Sally Hampson in the Hole & Corner Magazine article
“Gloucestershire offers a treasure trove of independent makers, all operating out of their own ‘hole-and-corners’. Take the brilliantly named traditional upholsterer Marcus Spencer – not to be confused with the high street retailer. Also not to be confused with Marcus Walters, a graphic and product designer who has done an interiors range for Heals amongst others, and whose wife Hayley is a hand-screenprinter, with a studio based in a photogenic old mill building.
The area seems to over-index on brilliant hand-printed wallpapers – you might recognise James Randolph Rogers’ designs from The Golden Fleece on Nelson Street in Stroud, while Juliette Chadwick (wife of YBA-set sculptor Daniel Chadwick) is another to track down.
Isabel Lyster, meanwhile, is a young, cool puppet maker/artist who lives in a yurt… Hole & Corner enough for you?”
