As well as being a predominately British orientated and handmade gift shop we are also proud to stock and work with new Graduates.
Catriona Archibald. A graduate from the University of Cumbria studied Contemporary Applied Arts. She creates ceramic homewares, jewellery, gifts and decorations inspired by the textures and patterns of forgotten objects and combines hand building and slip casting techniques to create quirky and unique pieces.
Pioden Prints. Angharad studied textile design and Lizzie studied embroidery where they first met whilst at Art College in Manchester. Inspired by travel and collected items, their designs add bold, contemporary, colourful and pattern to traditional inspirations. Their collection includes greeting cards, notebooks and bags.
Ailish Henderson. Coming from a fine art background she was introduced to textiles and developed her watercolour and ink illustrations into textile form. Ailish uses her own designs that she has digitally printed onto fabrics alongside Harris Tweed and Liberty print to create wearable pieces.
You can can find a collection from each of these artists and makers here at Hesta Scene.
