working in Cornwall. I graduated with a Masters degree from Falmouth University in 2009. Since then I have set up the ‘Old School Press’ where I design and illustrate limited edition self publications. I have always had a passion for storytelling and this is at the heart of all of my work. My stories are mostly told through pictures using minimal or no text. Themes are often grown from small observations of my surroundings but then take you far away from the familiar on an unexpected journey. I use a combination of drawing, printmaking and bookbinding techniques to realise my projects. From my narratives I also produce a range of open edition prints and cards.
I handcraft automata, tableaux and jewellery. I predominantly work with copper, brass and silver, I also use reclaimed hardwood for the bases of my metalwork (much of which is sourced from local boat yards or the shoreline). I use enamel and patination techniques to achieve colour and texture in my pieces, I also add tiny details in reclaimed tin.
Inspiration comes from the world around me and a lifelong passion for nature. Favourite subjects include scenes of trees, boats, dog walkers, and British wildlife. My work is endlessly adaptable so I am always open to ideas for bespoke pieces.

Felix the Wood
I’ve had a deep passion for woodwork since an early age, after making a traditional greenwood hay rake with my dad when I was 13 I got hooked. I’m nearly 17 and have been making wooden spoons for almost three years. I source all my materials from our small coppice woodland of 4 acres meaning all the wood I use is sustainable and has a very low mileage (about a 5 minute walk from my small workshop). I also create my wares with sustainability in mind, meaning I only use hand tools such as axes and knives allowing the customer to see the tool marks left by me, telling a story of the making process and deepening the connection between maker and consumer. The use of hand tools and traditional methods of woodwork means that I’m helping to rebirth traditions that were on the brink of being forgotten.
Quality and functionality is my main goal, every spoon is obsessively hand carved to perfection. as well as giving everyone the opportunity to use and love a good wooden spoon I also teach spoon carving workshops!
Floradore is a printed goods brand with a focus on all things floral. Inspired by nature and painted by hand, every single design starts life as an original painting created in Falmouth, Cornwall.

We are Katrina and Claire and have been friends for 15 years. Foxy Pots are handmade, small batch, concrete pots and homewares.

Created using rainwater – something we have a lot of in Cornwall – Foxy Pots come in a range of finishes and colours, or in their lovely natural state.
Due to an obsession with house plants and succulents we needed pots for them to live in, and so decided to give making concrete planters a go. Our houses and gardens are now crammed with plants, but they now sit in lovely handmade creations.

Gail Cooper Ceramics
I work from my garden studio in Trevaunance Cove. My ceramics are thrown by hand on the potters wheel using only local St Agnes clay. They are minimal in design using my surroundings as inspiration. Around the cove the engine houses with their straight lines and tapering chimneys, anemones exposed on the rocks at low tide, with my glazes reflecting the natural colours around St Agnes, the North Cornish sea, seaweeds, ferns and granites.

My work is primarily wheel thrown, and I make the slips and glazes I use myself. I am very conscious of my environmental impact, and therefore use an electric kiln and am mindful of the materials I use. My aim is for my pottery to add a little joy to the everyday rituals of our lives.

I’m a Photographic and Digital Artist based in South West Cornwall. The majority of my artworks start with photographs I have taken, some of which, with special effects, I select to use as prints. However, in the main, I use the photographs as the starting point for my digital artworks which sit midway between photography and painting.
On the photographic side I favour Impressionist Photography and use the technique of blending multiple images. I also like to use Intentional Camera Movement to create interesting, atmospheric images. I use these images to produce greetings cards and art prints.

Jo Soar textiles
Hello I’m Jo. On a daily basis I make my daydreams and stories into a reality, by manipulating dry wool fleece into figurative sculptures, primarily in the forms of bears. I use old vintage tools, books and found objects in my work. Sometimes they spark an idea, other times they simply compliment whatever image I have in my head, forming an ideal base where the bears are assembled and mounted. Although no two are ever the same, they seem to have somehow developed a reputation for having the cutest bottoms!

Laura Lane Ceramics
Hi I’m Laura Lane. My work uses local clay, glazes and is sustainably fired. Functional Cornish inspired ceramics with a sense of fun. Naïve illustrations and a simple stoneware collection.
Unique laser cut art, jewellery, homewares and gifts, designed and made in Cornwall.
I create unique collaged landscapes entirely out of found rusty metal. Mostly using fragments of corrugated roofing sheets flattened out and copper from old boilers cut to expose the natural Verdigris colouration.
I create compositions that usually contain walls, buildings and hedgerows and that strongly evoke the wilder aspects of Cornwall. I am fascinated by industrial archaeology and the decayed edges and muted tones of rust perfectly represent this. I also create a range of ‘Artefacts’ reworked metal tools and adornment inspired by the bronze and iron ages.

Melody Ryder Designs
I create freehand machine embroidered lampshades and homewares, using a soft natural colour felt to create unique and functional pieces of art. Once lit they produce a soft glow of a light and also allow the design of the shade to be lit to its full potential.

Rachel Corney Illustration
I graduated from Falmouth University with a BA(Hons) in Illustration in 2013. In 2019 I turned to illustration full-time, and I enjoy developing and refining my illustrative style whilst working on my business, Rachel Corney Illustration.
I work in ink and watercolour to create highly detailed and vibrant paintings inspired by wildlife and nature. Not everyone is lucky enough to have wilderness on their doorstep, but there is a wealth of wildlife waiting to be discovered in all environments. I’m keen to highlight wildlife that many people will have access to. Sometimes ‘common’ wildlife or tiny creatures can be overlooked, but they are no less interesting or essential than other native species.

