Joan Longley is a botanical artist who uses mainly coloured pencils to create her designs of flowers, birds, and insects; in fact anything you may see in a garden. She attempts to draw as close to reality as she can possibly achieve. She uses coloured pencil as her main medium because she finds it gives her a good depth of colour, occasionally she also uses watercolour. She transfers her drawings to greeting cards, gift wrap, gift tags, cotton shopping bags, tee shirts, and calendars. This is an enjoyable and inexpensive way of sharing her work with other people. She also draws pet portraits using pastels or coloured pencils, using photographs provided by devoted pet owners.
Joan has been with CCFM at Herne Hill since it started in July 2012 when she was 76 years old, so she is possibly the oldest stall holder there!
More Jewellery is run by two Silversmith students Elisabeth and Patricia.
On their stall you will find rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings, cuff links and brooches, all individually designed and handmade. Each piece is unique. The materials are principally silver and also include precious and semi-precious stones.
Elisabeth and Patricia are happy to take commissions.
Tribe Life Creations – Handcrafted creations where ancient survival meets modern art.
Local family organisation Elite Transformations have been handcrafting and selling their creations for the past 3 years. Using locally collected wood from the forests of North London and recycling materials wherever possible, their handcrafted creations which include chess sets, staffs, statues and copper and crystal jewellery, all draw inspiration from many ancient cultures transformed for a new generation. If you come to visit them at the market remember to check out their totem pole in the grounds of Alexandra Palace.
