Out of the Wood

Friday 7 August - Friday 21 August
12:00 am - 2:30 pm

An ONLINE exhibition of drawings and prints exploring wood and woodland by Tansy Lee Moir and Margaret Pitt.

Out of the Wood Exhibition »

‘Out of the Wood’ brings together two artists whose contrasting work shares themes of time, history natural processes. Wood also unites them, as a material to create images from and as a living subject to make images of.

Margaret Pitt uses plywood to create her bold woodcut plates, producing richly textured, layered prints. Her colourful imagery is suffused with symbols and archaeological influences, both mysterious and timeless.

Tansy Lee Moir hunts through woodlands for the ancient and unusual trees which are the source of her work. Her dramatic charcoal works conjure light falling on time-ravaged tree forms, whilst her dynamic drawings and oils convey a sense of movement and vibrancy.

7th – 21st August 2020.

One-On-One Glass Jewellery Making Class

Saturday 8 August
11:00 am

The glass jewellery making classes are back!

For the time being they will be held as one-on-one workshops, once a week, to keep all of us safe. You can come with one other person as long as it is a family member or someone from your close social ‘bubble’.

If you are new to glass, but would like to design and make few pieces of your own bespoke jewellery, then this class is for you. You don’t need any prior skills or knowledge, just imagination and creativity. We will use colourful fusable glass, which incorporates metals and is perfect for making sparkling jewellery, and both a microwave and a larger glass kiln.

In this class you will learn:

  • the basics of fusing glass
  • how to cut and layer glass in preparation for fusing
  • how to fuse glass in a kiln
  • post-fusing processing, such as grinding and polishing
  • how to attach jewellery findings to glass

At the end of the class you should be able to take home a finished pendant (or two) and a pair of earrings (or two) of your own design. You are welcome to bring your ideas or follow a pre-designed project. The skills that you will learn will help you start making your own glass jewellery at home or in a studio setting. Tools, and materials will be provided, but please bring an apron with you and wear a mask.
