I create mosaics from china ornaments and crockery, which I find in car boot sales, charity shops and antique shops. Sometimes I use family heirloom crockery when making a piece for a family member. The pieces vary in size and complexity. I am happy to take commissions, although all the designs are individual and depend on what I find on my travels. However, any favourite elements you have can be included.
Sue is inspired by the local environment to create vibrant emroideries and watercolours.
I am an experienced Art Teacher and an enthusiastic Prtintmaker. My quirky Linocuts illustrate well-loved nursery rhymes and sayings or are inspired by local places. I have recently added driftwood assemblages and collages to my repertoire, giving me an excuse to spend hours on the beach! I exhibit regularly in an Open House at Brighton Festival, in Steyning and here in Shoreham.
Malcolm is overwhelmed by the energy of life, the powerful need of creatures, plants to exist. Birth, sex, death, everything that powers life. He loves oil colour on a canvas, the smell, the way it's moved with a hog hair brush. He loves the richness of the earth colours but not exclusively. Malcolm has always painted as much as time would allow, since he was about 5 years old. In many ways the most significant experience was seeing the film The Horses Mouth when he was about...
I work mainly in watercolour and pen although I have dabbled in pencil crayon and pastels, with the odd foray into oils. I have lived in Sussex for over twenty years and feel that the Downs have a special place in my paintings , hence the multitude of sheep. There is a rather illustrative edge to my painting and sometimes I venture beyond what I see and instead use my imagination . Hence the paintings of ladies with dogs or the exuberant floral depictions. My Shop Seasonal...

Art Classes and Tuition
Time: October 13 @ 10:00 am – October 13 @ 3:30 pm
We welcome all abilities. Most basic techniques are covered within the first few classes and can then be explored by the individual. More complex skills can be introduced, including stone setting, charcoal casting, box making, surface texturing and reticulation. All classes are design led, and the individual should steer their own learning to achieve their personal goals. We have a maximum of eight students in a session, each student works individually rather than on a tutor led project, allowing students to work at their own pace and also enabling beginners and those with some knowledge to work comfortably within the same group, which has many learning benefits. I’m very happy to advise on the purchase of tools and materials, and can also arrange visits from gemstone suppliers, and trips to trade fairs. I believe that a jeweller cannot be proficient in every skill and technique involved in jewellery making, so I would expect students to use specialist craftspeople for things like casting, lapidary work, engraving and I do not teach enamelling. Please feel free to bring your own tools, sketching equipment and plenty of enthusiasm.Metal Form-Folding Workshop
Time: October 13 @ 10:00 am – October 13 @ 4:00 pm
This workshop is designed for everyone who has no knowledge or skill of metal folding but who wants to try their hand – but beware it can be a noisy day (even wearing ear-defenders). The cost for the day is £99.00 and includes use of tools and all the materials needed. There are a maximum of six places on each course and they usually run on a Saturday from September through to May. Book early to avoid disappointment, or you may prefer to start by calling David on 07796-141180 to find out about suitability and available places.
