Below is just a representation of some of the amazing work we have on show in the exhibition.
Maggie Magoo Designs
Detailed observational drawings from life or found macroscopic images are progressed into hand made papercuts and abstract patterns and screen-printed using translucent colour, line and layers. Drawing persists in my work as an underpinning medium for its directness, purity and simplicity. Paintings are made from life or en plein air, studies of seasonal plants and flowers or exercises in colour, composition and tone."
These beautiful intricate screen prints are just some of the unframed examples we have of Louise's work the are available to buy online. We have many more framed works as part of the exhibition - please contact or visit us for details.
As well as through the colouration, the methods I use ensure that each piece is a separate and individual work of art rather than using 'mass-produced' identical moulds. Everything is twice- fired, the colour being applied before the second (glaze) firing at just under 1100 degrees C."
This is a selection of Sue's work that we have available - more in the gallery.
Lil' Rabitfoot - Samantha Yates
She has a unique background, teaching Horticulture for 12 years, with degrees in Environmental Science and Civil Engineering, these seem to naturally unite through her fascination for presenting glass to light through different botanical forms, patterns and structures.
Her botanically inspired pieces reveal her appreciation of the natural environment, the simple naïve beauty of nature and the happiness it can bring.
She loves to play with the limitations of her materials and techniques, each piece of her work is individual, rich in its handmade character.
"Light and glass together never fail to amaze me, the true beauty of colour revealed, my emotional response is one of joy"

Resin Jewellery by Leigh Shepherd
Working from her studio in Haworth, West Yorkshire Leigh Shepherd creates a range of Resin Art Boxes and jewellery. Her passion for upcycling and a desire to make affordable, quirky pieces has been her inspiration. Earrings are from sixpence coins, pendants from Scrabble tiles and brooches from draughts and dominoes. Silkscreened papers and resin create jewel-like colours in her Japanese range. The Cottage Garden Collection features her own ink drawings.
Our webshop reflects a small range, we have more stock available in store.
Wild Hive (90) - Leigh Shepherd
A beautiful, unique mixed media piece created from a vintage weaving shuttle. This is one of the largest shuttles I have worked with, it measures 50cm long, 5.5cm wide and 6cm deep. The wood has a beautiful aged patina.
I stitched the little honey bees from thread, felt and wire. The honeycomb is made from paper and filled with honey coloured resin.
The piece is signed on the back, there is a small ring so that it can be hung on the wall if you wish.
Secret hive (round) - Leigh Shepherd
This secret hive is made inside a beautiful Victorian papier-mache pot. The handprinted roses on the pot are so pretty. It's a lovely antique piece. There are signs of wear on the top of the lid, commensurate with age.
Hiding inside Leigh has created a 'secret hive' with handmade paper honeycomb and four little bees which are stitched from felt, thread and wire. The 'honey' is made from dyed resin. the piece is signed and numbered on the back. The pot when closed measures 8cm in diameter and is 6.5cm high.
