My name is Karen Ashby and I have a small business called The Paper Nest. I do pesticide-free wasp removal and I make art from the collected materials. I also work for another female owned business called Pretty Dead Taxidermy. We teach classes on insect pinning and mounting, as well as taxidermy and bone work. We are known for our anthropomorphic animals in various predicaments. Let's make the macabre more fun!

Rob Middleton-Hope is a woodworker, builder and musician who has come to clay sculpture recently. The pieces are a study of humans and our relationship with our planet.
