New designers

People I loved because of their techniques and processes to make quirky products and niffty things.

Caitlin Beaver- Screen and digitally printed fabrics inspired by birds. Lynette Miller- Dyed fabric and yarns using dye produced from indigenous plants that grow and her home and insects that inhabit them. Sue turnton- Laser etched wood. Flora Hope- Creates fashion, textiles and accessories using traditional techniques alongside the concept of upcycling. Natalie Cole- Surface design including book binding and hand-cut techniques. Laura Higgins- Creates hand-cut/textured wallpaper. I love the ideas and textural techniques she uses. Sarah Matthews- Creates a selection of waterproof and tear-proof paper jewellery inspired by flight. The collection includes printed, pleated and folded neck pieces.
