The Littlest Falcon
The Littlest Falcon was founded in 2018 by printmaker Merlyn Griffiths. Using linocut to create her pieces, Merlyn makes prints and greetings cards of animals. Fur and feathers lend themselves so well to linocut, and capturing the personality of an animal in a series of marks is the most rewarding challenge.
After ten years in York (where she still works as a Stained Glass Conservator), Merlyn now resides in Country Durham and produces her prints from her garden studio. Here she is surrounded by inspiration, from the family of foxes behind the house to her snoozing cats on their chair next to her desk.
This is the first time The Littlest Falcon has been exhibited at a Trade Show and we are looking forward to introducing you to the menagerie

Nadege Honey Design 
Nadege creates colourful and quirky jewellery in polymer clay and silver from her studio in Northampton.
From the memories of her childhood holidays spent in Brittany, which gave birth to her distinctive 'BRETON' collection, to her love of classic design of various eras, she creates pieces where colour, pattern and texture are centre stage. Fascinated by the mid-century and Art Deco styles in particular, some elements of these periods are often echoed in her work.
Sketching a new design and mixing the clay to obtain the exact shade she is after, are two of her favourite steps in the process of creating jewellery. Nadege make every piece by hand with a focus on quality and attention to detail.

Tweedie Bags 
Tweedie Bags was established in 2010 and since moving to England from Scotland, is developing south of the border.
Katie uses checked Harris Tweed, (a soft, woollen, durable cloth, handwoven in the Outer Hebrides). The brightly coloured and traditional tweed is used to create a beautiful range of bags and purses. There is a range of items for men including glasses cases, whisky flasks (1oz novelty keyring hip flasks and gift boxed 6oz flasks) and silver and bronze effect cufflinks.
These are perfect for the wedding market. Pampered pooches are well catered for too, with an extensive range of collars, leads and accessories.
Come and feel these quality items and feel nostalgic over the heritage from the Highlands and Islands of Scotland that have been lovingly handmade by Katie Jarvis.
