We are delighted to be opening the Fairhurst Christmas Shop with a stunning array of gift ideas. The shop will be open on November 9th through to January 25th, do come along to support the artists and makers who we are proud to have on display:

Bella Singleton – Based in Norfolk, Bella’s designs focus on botanical images with a graphic edge of geometrics and unusual shapes. With colours that pop and patterns that draw attention, Bella’s collections are stocked in the Tate Modern, Young British Designers and Truffle Clothing alongside others.

Gawain Godwin – is a painter and printmaker, who is interested in the exploration of alternative or imagined worlds. Gawain studied Critical Fine Art Practice at Brighton University and Fine Art Painting at Norwich University of the Arts. He lives in Norwich, working for Norfolk Museum Service and making paintings at Dove Street Studios.

Nina Mae Fowler – Known for her sumptuously detailed large-scale drawings and installations, Nina’s work interrogates themes of celebrity, beauty and power. She designed these brooches along the theme of LOVE, hand-made and screen printed in Norwich, each one is signed and dated by the artist.

Band of Starlings – Geometric shapes and forms are combined to create Rosie Nolan’s jewellery.  A minimalistic approach is taken using clean lines and a reduced colour palette. All of the pieces are handcrafted by the designer at her home-studio in Wanstead, East London.

Tom Jones Woodworker – Fun and functional kitchenware hand carved in Norwich.

Marion Stuart – The Japanese roots of ceramics are embedded in Marion’s use of porcelain – the imperfect perfect. Castaway bottles made to represent the discarded, based on her own collection of vintage bottles. Marion studied a BA in Fine Art Ceramics in Bretton Hall West Yorkshire.

Printer Johnson – is a paper goods brand and trading name of illustrator and printmaker Vicki Johnson. Inspired by nature, folklore and pattern Vicki designs colourful illustrations with a nostalgic feel from her studio in Norwich.

Oliver Bedeman – Oliver Bedeman is a figurative painter based in Oxfordshire, whose work shifts between familial and imagined portraiture. Oliver has exhibited regularly in prestigious painting competitions including the BP Portrait award, Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize, the Threadneedle Prize, and won the Lady Rothermere award for his work at the Royal Drawing School.

Keron Beattie – Keron uses found and recycled objects which he works by hand using traditional tools and techniques. He is interested in the passing of time recorded in the objects themselves, and through his interventions. He has a BA (Hons) Degree in Contemporary Art and Design (2016) and a MA Fine Art with Distinction (2018) from Norwich University of the Arts.
