Welcome to the following NEW Bristol Creatives Gold Members:

Camille Aubry is a French freelance illustrator and graphic novel artist based in Bristol and working between the UK and France. Before graduating with an MA Illustration from Camberwell College of Arts Camille studied architecture and this has always influenced her artwork. Her practice is deeply rooted in the subject of urbanity and human interaction with the built environment. She uses illustration and graphic novel art, in two or three dimensions, to document her observations of everyday life, where the urban landscape is either the subject or the background of her creations.

Pennywell Studios is a warm, bright, converted warehouse less than a mile from Cabot Circus in the heart of Bristol, we offer a variety of open plan studio spaces, hot desk options and workshop spaces for artists, creatives, small businesses and freelancers.  Pennywell has a welcoming, friendly atmosphere with a number of break out areas including workshop spaces, a meeting room, a separate spraying room, a communal kitchen and a small dining area. We offer 24 hour access and high speed fibre optic broadband. Competitive rental prices, inclusive of all bills, WiFi, heat, light, buildings insurance, general maintenance, use of all communal spaces, tea, coffee and great company.

Sewing in Bristol
 Stylish functional clothing made by you! Sewing is a skill everyone can master and I hope to introduce (or reignite) this for you. Once you understand the basics it doesn't have to be difficult to start making your own clothes. My focus is on practical clothing that will build the basis of your wardrobe which you'll enjoy wearing all year round. I offer various classes to suit your skill level. I hope to meet you soon at one of them.

Studio 31
offers studios and office space to rent in a prime Bristol location. Located at the top of Park Street, this stunning Georgian building houses some of Bristol's best and brightest entrepreneurs. We have a variety of different spaces to suit any needs, whether you are a budding artist looking to get involved in our vibrant creative hub or have an expanding business and need more space, we have options to suit you.

I'm Karis Reilly, an Illustrator, and designer based in Bristol. I love to create fun and imaginative characters and have a particular fascination for illustrating all things cosmic in Outer Space.  My work has a retro colour palette with vibrant pops of colour inspired by the 1950's and 60's cartoon posters. I enjoy working in digital format but always start with a hand-drawn sketch and ideation pages to explore the subject.
