This is an exhibition of recent, largely introspective, work by three very different artists who have joined forces to reflect on how they perceive their own emotions and the world around them.
Nicky Beckett has been experimenting with woodcuts and mixed media, including words, to communicate and enforce the idea of the amalgamation between the inner and the outer worlds. Her work depicts faces that reveal complex identity.
Jacki Higgs’s paintings and drawings of the coastline and the sea include swimmers, surfers and brightly coloured beach huts as she observes nature and the life around her. On display are also sketch-books of her journeys.
Irina Stancheva works with kiln-formed glass and her brightly coloured glass pieces are inspired by the natural world – plants, animals, microbes and the change of seasons. The shadows and reflections produced by the glass as light passes through it are also intrinsic part of her work.
The works included have all been produced over the course of the pandemic. They are a combination of abstract and semi-abstract collage, and gel pen drawings, developed from live online life-drawing sessions.
This is an online exhibition only.
11:00 am - 4:30 pm
Have you ever tried fusing glass? It is a lot of fun and utterly addictive. In this workshop you will learn how this is done and give it a go. You can make a beautiful glass bowl, a colorful suncatcher or something else that has a personal meaning to you. If you already have basic skills, you can work on your desired project or learn a new technique.
Fusing enables individual pieces of glass to be transformed into a single object when they are put together and exposed to high temperature in a kiln. Depending on the temperature used, different textures and other interesting visual effects can be achieved. Furthermore, placing the glass into a mould or on a prop can produce three-dimensional forms with varying complexity.
In this workshop you will:
• learn the basics of fusing glass
• become skilled in cutting glass and assembling simple forms
• learn how to achieve desired textures and other effects
• design and make your own glass objects to take home
Note that your creations will not be ready at the end of the workshop, but will be available to collect from the studio few days after the workshop, depending on the complexity of the project. All tools and materials will be provided.
The workshop is limited to two participants.
To inquire or book a place, please email Irina to: email@example.com
2:30 pm - 4:15 pm
Upcycle a tired t-shirt using the Bundle & Steam method to capture colour from botanicals. The WOW reveal brings bonus joy.
Eco printing is an environmentally friendly vibrant form of printing that uses natural organic materials bundled up in cloth. The ‘bundle’ is then steamed, capturing the beautiful colourful essences, giving a unique Eco print. It’s low impact zero waste. We will be using foraged leaves ,flowers, berries and kitchen spices.
You’ll learn a sustainable crafting skill that can be used to prolong the life of clothing and linens, reducing your environmental impact.
