Meet Our Makers!

As you will see from the links on the left we have a selection of fabulous artists and hand made artisans who also sell their work on-line.  We have many more designer/makers who showcase at our arts markets and here are some images of them in action. 
Where would we be without Megan and Ian? There would be no scones fresh from the oven, endless cups of tea, spicy home made soup or cake.

Quirky sock toys, painted picture frames, knitted kawaii and irresistable monkeys.
