Garden City | Friday 14th November 2014 - Saturday 17th January 2015
We are delighted to have the opportunity to exhibit the wonderful prints of Angela Harding which are inspired by British wildlife and the natural beauty of her surrounding in North Norfolk. To complement the themes in Angela’s work we have invited a group of contemporary jewellers, whose work responds in colour or inspiration, to show their work alongside the prints.
“The main theme of my work is British birds combined with the British countryside. I have always loved birds!”
– Angela Harding
In The Window | 1st - 30th November | Dennis Hales
Dennis Hales was selected from our Artist’s Membership for this spotlight exhibition.
“A love of wood and the use of colour and gilded finishes are reflected in a wide range of decorative turned pieces. Local white woods, sycamore, holly, and ash, provides a three dimensional canvas for water soluble dyes and gilded finishes of gold silver and copper. The range of work includes fruit displays, wall plates, bowls, gilded boxes and commissioned pieces.” Dennis Hales
Workshop | Simple Paper Book Making with Elizabeth Willow | Sunday 7th December | 11am - 4pm
Spend a day exploring the delights and challenges of paper, its qualities and quirks, strength and delicacy. You will use simple folding, stitching and printing techniques, and work with ordinary tools and materials to create extraordinary structures, which can hold stories, thoughts and ideas. You will take home a small collection of elegant books, from the traditional pamphlet and accordion book, to the more sculptural origami-based flower and map books. Call 0151 709 4014 to book a place.
Craft Goes Pop! | 24th January 2015 - 7th March 2015
