Welcome to another week at the PCG.
Buying handmade is so much more than getting something extra special for yourself or your loved ones. Each purchase that you make is created with the time, energy, experience and love of it’s creator. Our Guild Members ARE their businesses.
Each item sold means something to them, it has the experience of it’s creation and also provides them with the opportunity to go on making and selling the things that they love.
So when you do your shopping this Christmas go that extra mile and help small businesses and creators while getting a gift that is so much more…
Take a wander through the virtual streets of our Christmas Village HERE and visit our members.
Meet seven more of our fabulous Guild Members:

Flights of Fantasy
Flights-of-fantasy is all about colour – soft pastels, brights, neon hues, monochrome and gentle colours from nature
I work primarily in felt, making beautiful flower corsages and brooches, necklaces, bracelets, bags and scarves. I also use upcycled/recycled and vintage fabrics to create coiled fabric baskets.
Coffee Tea & Beads
Lappelli Enamel Studio is run by Teresa Kent. Teresa is best known for her enamelled bowls; she works with vitreous enamel glass applied to copper and fused in a kiln.
Her work is organic and uses the interaction of the hot enamel and the copper itself, by pushing the boundaries of this medium she achieves effects that means no two bowls are ever the same.
Enamelling on copper rather than silver is a growing medium and Teresa is continually trying out new combinations of colour and temperature.
Functionality is as essential as beauty and form, so many of the pieces have the potential for different uses, simply an ornament or perhaps a dish for bits and bobs. Her jewellery often has a reversible side or the ability to be worn in several ways.
Teresa is a member of British Society of Enamellers and is an Associate Craftsman with the Guild of Enamellers, and a member of The Worcestershire Guild of Contemporary Craft. Currently she works and teaches from her workshop in the small village of Blackwell in Worcestershire.
