How we're supporting British makers
We’re proud champions of heritage craft skills and promote UK makers through our Artisan and Craft retail collection. From established makers to emerging artists, we’ve worked with some of the best craftspeople in the UK.
Open Call Competition
Every year we introduce a new maker to our shops through our Open Call Competition.
Working in partnership with the Crafts Council, we choose a talented maker to create a collection inspired by special places we care for.
The selected artist works with us to develop a range of handmade products exclusively for us. Every product bears the fingerprint of their maker and is rooted in the places that inspired them.
Inspired by Wicken Fen
Last year we chose glassblower, Stewart Hearn as our Open Call winner. A master craftsman, Stewart created an exclusive collection of glassworks.
Featuring colours and patterns inspired by the Fenland we care for in Cambridgeshire, every piece is hand-blown in Stewart’s studio.
