 Simon Childs Simon’s digital creations are unbelievably impressive. The original colourful and geometric prints are mounted on a metal backing and then a specialised type of coating is applied to provide a must  see and amazing explosion of depth and magical qualities ~ “mesmerising”.

Gill Paterson Gill when not teaching devotes her time to her studio where she expertly paints  a variety of wonderful subjects in watercolour and acrylics.

Christina Bishop    ‘Egg craft’  Christina makes beautiful decorated eggs. Starting with duck, goose, swan and ostrich egg’s etc they are carefully cut and crafted into a variety of methods and shapes then painted and decorated with hand made flowers. The fine detail is enhanced with decorative ribbons and beads etc. Christina takes commissions and can make the perfect gift for a range of different uses such as jewellery, weddings, displays etc. 

Duffs of London The stones used in these exquisite pieces were individually selected by Dee in Sri Lanka, each stone is then either hand or laser cut. Once polished  the gems are mounted to form bracelets, bangles, rings, necklaces or ear-rings.

Robert Bishop RPT There are those that turn wood and then there are wood turners. Robert is a wood turner that creates beautiful one off pieces that are often more art form than turning. His stunning work is included in collections worldwide as well as the UK. These special pieces are inspirational and more often than not dictated by the individual wood as opposed to any initial pre conceived ideas. These are indeed special skills that endorse the Kraftinwood logo ethos ~  ’Turning trees into treasure’.
