I make decorative brush-painted tin-glazed earthenware for use and display. My recent work explores a wax resist technique for designs, together with new colour combinations.

I accept commissions for commemorative work, including wedding and christening gifts.

I run workshops at Greenham and offer individual throwing lessons in my studio space.

I have rediscovered colour and am experimenting with paint, textures, layers and what lies beneath the surface. There is so much to learn, but what an exciting journey it is.

Drawing and Painting Rosemari Golledge

My inspiration comes from places and spaces, but in my work, I do not intend to depict the 'real world'. I seek to express colour in all its beauty exploring a range of possibilities through subtle changes in colour choice, composition, method of application and surface preparation. Each painting is a journey, which ends where the journey of the viewer starts, taking my work into infinite possibilities of interpretation.

Mixed media Julie Parker

My work is led by found or collected materials such as dryer lint and human hair. I explore the meanings found within these materials through drawing, sculpture and installation. The human body is always absent, but mental states often become evident in the surreal finished objects. I have exhibited at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York and various UK galleries.

Drawing and Painting, Sculpture, Traditional crafts Helen Peake

Drawing is the groundwork for most artistic processes and my focus at present. This year I have concentrated on form and line in Life Drawing - but only black and white, not yet allowing myself the distraction of colour.

Unable to exclude colour from my life, I have balanced the drawing with botanical painting, learning more in-depth colour theory of hue, value and saturation through watercolour painting and gouache.

Stone carving is also a continuing interest.

Sculpture Luke Webb

My work deals with the grey area of human experience: whether it's sculpture or painting, I strive to create work that is strongly felt but not easily explained.

Romanticism and a strong interest in figure drawing underpin my approach to public art, ensuring it is both accessible and compelling.
