Crafts Magazine: Jan 2010 January 01 2010
"Cockpit Arts, the London-based incubator for designer-makers, has launched a new award to help an established maker grow their business while developing creatively. The winner will be awarded a studio space in one of Cockpit's buildings at Holborn or Deptford, professional development, and a range of promotional opportunities. The Award is open to those in business for at least three years, with a proven track record. The judges - including designer Bill Amberg - are after an ambitious individual demonstrating entrepreneurial spirit. The award plugs a hole in the sector, says Cockpit executive Vanessa Swann: 'There are many opportunities currently for emerging designer-makers but little help for those trying to accelerate their business."

Launch of recycled notebooks November 02 2009
Ethical fashion Brand Tamasyn Gambell launches a range of recycled notebooks, putting a clever twist on this conventional item.
Taking discarded vintage scarves from a textile unit in Nottingham Tamasyn overprints them in her signature graphic prints and bold colours using water based pigments. Both old and new are united to form a beautiful patterned base, which is used to cover the hardback notebooks. Each notebook is hand bound by a small bookbinder in Essex and is totally unique. Its pages are made from recycled British paper waste at a 100 year old British mill.
The paperback versions are based on old school notebooks. The recycled card covers are screen printed in our studio in one of four of Tamasyn’s main range prints, in a variety of colours. The pages are formed of blank reject colour test sheets from local printers in the Holborn area, and bound by a small bookbinder in London. For a truly individual gift that is packed with charm and an ethical story the notebooks offer a guilt free treat and with the many patterns and colours on offer there is something for everyone! All products are hand printed in Tamasyn’s studio, using organic dyestuffs and chemicals. Small print runs increase the exclusivity of the designs and keep environmental impact to a minimum.
