Glassy Bird Art

Hi, I’m Laura, the maker behind Glassy Bird Art. I’m a stained glass artist and mostly create sun catchers and wall art inspired by nature and my natural surroundings here in rural Wales. I use a variety of vibrant opal, translucent and iridescent glass. Each glass sheet varies in texture and appearance, making every finished product unique. Most of my work is made to order and I’m also open to discussing ideas for commissions.


Jin Ceiriog

We have combined our love of adventure in the great outdoors with our love of gin, to create the Jin Ceiriog Distillery Co, a small-batch gin distillery inspired by the wonderful landscapes of the Ceiriog Valley and beyond.
‘Jin’ means gin in Welsh – we are both Welsh and proud of our heritage, the beauty of the north Wales landscape, and all that it has to offer – the mountains and lakes of Snowdonia are down the road, and on our doorstep, the Ceiriog Valley is full of aqueducts & viaducts, rivers, waterfalls, hills, valleys, quarries and castles.
From the very beginning of our gin journey, our purpose has been clear – to make a Welsh Dry Gin full of natural botanical flavour, that is inspired by and rooted to the landscape in which we are based, and which we love to explore.
Our gin is meant to be enjoyed after your day or weekend of adventures – wild camping under the stars, hiking or climbing on a cold and frosty winter’s day, canoeing down the river or on the mountain lakes – whatever you do to unwind. It’s the gin you deserve after an adventurous day in the great outdoors.

You won’t find our gin in the supermarket or in large pub and restaurant chains – our stockists are small and exclusive and work with only the very best local producers of food and drink.

Brombles

Hi, I’m Alex. Having studied Fine Art and being brought up in Pembrokeshire I have always been greatly influenced by the coast and nature. I either create items one at a time, or in small batches with care and attention to detail with every piece to ensure the finished product is always to a high standard.

I use natural materials where possible and I always try to use either organic cotton that enables farmers to grow crops and rear animals and that is also woven in GOTS certified mills resulting in a fairer wage for workers and no child or forced labour, or, cotton that comes from more sustainable sources. This means it is either partly recycled, grown with less water, or fertilisers and pesticides, while also increasing profits for the farmers growing it. I also use the fabric offcuts as stuffing for some of my items to reduce waste and I am aiming to move towards more environmentally friendly packaging throughout all my products. Once I have used up all my old packaging I will always use the new alternatives I have started to introduce, such as re-using cardboard boxes where possible, using recycled Kraft card for wraps and using biodegradable/compostable bags and Kraft tape.

All items are hand-made to order so please allow 14-18 days for items to be despatched. I aim to fulfill orders as soon as possible, so many orders will be ready sooner than this, however, if you do require items sooner than this, by a set date, please contact me prior to ordering to check that I can fulfill your requirements.

From legendary classics to modern favourites we’ve got a beer for everyone and every occasion, all freshly brewed at our brand new state-of-the-art Dragon Brewery.

Brains was founded in 1882 when Samuel Arthur Brain bought the Old Brewery on St Mary Street, Cardiff, along with his uncle Joseph Benjamin Brain.

Holly Francesca is a husband and wife team based in West Yorkshire. Holly got lost in Kew Gardens, London, back in 2012 and had to look at the visitor’s map to see where to go and this sparked the idea to create illustrated maps.

Holly draws the key locations that make each place so special. They love hearing your stories of the memories you have, made in all of these wonderful places. Holly has personalised many maps for weddings and those important milestones; first homes, new-borns and engagements.

All designs are created from Holly’s original hand drawings, then edited in design software. Holly studied BA Applied Arts this is when she met her husband Elliot at university. Elliot studied Business Studies and they always knew they wanted to work together on a business venture one day.

Holly and Elliot have since grown the collection of art prints to include skylines of the great cities of the world. And through lockdown Holly spent a lot of time walking and enjoyed painting outside, this led to a new range of travel posters. The aim is to give people something truly unique and special that it feels it has been especially made for you.

Coediog Carving

Coediog was created by Mike Davies in mid-2018 to showcase his hand-carved wooden spoons and pendants.

Other than commissions my works are influenced by nature and myths and legends. A former Welsh guardsman, I started carving as a form of relaxation and soon got hooked.
I believe in ‘practicing what I preach’ and make every effort to reuse, recycle, reclaim and up-cycle materials for my work. I use only responsibly-sourced wood for projects and do not harvest living wood, but instead rely on wood that is gifted in some way – often from storm-damage, drift wood, dead-fall and sometimes other people’s prunings. All items are hand carved in Dyserth using a hatchet and a variety of knives and palm chisels.

I’m always happy to discuss commissions and to work with you to create a special and unique item.

Beeswax Fabric Wraps

Sally started making beeswax wraps, as a plastic-free alternative to clingfilm, at home on Anglesey to help reduce her own plastic use. When she realised how good they were she turned her hobby into a successful business!

Her reusable food wraps are sticky, but not sticky to the touch and form a great seal to keep your food really fresh. They are easy to clean and will last up to a year.

If you haven’t used wax wraps before, they are great for keeping so many foods fresh, like cheese, avocado halves, sandwiches. You can find their top 8 uses here.

