The work of ceramic artist Jane Abbot is displayed at Shoreham Art Gallery in October 2018

My ceramic work is mostly centred around the vessel form, although I also enjoy making flat wall pieces and jewellery. As an Art teacher for many years, specialising in ceramics, I find much of my inspiration came from the research that is necessary when delivering the Art GCSE and A level syllabus.

Textile artist Lara Sparks will be presenting her ‘London Landmarks’ lampshades & cushions collection at Shoreham Art Gallery in November 2018.

Lara says: “From my ‘Printed Stitch’ collection. I have produced a detailed embroidery and then had it screen printed onto linen. I then give each one a hand finish. I either use applique and free-stitch, or just free hand embroidery to add the pops of colour on this collection.” Free admission.
