Alison Ellen

Textiles, knitting and dyeing

My studio is full of colour: yarn dyeing, knitting in progress, books, and knitwear for sale. Ideas for colours and textures often come from the surrounding garden and landscape, and I have a range of designs to suit different individuals. I design jackets, jumpers, waistcoats and hats, with interest in structure and drape, as well as colour and texture, and welcome people to try them on! I also run workshops in knitting design in the UK and abroad, teaching short courses at West Dean College, and have had published four books on designing in knitting.

Ruta Brown

Jeweller

My personal vocabulary of form and texture has been developed by directly manipulating precious metals using hand tools and heat. Specialising in reticulation, I express this distinctive visual language through jewellery and small objects of silver and high carat golds. Drawn to the textural possibilities and structural limits that can be achieved when directional heat is applied to forged, folded forms, each piece is individually fabricated, resulting in a variety of intricate forms, details evoking weathered fragments of flotsam and other marine elements from the shoreline.

Jane Silk

Ceramicist

I love birds and look to capture their individual spirit - quirky, humorous, almost human, the essence of their character and behaviour, their conversations. And I love the natural world, the root of my inspiration - weather and its effects on the environment, the power of the elements, erosion and decay through time. These elements dictate the form, highlighting surface tension together with natural edges and rugged, textural effects, using a combination of slips, oxides and glazes.

Shirley Ann Stephens

Printmaker

My medium is lino printing with oil based inks. I produce quirky bold images! The hands-on process of cutting and printing is the basis of my craft. My work ranges from framed prints to greetings cards, which are all unique and handmade. I find a lot of my inspiration from African and Indian traditional arts; embroidery and textile patterns are an exciting source of ideas. I am also stimulated by attending craft workshops - always something new to learn.

Ruth Taylor

Painter

I trained as a textile designer at West Surrey College of Art and Design which has been an influence on my work in the use of colour and texture. I work in oil on canvas and board applying the paint directly on to the surface and then using combs, brushes and sticks I try to capture the English landscape, particularly the South Downs, the marks made on land by man and the effects of the weather and seasons.
