Ben is a detail obsessed illustrator and surface designer from Norwich, via Cape Town who likes pencils, shiny trinkets and heavy objects. He combines multiple processes to create intricate and delicate illustrations and repeating patterns full of fine detail and vibrant colour for a diverse array of clients.
Much of Ben’s work is inspired or informed by his love of nature, having grown up wanting variously to be a shark, dinosaur or David Attenborough crossed with Indiana Jones, only relatively recently settling upon Illustration as a compromise allowing him to bring those fantasies to life on paper.
Ben’s illustration practise and vivid fantasy life is run from a small but perfectly formed studio in the heart of beautiful Bath which he shares with an unnecessarily large collection of very sharp pencils and occasionally a small dog.
When not illustrating, Ben can be found cooking, travelling or picking up heavy objects and putting them back down again, sometimes for hours at a time.

Since Christmas 2014 Jack has raised £3,000 for St Peters Hospice. 

Jack Bones is a retired senior lecturer in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Bristol. He has worked with wood as a serious hobby, mastering the craft of wood turning many years ago.

Through his passion of wood he has built boats, furniture and also instruments. 

At 86, and with mobility difficulties, Jack has been able to continue this passion and skill for wood turning, by sitting at a bench–mounted lathe; producing hand crafted wooden toys and bowls in a variety of woods, both indigenous and exotic. 

Jack is a dedicated supporter for the charity St Peters Hospice. 

Jack funds the material costs himself and he also offers his time creating these beautiful individual bowls and wooden crafts. 

All proceeds go to St Peter's Hospice.

HanMade was born out of Hannah's love for all things handmade and is now an online and bespoke personal service, based in Bristol and London. She is mostly inspired by scripture and nature and loves playing and creating with words and simple images. 

The online shop was launched in October 2015 after being probed by friends to sell some of her work. It offers personalised pieces such as illustrated quotes and wall art, cards, gift wrap, bookmarks and other bespoke pieces. Each piece is designed to encourage, enlighten and enjoy!

Each piece is lovingly handmade using high quality materials such as watercolour, lino print, kraft card and ink.

As a Polymer clay jeweller and mosaic artist Caroline is enjoying taking these two different art forms, to new imaginative levels of depth and pattern. Each piece is an adventure in colour and form, and has its own character and story. With the jewellery Caroline likes to make comfortable, wearable jewellery, to add a dash of style to all kinds of outfits. Each unique piece is made with intricate patterns and strung together with glass beads and sterling silver clasps.

The celebration of colour continues with my mosaics which are formed by firstly hand painting tiles which are then broken to create beautifully intricate pictures that are often inspired by ever changing hedgerows. over the past 10 years she has been showing at a variety of Arts Trails in Bristol and enjoys teaching the art of mosaic and polymer clay cane making She looks forward to bringing these crafts to a wider audience.
