We Make It! - Maker of the day Autumn Jitters!

The people who Make It....

First, some words by Gemma from Autumn Jitters

"under a cloudy sky...

...birds shook the dew from their wings, and pulled on their capes... foxes called to each other in the night, spreading the news that spring was about to arrive... and slowly, in the warmth of the rising sun... autumn jitters woke from the sleep of a capped pen..."

For those of you who regularly join us for the monthly celebration that is Handmade Arcade, you will probably recognise Devon based Gemma's nature inspired illustrations which feature star-lit sky's, tree canopy's and super-hero birds, Gemma's illustrations are available as badges, prints, cards and notebooks and she's also available for commissioned work! 

Gemma is a wanderer/explorer/adventurer who loves to work with dead leaves, brown paper, wool fibres and paper pulp, she can often be found drawing, on a beach in Devon or on the moor. She has a love of foxes, owls, star-lit skies and mint chocolate. You can see more from Autumn Jitters on her facebook page and she also has an etsy shop for fans from further afield!

We're pretty excited to say that Autumn Jitters will be joining us once again  at The Handmade Arcade First Birthday Party on the 6th April!
Join our event page to keep updated, bring a friend and come on down!
For May's Handmade Arcade we're planning a "May The 4th Be With You" day! 
If you're interested in applying for a table, we're seeking makers of small press, illustrators and comic artists to join us... email handmade arcade@hotmail.co.uk with some snaps of your wares!

Wrap up warm in scarves and gloves but allow the sun to warm each strand of hair upon your head, spring is playing with the rooftops today.....
