Artist in Focus:
Andy Wilkinson creates iconic imagery in limited

and gold, often including hand-embellishments of
edition screen prints that are a fusion of colour, silver gold. Andy refers to his work as Fables: each image is lovingly hand-drawn, and from the original master, Andy creates his screen prints. Andy is a storyteller; he introduces characters and places, sets the scene, but invites us to imagine the narrative. Andy is inspired by the relationship between animals, nature and man. He also explores childrenâ€™s literature and medieval illuminated manuscripts.

Knit fun 3-d shapes without seams. Participants will create shapes for a Christmas decoration, hat, bag or cushion. All levels are welcome. Alison’s approach to teaching design is to take a fresh look at knitting as a constructive textile technique where it is possible to build shapes without seams. We explore how stitches can alter the fabric, using the way stitches are combined to create shaping rather than the ‘dressmaking’ approach of altering the edges of separate pieces by increasing and decreasing. The aim is to gain confidence to experiment.
Clare Crouchman Maker in Focus:
Clare’s work draws upon the intricate shapes and textures in
5 January – 23 February
and repetitive patterns that repeat themselves naturally on
the landscape for inspiration. She is intrigued by rhythmical both a large and small scale. Clare’s choice of materials and working methods are crucial to the desired outcomes. Ceramic materials go through a series of transformational processes, paralleling those of the natural world, which bring a strong physical dimension to her work. An influence of cities, mapping, mazes and labyrinths is clearly evident within Clare’s ceramics as well as her collographs and etchings.
