newton & maggs
newton & mags will have an array of beautifully made aprons, bags and cushions. With an eye for beautiful textiles the pieces are made with vintage cloth and reused fabrics often with earthy tones and bold patterns.
Sheila’s work features enamel on 18ct gold and silver with fine gold wire and gold leaf.
Enamel colours are curated with semi-precious beads and stones to produce collections of brooches, necklaces, earrings and cufflinks.
Some pieces are finely engraved and enamelled, others are bold and painterly, using transparent enamels with bright opaque colours and subtle fine gold details.
Most of the work incorporates traditional jewellery and enamelling techniques.
Sheila is a Freeman of the Goldsmiths’ Company and is also a short course tutor at West Dean College, Chichester and Cambridge Art Makers.
Rosemary will display textile, print and jewellery pieces for children, homes and adornment. She has been making things ever since she can remember. Never comfortable settling into any one particular craft she explores re-purposing a variety of materials with a diversity of techniques from many disciplines.
My Jewellery is inspired by the shapes natural to this world, such as the leaves, spirals and curves that we see about us. I love to form something that never existed before and find excitement in capturing ideas in silver, copper and brass. I hope that people wearing my jewellery will enjoy it and smile when they wear it.
As the administrator for Cambridge Art Makers I have a great opportunity to try out many different arts and crafts. I love working with my hands, creating and making. From upcycled jewellery and bags to prints, I love exploring fabric designs and have made tea towels and scarves with my watercolour designs I created on Janet Edwards class.
I am fascinated by mixed media and making something out of unusual materials. The whole idea of making something pleasing to look at from scraps and or things that would normally be thrown away is wonderful. I like trees, organic shapes and using shades of the same colour to decorate. Its just fun!
I paint on paper in watercolour and gouache with occasional lapses onto canvas. My painting is somewhat representational but of course not literal as I am more preoccupied with both line and colour. I am still teaching my one day courses but now here at Cambridge Art Makers rather than at home in my studio.
Jenny creates beautiful cards from pressed flowers and torn papers. She will also have a collection of needle felted bird brooches.
Clare Gray, owner and designer at Clare Gray Designs, works with a variety of printmaking, mixed media and digital media to produce bespoke stationery and signage for weddings and special events, as well as designing a range of greetings cards and original framed prints. Her work, though often appearing abstract in it’s final form, is always based on observational drawing and sketches in the initial stages, often featuring a modern calligraphy or foiled element for that extra luxurious feel.
Elia is a Bespoke jewellery maker and designer, engraver and stonesetter who trained in Florence, Italy where he has been working for about ten years.

Due to being closed for much of last year we have lots of courses scheduled for July 2021, therefore we're not yet sure which weekends we may be open!
