Rebekah Marrington Makes

Hello! I’m Rebekah Marrington and I make jewellery and cyanotypes, from my home in the Pennine market town of Hebden Bridge. It makes me happy, gives me a focus outside of my office based job, and depending on the weather allows me to be outside in nature or to feel snug in our home.

From 11th to 19th May 2024 I am part of Super Seconds Festival. Head here to shop yarn and ceramic jewellery & jesmonite and ceramic homewares and here to shop cyanotype original art, prints and cards – cyanotype & lino cut prints.

When the sun is shining I make cyanotype originals, prints & cards under the brand Calder Valley Cyanotypes, and when the weather dictates a cosier existence you can find me making Wearable Whatknots, jewellery and keyrings using recycled cotton yarn, embroidery threads and ceramics.

I find it a lovely combination of crafts / practices to engage in: one based on life outdoors, creating in the sunshine, and the other more suited to evenings and winter weekends in front of the fire, listening to music or an audiobook whilst my fingers keep busy.

View (and shop!) my makes

I began Wearable Whatknots in 2022, on a summer holiday where all I wanted to do to wind down after a busy time at work was to sit on a blustery beach on the North Yorkshire coast and get crafty with embroidery threads and recycled cotton yarns whilst my kids played in rock pools and looked for fossils in the cliffs.

I love making (and wearing) colourful, chunky yet lightweight jewellery, and initially made items for myself and friends. After a few requests to make items as presents I started my Etsy shop, began selling at craft fairs and in early 2023 the wonderful Spirals in Hebden Bridge became my first high street presence.

In February 2023 I began experimenting with cyanotypes using pressed plants and flowers found on local walks or growing in my tiny garden and yard, and soon after my other making brand, Calder Valley Cyanotypes, was born. Initially restricted to small scale cards I now enjoying making botanical compositions up to A3 size, and sell my work mounted and framed (via print fairs and Open Studios events) as well unframed in order to post for online orders. A number of local shops sell my greetings cards, and you can buy these individually and in packs, online.

I keep my photogram process as natural as possible, so use only the sun’s light to expose the image and don’t force my prints by developing with peroxide – just water. I also use recycled papers wherever possible and always in my professionally printed greetings card ranges. I sometimes offer non-perfect seconds originals, where due to the organic and unpredictable process I am not 100% happy with the finished cyanotype image.

Of course in the Pennine hills in West Yorkshire it is not always possible to have the sunshine when you want and need it, so when the sun is hiding I make my jewellery collections from my lounge, or in the case of ceramic earrings, from Northlight Art Studio where I take a weekly ceramics class. You can shop my ceramic earrings by clicking on the picture below.

May 2024 Super Seconds Festival

From 10am on Saturday 11th May until Sunday 19th May, you can shop my Super Seconds Festival sections of the two Etsy shops with discounts of up to 75% across jewellery, art, cards, and homewares. Here’s a sneak peak of what will be on offer – and everything is limited to one of a kind experimental items, items with slight mistakes, or just older stock I’m clearing out to make way for newer lines.

Head to for art and cards (including my lino cut greetings cards) and to for jesmonite and clay coasters, yarn necklaces, earrings and keyring and ceramic earrings. Everything has been made by me within the last two years.

Welcome to Rebekah Marrington Makes. I’ve brought together my different making brands into one website, so you can more easily explore my Wearable Whatknots recycled colourful yarn jewellery, and my Calder Valley Cyanotypes work, which I can only make on sunny days, on the path outside my house in Hebden Bridge.