You can also buy kits to make your own wraps. All the packaging for the wraps and the kits is bilingual.
She has a vegan-friendly option made from plant waxes and a range of wax wraps made from organic cotton.
Sling the cling and switch to the best beeswax wraps!

Shroot – Greens & Greetings

Shroot is a new company based in Penarth, Wales, selling gifts and greetings to sow and grow.

We (Jude Cook and Carolyn Davies) launched Shroot with Greens & Greetings in January 2021. They’re a greeting card, envelope and stand-up plant pot in one, containing everything the recipient needs to grow delicious and nutritious microgreens. There are currently 6 designs available, and there’s room on the back of the greeting to write a personal message. They’re a unique alternative to birthday cards, or just to show you care, any day of the year, and they can be posted anywhere in the UK.

The idea for Greens & Greetings came about during the first lockdown when Jude decided to try windowsill gardening. She discovered the joys of microgreens – so quick and easy to grow. Jude wanted a way of sharing her lockdown hobby with friends. We couldn’t go anywhere or see anyone - so coming up with a way to reach out to people actually became a business opportunity.  

Greens & Greetings are available to order via our website, and we’re also branching out and selling to retail stores, so hopefully we’ll be in a shop near you soon.

Vest & Armour Fancy T-Shirts

Hi, I’m Lindsay. Vest & Armour is my lockdown business venture. I’m a Welsh costume designer working in TV, and due to lockdown and home-schooling my two boys, I had an extended pause in my professional work.

The idea for ‘dressing-up style’ t-shirts came from a children’s TV show I designed years ago, coupled with one of my boys refusing to wear a fancy dress costume to a theme day at school! I ended up making him a painted t-shirt to fit the theme and he was happy to wear familiar clothes and he still felt part of the day.

I did some t-shirt printing courses at The Printhaus in Canton to develop my ideas, and they now hand screen print all my stock for me.

Every design is original and hand drawn by me. I try to keep print runs short, so you know you have a limited edition t-shirt!

All my packaging is plastic-free, recycled, recyclable and compostable. I’ve also now moved over to using 100% organic cotton t-shirts from a Fair Wear Foundation and PETA approved company.

Hathren Brownies and Bakes

Hi, I’m Meinir, a part-time teacher and mother-of-three sharing uniquely delicious brownies and bakes from the heart of west Wales. I’ve been baking Brownies for the past eight years.

Friends and family go crazy for them… so we made them available online.

I make these delicious bakes at home in our Welsh farmhouse, baked fresh and to order, by hand, in small batches with carefully sourced ingredients.

As the daughter of a dairy and sheep farmer, I’ve appreciated the importance of great-tasting food, not always healthy, but comforting and tasty, enough to help you endure the elements. Shearing day was the highlight of the year with all the local farm wives competing with their bakes.

The name Hathren derives from a stream that flows through Cwmann, the village where I live and joins the Teifi near the Ceredigion and Carmarthenshire border.

We’re hoping to add a tap room, brewing experiences, as well as extending our range at the shop to include other Welsh microbreweries’ beer and local gins.

Hi, my name’s Siwan and about a year ago I started selling my digital artwork. Over the past year my Etsy shop has been growing, and I’ve released several products. My most popular products are unframed prints that come in sizes A5, A4, A3 and A2 and I also sell cards. I draw landscapes, architecture and people, and do one-off commissions too! Please feel free to contact me for any information! You can email me at [email protected]


Miss Marple Makes

Hi, I’m Cath, half-Yorkshire, half-Danish and living on Anglesey after meeting my husband in north Wales.

I love bright colours and creating things. Started Miss Marple Makes 10 years ago, making hand-made, hand-painted porcelain gifts, including decorations, badges, pendants, earrings, small figures and wall hangings.

Fun, illustrative, happy work that is ever evolving to keep it fresh.

Tŷ Winsh Cafe

You can find us down on Victoria Dock in Caernarfon, next to the Boatyard. The building originally used to house the oldest patented Winch in Britain. It is a lovely stone building with thick wooden beams and high ceilings.

We are a husband and wife team with two staff members and cater for 26 covers inside and 4 outside (weather permitting!) Would be more if Covid hadn’t reared its ugly head!

We provide freshly-cooked food to order, such as avocado on toast, eggs benedict, Welsh rarebit, as well as home-baked cakes like scones, Welsh cakes, bara brith etc. We have locally-roasted Poblado coffee and speciality Welsh brew teas.

85% of Caernarfon’s population speak Welsh as their first language and visitors love sitting and listening to the locals chat over a cuppa at our cafe.

During the pandemic we were providing takeaway afternoon teas to keep afloat whilst we waited to reopen our doors, and they are still popular today. We are now also offering them inside the cafe at weekends. Bookings advisable. Call 07810 572168.


Frango

Inspired by Portuguese family traditions and recipes passed down through generations, we specialise in creating juicy, spicy and flavourful chicken. Our chicken is marinated in our secret sauce for 24 hours and then charcoal-grilled over open flames for authentic char and spice. Vegan options are also available.

Our Portuguese chicken takeaway is new to Uplands, Swansea. You can order your takeaway online or through the Frango app for 20% off your first order.

Hi, I’m Nerys, offering quirky, fun jewellery for you and your dog, hand-made with love in my Pembrokeshire home.
