During the long warm summer of 2014 I visited each of the exhibitors at their place of work. Some of them I'd known for many years, some were new to me. It was a fascinating experience that took me from Cumbria to south London. In August I received a text from my colleague and fellow designer William Warren saying ' Where are you? I can never get hold of you! I've got a picture in my mind of you driving around the country in your little car finding all these brilliant workshops.' And that's exactly what it's been like.

The following sections of this website show each of the makers with a description of my visit and the people I met.
