Helen Davies is an artist specialising in needlecrafts; she is interested in the social history of craft and women. She also makes monsters at helenmakes.co.uk.

Historian and curator Jenny White is curious about the way different sections of society are represented in the media and history books. She’s drawn to those whose stories aren’t usually told. She also takes photos for Trash Gallery
