The New Village Fete went off with a bang in Liverpool last weekend!
Liverpool's creatives came together for a day of music, craft stalls and a jolly good time! The event saw over 1000 people through its doors and all in all was a huge success for everyone there on the day. Thank you to all that came down and supported, see you next time!

I am very excited to announce that I am the newest member of the Craft Mafia Nottingham!!
The Nottingham Craft Mafia is part of the larger Craft Mafia familia founded in Austin, Texas. The Craft Mafia serves as a model for independent business owners to assemble with other like-minded folk in their own communities to amplify their vision through the power of a collective.

I'm pleased to announce that I am the winner of the "Birds" T-shirt design competition!

- Gemma Latimer
- Inspired by Circuses, Victoriana, and Surrealism I create collage’s combining the past and present through a mixture of found imagery, illustration, photography and drawing. Working with collage and my trusted photocopier I create all of my work by hand, frequenting second hand shops, car boot sales and markets to build up my ever growing archive of second hand books, magazines, photographs and postcards. I always create my work by hand, only using a computer for layout at final stages. I like my illustration to have a certain tangibility, a quality that cannot be captured by digital means alone, even if that is as small as a blob of ink or a smudge on a photocopy.