I make serveware and jewellery motivated by the beauty of form and function, and love of process. My pieces are hand formed using traditional tools and techniques from brass and recycled silver with a focus on the pieces being created for everyday use. The tools themselves lend individuality to each piece. I frequently use rivets in my work. They are a simple yet incredibly intimate method of joining my pieces. I enjoy letting the metal speak for itself through simple, timeless designs.

Real Pressed Seaweed Co
I make art out of local seaweed. The process I have refined bonds the fibres of the seaweed with the fibres of the watercolour paper retaining the shape and the colour of the seaweed. The final pieces act as a constant reminder of the sea and the beauty within. We are very lucky to live an an area of outstanding beauty and the seaweeds that wash into Falmouth Bay are reflective of that.
The pressings, collages and shaped artworks I make are all sustainable and only use watercolour paper, seaweed and pressure. I do not harvest seaweed but collect seaweed as it drifts by on its way to the shore. Standing in the water allows me to clean it with seawater and visualise how it will look on paper.

The magic of new growth in spring and summer and the beautiful seed heads left behind in autumn and winter.

I make lampwork glass jewellery and miniatures in a tiny shed I built myself at home in Newlyn. I make completely unique pieces of jewellery using a hot torch to melt rods of coloured Murano glass, with which I ‘paint’ tiny landscapes and seascapes while the glass is molten and malleable. I also use glassblowing techniques to encapsulate small flowers, mushrooms or jellyfish into clear glass pendants and sculptural miniatures.
I first fell for the material when I worked in a furnace glassblowing studio in America many years ago, but I’ve only recently set up my own small-scale glass studio at home in the last 3 years.

Made of heavy duty marine canvas my ‘Ditty Bags’, ‘Boat Bags’ and other homewares have their origins firmly in the maritime world, based on ancient designs they are extremely hard-wearing, very practical and extremely jolly! I make everything myself from my workshop at home using sailmakers thread, top quality fittings and I hand splice all the rope handles.

The Nature of Paper
Pam is a self taught paper artist taking inspiration from nature and in particular the diverse range of plant life found right here in Cornwall, from the traditional hedgerows to the sub tropical gardens.
Working with different types of paper, alongside acrylic paints, inks and pastels, Pam recreates 3D sculptural flowers and miniature collectibles.
Each piece is made by hand, using various methods and paper cutting techniques. Pam uses her own photographs, found botanical plates and the occasional real flower to inform her work, although she much prefers to leave the real thing for the bees, insects, and other people to enjoy.

The Paper Otter
I create papercut artwork and greeting cards with a bold, colourful and minimalist style. I have been papercutting since 2014 and have developed my style and range of products considerably during this time. My background is in science and nature having worked in research and as a science teacher.
Wildlife is my main inspiration but I also enjoy creating designs with everyday themes such as hobbies and pets. My greeting cards have a wide range of designs, including dog breeds, ocean wildlife and flowers.

The Sage Hen
Using a handmade bar of soap is one of the everyday pleasures that bring us joy. Our products use natural ingredients and are always palm oil free. Handcrafted in our home studio in small batches using natural plant based oils, essential oils, mineral clays and botanicals. We are committed to reducing our waste as much as possible and use only plastic-free packaging that can be re-used, recycled or composted.

The Single Fin Collective
We design art prints, cards and gifts inspired by surfing and the Cornish coastline, we create them through a mixture of hand-drawn and digital illustration from our base in Falmouth. We are a self taught pair, having enjoyed photography, illustration and printmaking as hobbies for many years we took the brave step in 2017 of putting a small selection of prints on Etsy. This tiny experiment has grown into a thriving side hustle which we do alongside our day jobs and as much surfing as we can fit in! We like to create simple yet eye catching designs which people will fall in love with and have in their homes for years and years.

My ethos is to use my practice as a form of meditation. I pride myself on creating each piece of jewellery by hand, no two items are ever the same. Where possible I use eco friendly and recycled products including sterling silver, brass, aluminium, resin, enamel and gold accents.
Victoria & Ashcroft strives to create something for everybody at a range of prices for everybody’s pocket. After all, we all love a bit of bling!
I am a traditional illustrator with a proclivity to draw birds. I spend time birdwatching and know their character as well as their appearance. I try to cram that character into my illustrations. I sell original drawings, prints, homeware, cards and gifts. I also draw family portraits and pets, but birds are my favourites. I am based in Penryn, at Carbon Gallery on the high street.

I create leather handbags and accessories in my West Cornwall studio. I have designed and made handbags since 2015 (with modern and vintage textiles and leather) then in 2020 changed to working solely with leather. I craft each item by hand using oiled or Italian veg tan leather hides. My style is minimalist with a focus on fun and practice design.

Hello! I am Claire, creator behind Windsweptgirlie, oh, and I make mermaids for a living!

Zaleika Anna Jewellery
I create minimal jewellery from silver and brass using a combination of traditional and modern techniques. I combine geometric forms with soft curves to create unique designs. My aim is to make jewellery that is bold but can be worn everyday.
