Vicky Baker

Victoria worked in the field of Theatre, Film and Dance costume for 14 years. Since then she has been working in Textiles, and through this developed an interest in using acrylic for such things as handles for her handbags and a range of hand-painted and engraved buttons. This then led her to create a range of jewellery, hand-painted and engraved pendants. Recently Victoria has been experimenting with a mixture of silver and acrylic, creating some simple, elegant designs in jewellery.

Sally Bettridge. Ceramics

From her West Berkshire workshop, Sally Bettridge produces a wide range of slip decorated earthenware. She employs traditional techniques in her work, applied to a contemporary design approach resulting in functional domestic ware that is light, lively and thoroughly modern.

Christine Brewster

A contemporary functional basketmaker, I use tried and tested traditional techniques to make robust useable baskets with a distinctive style. All my willow baskets are unique and are made by my own hand using English grown materials.

Jo Dewar

Jo has developed a technique of manipulating and weaving wire creating vibrant pieces of work ranging from teapots, jugs to xmas decorations. She also has a passion for shoes and makes small handmade paper shoes overlaid with monoprint that are individually decorated. email:
