Colours May Vary is based in Leeds and is an independent shop stocking a range of beautiful, useful and inspirational wares. They were the first shop in Leeds to focus on design publications.
Their main focus is graphic art and design, typography, illustration, and product design. They stock a range of books, journals, prints, cards, gifts, wrap, homeware and stationery. Their collection is sourced both locally and internationally from a mix of established and up-and-coming producers. They support fellow independents in the City and strive to bring new things to Leeds

Here’s our stuff spotted in the wild! Providing a colourful backdrop for Studio Arhoj.
Sunken Studio’s display at markets and fairs is really one that I DARE you to try pass without stopping. The playful use of pattern and stripped back colour range really makes the products pop. Once you’re in (because like I said, I don’t know how you couldn’t stop for a proper snoop), it’s obvious these wares are the making of a master. The quality of work(wo)manship and obviously extremely considered, yet seemingly simple design is what really draws me to Sunken Studio products.
As well as beautiful handmade homewares and accessories, Sunken Studio run a dizzying amount of workshops, classes and events for both young and not so young people of any ability, so you too can have a go at your own ceramic creations!

If you love colour, you might like these. I’m currently working on three sizes of ceramic petri-style dishes for The Hepworth Wakefield Contemporary Ceramics Fair in May. Available in red, yellow, orange and blue and diameters 10cm, 15cm and 20cm (approximately). These images are of work in progress. The colours look neon – they’ll still be bright when finished but not this bright…
Colour fanciers learn how to carve, layer, incise and scratch colourful designs onto and into leatherhard clay. We’ll show you a range of ceramic decorative techniques and processes. Experiment with stencils and wire loop tools to lay whatever design might take your fancy – we tend to go geometric but that’s our thing.
You’ll apply a design to shallow oblong dishes approximately 12cm x 24cm x 3cm.
Following the workshop your work will be transported back to Sunken Studio and fired twice. Finished works, fired and glazed, will be available for collection from Colours May Vary within 28 days after the session. If you are unable to collect we can arrange for your work to be delivered for £10 per address.

Colours May Vary is an independent design-focused magazine and book shop based in Leeds City Centre. Becky and Andy regularly commission work and collaborate with local businesses as well as designers and illustrators worldwide. Colours May Vary don’t just stock books and magazines though, they also stock a wide range of contemporary stationery, prints, cards and gifts.
Colour, colour. Like most of our workshops the Ceramics Taster: Fettle at Colours May Vary was developed rather serendipitously. With all external workshops I work with the venue to develop a proposal that reflects shared values. It was clear from the beginning that our ceramics workshops at Colours May Vary would involve graphical decorative techniques and colour.
