refelt re.worked re.cycled
refelt is a concept developed by Hala Zaluczkowska, involving the reworking and recycling fashion and textiles. Quality fashion items such as coats; suits; hats and accessories are collected and worked on to create an individual and tailored item. Textiles are recycled to make tactile blankets and throws and furnishings with a bespoke offer. Each item is considered individually to create re-loved, re-worked pieces for a contemporary market. Felt is incorporated into both fashion and textile items.

My name is Lorna Speight and I have been making jewellery professionally for over 26 years. I hand make semi-precious bead earrings, bracelets and necklaces. I am particularly fascinated by the varying shapes and colours of beads and I try to reflect this interest in the jewellery I make.
My aim is to make a wide range of fabulous jewellery in a huge variety of colours and a selection of styles. Each piece of jewellery is handmade by myself and I hand-pick all the beads to ensure high quality throughout the range

The Old Bath House, which lies less than a mile from the beautiful sweep of Druridge bay, is all that remains of Broomhill Colliery which closed in the 1960s. After a long shift underground, thousands of miners filthy with grime and coal dust would return to the Bath House for a well earned shower, and it remains now as the last monument to this mining heritage.
Whilst retaining much of its original character, the building has now been developed to house a series of gallery, workshop and studio spaces in which a number of local artists and craftspeople, mostly women, have turned this former industrial site into a must-see destination for art lovers in the region.
With a full programme of events, exhibitions and workshops available, along with ample parking and coffee and cake, The Old Bath House offers a unique opportunity for visitors to buy or get involved with art in Northumberland.
