With Christmas fast approaching, our QEST Scholars have crafted some beautiful pieces that would make a great gift for friends and family under the tree.


A 2021 QEST Scholar, Rosie is a lithographer & Illustrator based in Norfolk. This Christmas she has made lithographed, vintage silk face masks that are a great stocking filler. The design is lithographed in linseed-oil based inks and the batting is made from cotton. Rosie is also selling silk wall hangings.


Hannah is a mosaic artist and a 2009 QEST Scholar from East Sussex. This Christmas she has made cufflinks out of vintage China plates - every pair is unique. Hannah has also created pendants and keyrings that would make a lovely gift.


Scott has handblown traditional glass baubles for the Christmas tree. These delicate round glass baubles were made by Scott in County Antrim in Northern Ireland. A 2013 QEST Scholar, Scott specialises in Venetian cane techniques.


QEST Scholars Abigail Booth (textiles and painting) and Max Bainbridge (woodturning) have produced a Christmas collection, with beautiful vessels and paintings for sale through their business Forest & Found.

10% of the profits of each sale will be donated to the humanitarian aid charity Choose Love.


Stained glass artist and 2019 QEST Scholar Helen Brough has released new prints which would make a great addition to a lounge or dining area. Helen's archival inks prints are framed and have been printed on Hahnemuhle German etching paper.


Glassmaker and 2019 QEST Scholar Joanna Manousis has created a range of glass jewellery available for the Christmas season.

She has made earrings, brooches and necklaces made of gems and minerals that are laminated within glass and contour cut and polished. The pieces are then set in fine silver like real jewels - some have real gems integrated to create a push and pull between the real and the illusionary.


Sporran maker and 2022 QEST Scholar Monty Lewis has released a range of knitted ties, woven belts, Scottish Bonnets and garters this Christmas. His belts are made from quality braid and cast brass buckles.
