Some students come with a particular item they would like to make, some just want to have a go and try out the different techinques.  Please use the message box to let me know if there is something you would particularly like to make or learn. And, don't worry if you don't know what you want to make - I have plenty of simple project sheets for you to follow too.

Latest Exhibition

Nancy Power

1st March to 30th April

‘Printmaker Nancy Power’s work reflects the life around her. Be it a changing rural landscape, the decaying plants in her garden, the geese on the lake, or her collection of hand crafted ceramics, she finds inspiration from many sources.
Deliberately eclectic in subject matter, her work is harmonised by her colour palette and distinctive inking process.


Artist of the Month: April

Vicky Michelle Squire

Vicky uses a process known as cameraless photography to create vivid and detailed colour prints of real butterflies, beetles and bees in the darkroom.
She studied photography at Nottingham Trent University and now uses her skills to capture and digitally enhance her images into swirling patterns and prints that make for the most beautiful homewares and accessories.
The insects and bugs Vicky uses to create the photograms are bought online from a taxidermy and entomology site which ensures all items it sells are legal to import and have been obtained ethically.
