Annette Rolston and Mike Fenton
Interiors & fashion: Lampshades, cushions and scarves all handprinted using lino blocks, silk screen prints on paper
Annette Rolston and Mike Fenton are a partnership of gifted artists whose work is handmade from start to finish. They draw, paint and design all their own imagery, creating hand carved linocuts which are used to make lampshades, cushions, scarves and limited edition prints.
When commissioning a lampshade or cushion the customer can choose which motifs, colours, and size. Individual motifs can be commissioned too, and Mike can expertly carve a portrait in lino to put on a lampshade or cushion, as well as draw and paint people and pets.
Members of the Suffolk Craft Society they are also founder members of designermakers21, a craft collective based in Diss, Norfolk where their studio is based. They are also featured artisan makers in a new high street outlet Lavenham Upholstery.
