The Benzie building is a lovely airey space, it looks a great relaxing place to work in.

I liked the clever details in the beautiful, simplistic stools, lamp shades by Jade Noon, and a salad bowl (with tongs as it’s hanger) from furniture designer Joshua Dodds.

As ever, I was excited to see the Illustration graduates work. Beginning with a fun, illustrated journey, from Kendal to Keswick by Becca Hall, who’s home is in the Lake District. Succulent fruit and foodstuffs from Bethany Thompson certainly drew me in for a closer look.

Ornate irons, thimbles and old ephemera from illustrator Nathalie Izquierdo Collins. A sea tale of wood engravings from Bea Shireen.

Some lovely puppet theatre imagery from Phebe Dwyer and a wealth of talented and charming work, some illustrating Manchester, by Charlotte Cotterill.

Saving the best for last was the work of talented illustrator Steph Coathupe who apparently lives in Manchester with her houseplant called Carrot and drinks far too much tea ! The little girl with the glasses and magnifying glass was a strong favourite for me.
