Oaken Moon Shop

I am super excited to announce that I have started a new project! Oaken Moon features works by UK artists and makers alongside ethically sourced artisan crafts and gifts which I have carefully curated to have a shared sensibility with paganism, spirituality and a deeper connection to nature. 

Apart from the brilliant artworks by artists such as Ella Johnston, Holly Trill, Lauren Kelly and Louise Lily King, I have selected some really beautiful and ethically sourced items which I hope you will like too. Among my favourites are the stunning jewellery designs by award winning artist and author Coralie Bickford-Smith. This jewellery has been made in collaboration with Just Trade UK, this lovely company works with Fair Trade projects in Ecuador, India, Peru and Vietnam. There are many unique gifts too, many have been hand made using artisan skills including fairly traded wooden printing blocks and hand carved stone incense holders and trinket boxes. There are plenty of gorgeous greetings cards many of which have been printed on FSC card stock, using vegetable based inks with recycled envelopes and packaged in compostable cello. As well as ethically sourcing items the eco credentials are important to me too, and I have searched around to find these.

I have started to create more of my own artwork too, there are a few Monotype prints that I previously made and I will be featuring more in the Oaken Moon shop very soon. When I can, I will be out and about at events so watch this space and I will post to keep you updated. 

Made in Colchester Collective

I’ve been busy founding the Made in Colchester Collective. We are now a 20+ strong collective of makers, artists and designers based in the Colchester Area. Our first big event will be at Colchester Arts Centre on 4th July where we will all be selling handmade wares, plus our member Caroline Rhys-Lewis will be running a pop up cafe and there will be live acoustic music and art/craft workshops all day! More info to follow soon!

Meanwhile we are attending the fantastic regular monthly Bazaar at The Waiting Room with a small collective pitch (first Sunday of the month).
