Christina Perris Jewellery
Christina Perris graduated as a Goldsmith in 2014 and currently works out of her home studio in Hamilton. Inspired by the simple beauty that she encounters in everyday life, Christina works predominantly in sterling silver to create wearable art. Her style is simple and abstract, handcrafted with the belief that it will evoke positive feelings in those who are lucky enough to wear it.
A Twist of Silver
It is exciting to make sterling silver move into interesting and organic shapes resulting in unique pieces of jewellery. I want my jewellery to move with its’ wearer. It should be a part of them and should complement their style. I love to know that my creations will be worn and enjoyed.

Charlotte & Stewart
charlotte & stewart is a quirky line of handmade dolls and things created by Johanna Chaytor. Each doll is entirely unique, equal parts cute and creepy. Their faces are hand painted with careful attention paid to every detail. The line is diverse and includes zombies, vampires and girly girls.
GirlCanCreate creates one of a kind mixed media collages. Good old fashioned cut and paste collages are created with vintage papers that are whimsical, quirky and humourous art pieces. As an attempt to reuse all paper pieces I use all scraps for pinback buttons and magnets, daily scrap collages, vintage paper packs and itty bitty collage kits to inspire others to create their own collage pieces.
Hand and Shadow
In simplest terms Hand & Shadow is a line of screen-printed garments. The materials used are bleach ink on cotton, these allow subtle variations in texture and colour, the results changing from garment to garment within a series. Conceptually Hand & Shadow is about the subtle tension between the blossom and decay of the natural world, whether it ‘s tangles of hair or dense forest. It celebrates the spaces that aren’t immediately inviting, yet are strangely compelling.

HITOKOO is a line of casual women’s fashion produced in collections that address political and cultural narratives in handmade, limited quantities integrating textile craft elements. Hitoko Okada’s fashion work serves to align collectors and wearers with an expression of their core identities and to drive empowered communications within themselves and with the world around them.
From concept to design; pattern to final product, each piece is hand crafted in her Hamilton based studio. Representational motifs and prints repeated throughout her collections are based on original images generated from hand made stencils through line drawings or paper cut out stencils.
Thea Haines is a textile artist, consultant and designer. She holds an MA in Textile Design from Chelsea College of Art and Design, and an Honours BA in Art and Comparative Literature from McMaster University. She previously studied Textile Design at Sheridan College, was artist-in-residence in the Craft Studio at Harbourfront Centre, and a member of the Contemporary Textile Studio Co-operative. Her studio practice revolves around the use of natural dyes as an aspect of sustainable textile craft production.
Initially trained as a painter, Abena Asomaning went on to discover the world of surface pattern design and printmaking.
She uses a combination of block printing, hand dying, and illustration to produce colourful, hand-sewn wall hangings and pillows from her original fabrics, and limited edition digital prints and cards.
These designs are all made from Abena’s hand drawings and are thoughtful reflections of the rhythms of nature, it’s narratives and humour. Inspired by her Ghanian roots and love of textiles, Abena uses colour and pattern to tell a unique and vibrant story.
