Death By Tea

Death By Tea (aka Holly Betton) is on a mission to make your homeware more artistic. Her range of printed textiles, ceramics and cards are sweet and playful, bringing a touch of childhood innocence into our busy, grown-up lives.

Having graduated from Nottingham Trent University in 2010 with a degree in Textile Design, Holly decided to pursue her interest in drawing and printmaking. All her designs start off with a simple monoprint, creating the “naïve mark and line” that gives her work its characteristic appearance. Colour is then added along with the endearing messages that add another dimension to the cute and funny quality of her pieces.

To browse some more of Death By Tea’s lovely designs, visit her website or her Not On The High Street profile.

About Georgie Beardmore

I’m Georgie, a Creative Writing masters student at the University of Sheffield. As might be expected from someone who studies creative writing, I love writing (I write a lot -seriously, a lot), and write a variety of fiction and non-fiction things for various online and printed publications. As well as fiction, I most enjoy writing about music, the arts and student living, but I've also written things about living abroad, travel and local projects and events, as well as waffling about whatever takes my fancy on my blog. I am also heavily involved in student radio; I've been part of Forge Radio (the University of Sheffield's student radio station) for nearly four years now, helping run the station over the last two first as Secretary and then as Assistant Station Manager. Every week I present my own weekly specialist folk music show 'What The Folk?' (the show is as pun-filled as its name would suggest), on which I aim to promote new and exciting folk musicians from across the UK, and this year I've also been a part of organising some gigs as part of 'Forge Presents...', Forge Radio's series of live music events. I'm incredibly passionate about both music and the arts, and so am really excited to be part of the Born In Britain campaign and the opportunity to showcase the wealth of talent both Sheffield and the UK has to offer.
