What's New - Open Studio
We have transformed our work space into an open studio at 1 Denwick View, Alnwick, NE66 2PZ.
Please ring on 07880868377 or 07765577128 to arrange a visit. Or, if you are passing, and the open sign is shown, please feel free to knock on the door. We are lucky enough to work within our home environment apart from walking Red, our Staffy and essential food shopping so there is usually someone in.
You will be the only person in the Studio as the majority of visits are pre planned. There are washing facilities available on entering and leaving the studio.
You can choose your present from either our work or 7 other local artisans.
Alternatively, you can view our and other local artists work on UniquEco Designs Facebook page as well as going to the Alnwick Artisans Facebook page and website to get inspiration for a gift.
We have contactless payment facilities if you wish to use them and are happy to accept cash. We will also deliver locally or post out to you for a small fee.
Please note that at this present time we will not be running mini workshops, but will resume these in the future.
Please continue to support small local businesses like ours.
You can visit us safely whilst also bringing a little sparkle into your or someone else’s life by arranging a personalised visit to a studio that has many unique gifts on offer

Alnwick Artisans are a small group of artists and crafters local to the Alnwick area who initially started displaying their work in a ‘Pop Up’ shop in late 2019.
This venture highlighted that many local residents, let alone visitors to the area, were unaware of their local artists. As the group worked so well together, they wanted to build on the idea of a small craft collective or network to help further promote their own & each other’s work.
The other 2 members are Jenny Allan, Tel 07803254668, an artist from Boulmer and Viv Dykes, Tel 07564 229435 an artist from Alnmouth. Both have studios & are happy to receive visitors. For further information on Alnwick Artisans visit: website www.alnwickartisans.co.uk, Facebook

Based in Alnwick, Becky started creating her UniquEco Planters in 2012. Every stage of their creation is by hand giving each piece its own unique colours and character.
Due to other joint ventures Becky now only makes Planters for Alnmouth Arts Festival or for commissions.
Ivor has re-started his work with glass in late 2013 creating sun catchers, mirrors and other products.
Since early 2014 Becky and Ivor have combined their skills to create individual pieces of original art, wall hangings & Wishsticks & numerous other projects (see the Joint Ventures page).
In late 2019 Bethany, aged 15 years, started to make her own soaps. Beth creates soaps using the 'melt and pour' method, blending essential oils into the soap, with some soaps being felted (see Beths soaps page).
If you would like something that is not shown, please challenge us to rise to the occasion.
Our small venture offers a friendly trade service throughout the year. We are continually updating and adding to our product range by natural development and in response to customer requests. All items are available at keen prices and are carefully packed to ensure they reach their destination in perfect condition.
