Edith & Blanche

We create lines of children's wear, textile kits and accessories.

Our handmade products are ethically sourced and produced, using organic and natural dyes. 

At Edith and Blanche we aim to provide items that spark joy and are environmentally friendly.

Bespoke Ceramics

I create bespoke ceramics which are made from porcelain.

My work has always been highly influenced by nature and the process of weathering and erosion. I am inspired by texture, from eroded cliffs to weathered battered objects which I have found swept up on the coast.

As an artist I have tried to create weathered and aged textures that you would find outside, and apply them to minimalist forms that you would proudly display inside.


Forest Soaps

Handmade soaps free from palm oil and produced using cold-pressed English rape and hemp seed oil. The ingredients are 100% natural - and so contain no parabens or SLS etc. 

I also produce bath salts made with 100% natural ingredients and scented with essential oils. The jars are glass - not plastic - with a bamboo lid. They can be recycled or reused.

Peter Clayton Wildlife Photography

Wildlife prints, greetings cards, fridge magnets and coasters.

Galina Stasenko

My painting 'Ready to Respond'(see image)is being auctioned to raise money for the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Charity. The painting, featuring helicopters and response vehicles, will be on show at the Fair, with the auction date starting at this event and running until the 15th September.

Cazza's Cards

My name is Carol Mitchell and I have been crafting for over 30 years. I started with cross stitch and knitting and moved on to card making about 15 years ago. I have been doing craft fairs, garden shows and dog shows with my cards all over Essex and just over the border into Suffolk for many years.

I enjoy making cards, and each one is different as I do not do two exactly the same. I enjoy the feedback from customers who contact me afterwards for bespoke order.
