Connell & Hart
Diane Hart and Paul Connell live and work in Northumberland. Making jewellery since 1989 they use a method based on the Pâté de Verre technique involving arranging grains of coloured and clear glass in hand carved moulds and fusing them in a kiln.
Oakwood Soaperie is a small independent business based in the North East. All the soaps are handmade from natural ingredients in small quality-controlled batches using pure plant oils and butters, essential oils and organically grown flowers from within the estate. Ceri also uses raw honey and beeswax from her father’s bees in the range of natural products she makes, as raw honey has naturally soothing and healing properties making it a perfect ingredient in skincare. All the products are suitable for vegetarians and most also suitable for vegans too. They are free from parabens, preservatives, palm oil and mineral oils and suitable for most skin types
The Pure Candle Co.
The Pure Candle Company craft hand-poured 100% soy wax candles in their Northumberland studio, using soy wax and fragrances sourced and created in the UK. The candle fragrances are inspired by nature to calm, soothe and delight your senses and are environmentally friendly in every way.
They use 100% soy wax which is ethically produced from sustainable sources. The candles are clean burning, with no smoking or leftover wax and it’s not just the candles themselves that are environmentally friendly. As soy wax is biodegradable and water soluble, it means the glass containers are easily washable, making them recyclable or reusable - they make perfect drinking glasses!
Carol Nunan is an artist and printmaker. She considers herself extraordinarily lucky to live in a beautiful part of the UK, in the historic market town of Hexham, which is at the heart of Hadrian’s Wall country in Northumberland.
‘I’m inspired by the wide skies and broad landscapes of my adopted home of Northumberland. There is so much rich history here – Hadrian’s Wall and the Romans, Neolithic stones, bronze age and Border Reiver settlements, medieval castles and the shoreline. That is not to forget the wild and rare flora and fauna, the geology of the Whin Sill and last but not least, the spectacular dark skies at night.’

The Wide, Wide Sea
By Anna Wilson, Illustrated by Jenny Løvlie
£6.99, April 2021
When a young child forges a special connection with a seal on a trip to the seaside, their imagination takes them on an unforgettable journey, exploring everything the beach and wide, wide sea have to offer… until suddenly a violent storm blows in. The next morning the beach is ugly and covered in litter. Whose fault is it? Who can fix it?
Lyrical, beautiful and inspirational, this is a story of imagination, of joy in nature, and of a young child’s nascent realisation that plastic pollution is our fault, but that together we can be the solution. It is a subtle and imaginative exploration of how we can protect nature together.
