Craft Showcase

02 December 2017 until 20 January 2018

Naomi Greaves has always been a collector of unusual things, most of which can be found  in her studio. While some items hold sentimental attachments, others she  purchased can be quite peculiar and macabre. A large part of her collection is a library of old books full of engravings and woodcuts.

Combining images from her book collection with antique papers carefully sourced and purchased, together with her passion for print, Naomi's work embraces her inspirations.

Claire Gent

Claire Gent

Jewellery showcase

02 December 2017 until 20 January 2018

Fashion meets nature. This is how Claire describes her jewellery. She combine anodised aluminium with sterling silver to create several contemporary ranges that feature flora and fauna, and reflect her love for pattern and illustration.

Designing and making is part of who she is , and with jewellery she has found a discipline that will take a lifetime to learn. Claire's pieces involve many processes including painting, immersion dyeing, forging, piercing, and riveting. The creation of a product life cycle, from thumbnail sketch, to seeing the finished design in a gallery display, is to her immensely satisfying.
