Lone Hudson, Beccy Courtney and Lorna Goldsmith
I design and make contemporary stoneware ceramics, predominantly coiled or slab constructed vessels, dishes and bowls. With my background as an architect I approach ceramics from a sculptural perspective. This year I have been moving towards creating more organic expressive pieces. At my workshop there will be opportunity to make a small object of your own.
My art is an expression of my emotions. I went to Art School where I studied Graphic Design, but not long after having my first son 24 years ago, I suddenly had the inspiration to paint after a gin and tonic one evening. I frequently do commissions for corporate and private clients. I hope you enjoy looking at my paintings as much as the pleasure it gives me creating them.

Mixed media, Textiles
Using a number of textile techniques I explore ideas about ecology and nature. Developing abstracted and stylised motifs in organic forms I am intrigued by nature's ability to regenerate and find ways to support life even after periods of stress.
My main techniques are felting, tapestry weaving and stitch in different combinations. Ideas about growth and evolutionary development are worked through in the forms that textiles enable.
