Louise Grundy Studio
Louise Grundy Ancestry Heads Louise creates papier maché sculptural portraits of people’s family members, ancestors and heroes, using colour supplements, copies of certificates and photographs. Louise has developed her technique over a number of years and teaches them both online and in her studio near Cranleigh. Louise’s work, which will be on sale in the studio, ranges in size from small sculptures designed to sit on a surface to large pieces that are wall-hung. All are full of character and are sure to make you smile. Louise was Artist in Residence at Watts Gallery in Compton last year and has since been developing a new series of work.
Come and help make our Paper Mache Monster on launch day and during Open Studio’s everyone welcome to have a go, children and adults welcome.
Fee Fraser, Thimble & Thrift Fee creates homeware, stationery, gifts and quirky automata by combining free machine embroidery with repurposed vintage items. Every item is unique and comes with lots of frivolous frippery!
Fee has been a maker all her life. With an Art Foundation, a City & Guilds in Textiles and a BEd, she spent many years as a Primary teacher, specialising in Art & DT.She started creating free-machine embroidery pictures five years ago when she decided to depict her 50 favourite simple pleasures. The response was so positive that she carried on and now trades under the name Thimble & Thrift. She gets her teaching ‘fix’ running textile workshops and regularly runs stalls selling her work. She is happy to take on commissions for pictures and lamps.
Victoria Phillips, Silver Anvil Jewellery From her Ranmore Common Studio, Victoria works to produce unique, beautiful pieces that become much loved and frequently worn. She works closely with her clients to create pieces that suit every occasion, taking care to add some personal meaning to the client’s choice of jewellery.
She draws inspiration from the natural world, and particularly from the interpretation of natural forms found in medieval craftsmanship and the Arts and Crafts movement. The textural effects of heat upon metal are explored in her more contemporary pieces.
