There's all sorts of interesting things that people are doing and below are a selection of artists and makers that I can personally recommend. They are all fantastic at what they do - check them out!
Slim Ross - Custom Leather Work and Courses
Slim is a very talented leather carver who hails from New Zealand but is now based here in Sheffield. He sells one off pieces as well as custom work and leather working courses.
Huw restores old vintage razors back to mint condition and sells them to raise money for a Food Bank and other charities. If you like a sharp shave this is the man to go to!
My old friend Henk is a very talented craftsman with a keen eye for beauty. If you've got great taste try to enrich your home with one of his pieces!
If you ever see a chef with a tattoo of a Ferraby knife on his forearm take a look as this was the work of world class artist and all round lovely guy Max (who also has the best mustache!).
Zed is a great guy who makes YouTube videos on a a whole load of outdoor skills. He travels around meeting the experts and making short 'how to' videos. If you've ever fancied learning how to carve a spoon, use a pole lathe or any other bushcraft skill have a look at his YouTube site to be inspired.
