In our regular Meet The Maker feature we chat with Sheffield linocut print maker Benjamin Partridge from The Owlery! A special needs teacher by day, Benjamin spends his evenings making wonderful woodland prints and accessories with his own hand carved stamps. We asked him what he loves about being part of the vibrant Northern craft scene.
Welcome to our first post in a new section we call Pretty Nice Places. We aim to bring you all those hidden crafty places throughout the north, and showcase the wonderful people behind them. This post focusses on the beautiful Manchester Craft & Design Centre.
Last weekend Leeds Corn Exchange was host to the annual Showcase Spectacular. Pretty Nice went along to speak to the creative talent showing off their stuff, as well as finding a few indie treasures for Christmas.
