Daniel Tink – Scenic Norfolk – Norwich - Photographer
Daniel was born in 1981 and has lived in Norwich all his life. Landscape photography for Daniel began as a hobby in 2005, and very quickly became his passion. There is no greater feeling for Daniel than finding himself isolated with nothing but natural surroundings, space and light all around him and capturing that moment forever. His favourite place to photograph is the North Norfolk Coast.
Daniel’s prints can be found worldwide. His work has appeared in national magazines, newspapers, brochures and calendars, and he is proud to have produced the book: ‘Spirit of Norwich’, and co-produced: 'Spirit of Norwich Cathedral', ‘Discover Norfolk’, ‘Norfolk Food Heroes’, ‘The Peddars Way and Norfolk Coast Path’ and due for release late 2019: 'Visitors Historic Britain, Norwich and Norfolk, Stone age to the Great War'.

Amy Todd – Amy Todd Ceramics - Ceramicist - Docking
My Inspiration for my work has derived from my love of the countryside and the treasures within it. My work is individually hand made and no two pieces are the same. I continue to develop and create new pieces of work for my collections every time I pick up my tools.
I graduated from university in 2009 completing my BAHons Degree and have continue to develop my skills. I believe that an artists work is a part of their heart and soul allowing them to create and make something they are passionate about.

Lorraine Cannell – The Bead Queen – North Wootton (Kings Lynn)
I retired as an Operations Manager 16 years ago without any idea what I would like to do with myself. Although Sewing was my forte I was always passionate about fashion and jewellery. One day an 80 year old lady taught me how to make jewellery using seed beads and the craft stuck with me. Later I even taught the craft to others. But after being introduced to a fantastic Bead Merchant my attentions were directed to Organic Gemstones and Freshwater Pearls, and they are without a doubt the love of my life to work with now.

Denise Walmsley - Sewn With Love
I have always been creative. My Mum tells me that I spent many happy hours with a pair of scissors cutting up very small pieces of paper. From there I developed a love of soft toy making watching and helping my Mum and Nan in their endeavours. I was looking for a new adventure in creativity when I came across a book about needle felting in the library and just knew this was the craft for me. I asked for a couple of small kits for my birthday and haven't looked back since. I have now developed a passion for wool in all its forms and enjoy the process of taking a smelly fleece straight from the sheep and turning it into a work of art. All of the pieces I now make incorporate wool that I have washed and carded myself. My philosophy in life to learn something new everyday and with needle felting there is always something new to learn.
Penny Watts, Tuppenny Lane, Bircham
I have had a love of textiles and sewing since childhood continuing through to A Level Needlework – probably unheard of now! My sewing machines have changed over the years but I am still drawn to fabric shops wherever I go both at home and abroad.
Nigel Pigott – Wood Turner - East Winch
I have always enjoyed working with wood, be it in restoring timber in our home, felling trees as part of my work as a gardener, or more recently in creating decorative wooden pieces as gifts or for the home.
I started wood turning a couple of years ago initially making bowls. I am now designing other items such as keyholders and lidded pots as well as adding images to pieces using pyrography. I only use native woods including oak, cherry, beech and sycamore.
Christine Herring – Quilling by Christine - Dereham
I have grown up with quilling as a big part of my life and started learning the craft at an early age. My interest in quilling has developed over the years and I enjoy experimenting with different ideas and exploring different techniques associated with the craft.
Many people are familiar with quilling, particularly on cards. I enjoy trying to show a more modern interpretation of this very old craft. I am an Accredited member of the Quilling Guild and also a member of the North American Quilling Guild, having been placed in a number of their annual competitions over the years.
Tara Witney – Dandelions & Daisies – King’s Lynn
I’ve always been quite a homebody & have enjoyed making items for the home - from pictures, decorations & hand-sewn cushions & soft furnishings, to baking & cookery & more recently, I have undertaken up-cycling/recycling projects, including revamping furniture & household objects. Everything I’ve worked on has always been self-taught & I enjoy the challenge of learning new procedures & crafts & seeing the satisfaction of them coming to fruition, which has recently led me to take up the art of decoupage as well.
My products naturally veer towards having homely, rustic characteristics & as well as making new creations, every-day items are also given a new sense of life. I like to think that the items I make help to contribute into turning somebody’s house into a happier, cosier home.
