Esther Clark

Esther loves any creative medium, in particular textiles and pen-and-ink; intricate details in drawings often translate well into fabrics. One favourite subject is buildings, and using appliqué to recreate these in fabrics, Esther adds individual touches, like pearls for a 30th anniversary, a plane for a pilot, or a welcoming cat in the window, to make commissions as personal as possible. Esther also makes cars in fabric appliqué. While this … Continue reading

Carolyn Gibbs

I am often inspired by plants and flowers, which I observe and paint, focussing on the detail. Some of these are translated into embroideries using skills I am learning at the Royal School of Needlework. Sometimes I just break out and experiment! Profits from my sales are donated to charity.

Rosemary Myles

After attending just a couple of mosaic workshops in 2012, I knew this was something I would like to do when I had time. Quite unexpectedly, just a year later, my circumstances changed and I did indeed have the time to try my hand at mosaics and by early 2014 I was hooked! I am now enjoying designing and creating unique, handcrafted colourful mosaic bowls, pots, mirrors, tables and wall … Continue reading

Chris Weedon

I have always been interested in art and creating things. I started with attending a sculpture night class which I did for several years which I really enjoyed. I modeled mainly in clay and either casting or firing the final piece. I then brought a kiln and wheel and have concentrated more on ceramics, but still like to create sculptural forms. I take inspiration from nature in creating my work. … Continue reading
