Amy makes translucent porcelain lighting from her home studio by the sea with her westie, Dexter, at her feet. Visit the studio to see wall lights, pendants, cluster chandeliers and accessories for the home. Beautiful when lit, delicate and unique. Amy will have the full collection on display for purchase during the Adur Art Trail, as well as some specials and seconds at great prices too. As well as being beautifully white and pure porcelain is translucent so the light shines...
I live in Shoreham and have been painting scenes around the country and abroad for many years. I paint mostly in oils which allows me flexibility and to create my own style. I am a member of Shoreham gallery and have sculptures and paintings there.
My passion for creating figurative sculpture started in my teens, I found the concentration, the quiet environment totally absorbing. This passion remained with me and I returned, whenever possible, to the one area that gave me total peace of mind. Sculpture became an integral part of my life, a second self although my choice of materials has continuously changed and developed. Currently based in Sussex, I have exhibited in Brecon, South Wales in The Six Artists Exhibition, w...
Karen is a multi media artist who is particularly known for her colourful garden pieces, working with stained and fused glass, Jewell like colours which glow in the light, tall columns bringing structure to the garden. Her work always has a contemporary edge though she uses very traditional skills. Playing with colour and reflection , these pieces are built to withstand our British climate and look stunning in a frost.
I have been making textile bags, accessories and related items such as purses, phone and glasses cases for about 6 years. I love fabric and like to try different techniques all the time. By never making 2 identical bags I never get bored!

Art Classes and Tuition
Time: September 22 @ 1:00 pm – September 22 @ 4:00 pm
The workshop is a one of session of 3 hours in which time I'll run briefly through the history of paper cutting. We'll be practicing a few techniques, after which you will be ready to create your own papercut. You can either use a template or design your own intricate image to cut, ready for framing or mounting on cards at your own leisure. You may come prepared with ideas, sketches or get inspired from many reference books provided. All materials and use of specialist tools provided, (remember to bring your glasses if you need them!) Maximum of 8 people. The workshop cost is £30. I will be running the workshops, from 1pm to 4pm in the comfort of my house in Portslade Old Village. There is plenty of free parking available and the No 1 and 1A bus stops almost opposite the house. The early afternoon session means perfect timing for tea/coffee and home made cakes! Let me know if you would like me to reserve a place for you on one of these days and I'll send you a booking form and details for deposit to secure your place. Dates available: Saturday 22nd September (1pm - 4pm ) Saturday 6th October (1pm - 4pm ) Please email me to request a booking form. Thank you firstname.lastname@example.orgJewellery Workshop Day Classes
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
