Handmade gifts for sale at our ever popular selling exhibition.

Arthur Alvis  

We are delighted that Arthur is returning to the museum with his handmade crafted metal sculptures.

Ashleaf Printmaker 

Ashley Hutchinson is the designer and printmaker behind Ash Leaf Printmaking Studio. He studied illustration at Brighton University, specialising in printmaking.

​He has continued on and now produces limited edition lino and wood cut prints with a twist. Incorporating embossing into all of his designs, which gives them a unique look and feel. All of the prints are embossed by hand using his three etching presses. As a designer, he is inspired by nature and the patterns within it, combining this with his bold, graphic designs.


The Flower Girl  

I am a Bristol born artist with a background in tattooing and a slight obsession with finding new creative outlets.

With an aim to make gifting a little more eco friendly, I started making plantable cards. My plantable seed cards are a way to give a little extra gift to the planet, as well as the recipient, as they are embedded with a bee-friendly mix of wildflower seeds on 100% recycled card.

All of the artwork featured on the cards is completely my own, whether its hand painted tattoo flash or multi layer linocut prints, I aim to have a design to suit every occasion and style


David Lyon

David Lyon is relatively new to the art world, taking up watercolour painting during Covid lockdown in advance of retirement from full-time employment in 2021. After studying for a degree in horticulture, David followed an active career as a scientist in the global food and perfume industries. With a scientific background, David is naturally drawn to capturing detail in botanical and other subjects with his watercolour paintings, and this is where most of his passion lies.


Di Weissberg 

Di produces hand-made, funky up-cycled clothing, accessories and soft furnishings. Using screen printing and recycled fabrics, she creates colourful and creative designs, layering images and taking inspiration from nature and her regular visits to Cornwall.

Gosia Weber 

Gosia creates bags, purses and other accessories. Using their own unique designs, they create handmade items from a number of discarded, scrap and off-cut materials including leather and upholstery fabrics. They focus on bright colours and strong patterns in an aesthetic often described as classic/retro design with a modern twist.

Sarah Davis 

Sarah is a regular in our shop, the selling exhibition is an opportunity to show some of her larger pieces.

Her work often follows natural themes in abstract and figurative styles, using a variety of glass techniques. Inspiration includes the natural world and the beauty of the Gloucestershire countryside, especially the Severn Valley and Cotswolds where she lives.

Selby Jonathan Ceramics 

 We are delighted to have Selby Jonathan Ceramics exhibiting with us.

Sue Bibby

Sue designs and makes with fabric, stitch and her trusty Bernina sewing machine. Her first love is drawing and her work begins with first-hand observation and sketches. She never ventures far without a sketch book and finds gardens and wildlife sources of endless inspiration, stimulus and excitement.

Having assembled her ideas, spontaneous and precise free machine embroidery allows Sue to “draw” with the needle, fashioning texture, depth and relief. She uses hand stitches to add fine detail and reclaim old needlework techniques to use in contemporary ways. She collect scraps of vintage fabrics to fashion unique backgrounds for her embroidery, embedding the stories they tell into her work.


Tara Davidson

Through her ceramics for home and garden, she reflects her love of the countryside and the wide open skies of her childhood, in the texture she finds and creates and the way colour reacts to it.

Inspired by the nature in her garden she creates frost-proof handmade garden ceramics in sculptures that are both practical and beautiful, providing birds, bees and hedgehogs, with food, water and shelter with a range of bird houses, bird baths and cane toppers.


The Crafty Hen 

Their craft kits are handmade in their crafty studio. As much as possible, the kits are designed with eco-friendly materials, ensuring that you not only spread some creative cheer but also contribute positively to the planet. 


Oliveblue’s handmade pieces are influenced by the colours and textures of the Middle and Far East, while remaining relevant to modern European tastes.

Oliveblue Jewellery appeals to every style and budget with each design being completely individual. They use semi-precious gems and gold, with emphasis on colour and individuality.
