Christmas Gift Guide – Edition One

Welcome to our Christmas Gift Guide 2013.

This year, to make your festive shopping a little easier, we’ve taken a good long look at all the lovely things we have here at the gallery and selected 6 of the best of our textiles, jewellery, ceramics and paper collections. Each guide offers 6 unique makers, a variety of ideas and style, and most importantly, a range of prices. Each week we’ll be homing in on one of our most popular departments to bring you a cream-of-the-crop selection. All you need to do is decide who to buy them for!

Inked and Folded: 6 of the best from our Paper selection

Our paper collection comes in many forms – from beautifully hand printed pictures, to hand bound books and contemporary paper cutting. What they all have in common is unique, quirky style and an affordable price tag. From just £4.20 there is definitely something for everyone here….

Contemporary Papercutting by Rosie Scott-Massie £125 – £475

Rosie’s work is highly unusual, combining expressive use of paint with precise paper cutting techniques. Each piece is made from an old OS map which features the subject of the picture.

For a really personal gift we have these lovely handmade notebooks by paper artist Elizabeth Shorrock. Each one is covered with a real OS map of Yorkshire, so perfect for someone who lives on the map! Contact us if you would like to order a specific location.

Murmuration, ecthing by Janis Goodman

Etchings by Janis Goodman £60 – £130
Based in Leeds, Janis’ original prints are inspired by both urban and countryside everyday life, in particular plants and birds. The etchings are limited edition, and are all hand printed, meaning that there is sometimes a slight difference in the look of each one.

Lampshades by Lush Designs and Hannah Nunn £18 – £100

We couldn’t possibly choose which of our lovely lampshades we preferred so we decided to include them both in the gift guide! Lush designs create quirky, funny and gorgeous drawings which are then turned into eye catching lampshades. We have an ever changing selection of their shades in stock, so enquire with us for our current collection. Hannah Nunn is based in Hebden Bridge and combines paper cutting with lighting to make her stunning nature-inspired shades (pictured) and tea light holders.
