Upcycle City 7th -13th November


1234266_569473043090674_327034715_n (1)New collaborative work by Fiona Henderson and Cambridge-made label Q Here. Extended opening hours – Open Friday-Wednesday!

Earlier in 2013, Fiona Henderson and Ruth Schmid were with other artists and designers from the Cambridge Art Salon, chatting over cocktails at 196 on Mill Rd., and what started as fulfilling a rush order of custom made bags, led to them both collaborating further on Ruth’s Q Here label.

Both city residents, cyclists, creatives, and inspired by imaginative waste-users worldwide, Ruth and Fiona’s collaboration has resulted in some new unique, quirky, upcycled pieces that reflect a Cambridge lifestyle.

So now, alongside Ruth’s well known signature bags and accessories, made from used advertising banners and cycle innertubes sourced locally around town, there are some playful new departures.

Come along to the welcoming opening party from 6.30pm Friday 8th, and enjoy delicious treats from Urban Larder ( the café on Mill Rd is also showcasing Q Here upcycled products)

Show stays open throughout the weekend 9th – 10th  November so indulge, browse and enjoy.

Hope to see you there,  Ruth and Fiona.

Karl Dmitri Bishop in Conversation


Karl Dmitri Bishop talks about his work, becoming a photographer and his exhibition at the Art Salon.

In the September exhibition of his photography at the Art Salon he explored the abstract dream space by veiling and obscuring the formal subject matter to form a highly constructed surreal moment. The elaborate veils that shroud each subject lend them their intangible quality of otherworldliness.

This is a perfect opportunity to get stocked up with some extra special gifts for Christmas, including this years latest products some lovely tea towels, featuring ‘The Tea Owls’ as well as mugs, cushions, calendars and much more.

‘Karl Dmitri Bishop’s work explores the abstract dream space by veiling and obscuring the formal subject matter to form a highly constructed surreal moment.
His shots are high fabricated and processed, with each feeling more akin to a painting; the elaborate veils that shroud each subject lend them their intangible quality of otherworldliness.’
