  • Hello! My name is Becky and I have recently started up a new venture called Tentario. We provide giant tipis (think Red Indians!) for weddings, parties and any other form of general merriness! Don’t be fooled, they are not the camping variety. They take over a day to put up, one holds 70 people and two combined together hold 140 people, so if used for camping it would be more of a giant sleep over! Our tipis are a quirky, original alternative for your traditional white marquee and perfect for [...]
  • Silver Lining all started when one day I decided to go for a motorbike ride into Brighton. Being an avid rider and a true passion for Brighton, I headed for Greggs fish & chips along Madeira drive . I was sitting in the sun just chilling and gathering thoughts eating my fish & chips thinking how nice it would be to work in Brighton. So I decided to take a stroll along Madeira Drive, when I stumbled across a gallery/workshop by the name of JAG. Julie Anne Gilbert. I made some enquiries in [...]
  • Nice to meet you! My name is Leon Simmonds and I'm a bit odd - in the most whimsical of ways! I love to get creative but we shall get to that in a second, firstly a little look back ... I am mostly known for being a local Close Up Magician- http://www.leonsimmondsmagic.co.uk/ However, I also have a very creative side and over the past year I have been using the (little!) spare time I have creating jewellery. At first I was only seeing it as a hobby, I love having something to wear that is [...]
  • I would like to considered for the QQW start up programme. I'm a freelance Make Up Artist.  I adore working with materials. I was an exhibitor at the first QQW offering Mini-Makeovers including glitters, feathers, gems and sparkles. Unconventional wedding make-up but fun! Working for QQW this year has given me the confidence to move on to other bridal fairs and to get noticed and some trial bookings and I can't thank Lesley enough. I believe it's important to target everyone out there, [...]
  • My name is Jane Smith I am the owner of Myrtles Bags. www.myrtlesbags.co.uk I have always made things whether it be clothes, bags, or home furnishings. I like things that are different! Or as my husband likes to call it, quirky. This is the whole reason why I do what I do. I have a vision of what I want in my head, I can't get it in the shops so I make it! It really is the only way to get exactly what you want. I like to think I can do Quaint, Queer and Weird with a little bit of Quirky [...]
  • Start Up Initiative Programme Entry 1 - Jean Matthews Please see below on Jean's stunning entry to our Initiative Programme: "My name is Jean Matthews. My Facebook name is Virginia Kreeper and my 'artist' name is Miss Winters. I have always been a creative individual, creative in the sense that my imagination is wild and I am the biggest day dreamer known to mankind. I never tried to create anything until only recently. I suffer from depression and the past two years of my life due to t [...]
