Dryad Candleworks produces vegan, soy candles, inspired by the ancient land in which we live, Argyll. Rich with ancient woodlands, mountains and lochs, the county as a whole provides ongoing inspiration for a range of natural scents.
Our wax is pure soy from sustainable farms in America. By choosing soy, we are helping to support the environment, as it is a healthily renewable resource. It can be replaced at the same rate ,and faster, than it can be consumed. It is continually produced without damaging the ecosystem in which it is grown. It is completely biodegradable.
Our fragrances are organic, essential oils and wildcrafted botanic essences, including wildcrafted infusions and artisan distilled oils from bark, needles and moss. NO petrochemicals, NO herbicides, No palm wax, NO pesticides
We make products which are as natural as possible, and in our packaging and glassware, we choose suppliers that use recycled materials. Our packaging is all recyclable.
The creative process of hand pouring, infusing oils and inspecting each candle is our pride and joy at Dryad CandleWorks. When you light our candle, you will experience the magic of the woodlands that goes into each and every creation. https://dryadcandle.com
Kayleigh McCallum Art and Illustration
I love creating illustrative artworks using oils and inks, mainly of animals and people. Bold colours and curious expressions feature a lot in my work! I paint from my studio in the east end of Glasgow and all of my prints are made in Glasgow too.
I gave up my job in advertising 4 years ago to follow my passion for creating art. I love hearing where everyone hangs their prints and originals in their house! www.kayleighmccallum.com
Rebecca Scott is an Ayrshire based artist who has exhibited across the UK and in Europe. Her artworks are held in private collections all over the world. Most drawn to creating experimental depictions of people, she incorporates printmaking techniques, acrylics, inks, blind drawing and dry media in her work.
Her new collection of portraiture was inspired by a palette knife experiment in a life drawing class. She loved the bold lines that were created by the palette knife and began combining these strong black lines with vibrant colours using paints and oil pastels. Soon she was hooked! Painting quickly, Rebecca enjoys the transformation that occurs during the process from a geometric, rigid framework of lines into something textured, detailed and colourful. The thing she loves about portraits is that they encourage us to question, who is the person, what are they thinking, how are they feeling? https://www.instagram.com/rebeccasartmix/
