As part of the new exhibition at Sunny Bank Mills – Material Matters (supported with funding from Arts Council England) I have been invited to deliver a one day workshop.

Participants will create their own hand cast jesmonite art using moulds they will have made from mill artifact and the surface of the mill buildings.

This is an explorative and experimental workshop where you will learn about jesmonite, a lightweight eco alternative to concrete, to create your own single use clay mould, cast jesmonite and finish the piece.

Fabric of the North

There are ‘bricks and mortar’ exhibitions still out there waiting for national restrictions to be lifted and visitors welcomed. Hopefully not too long before we can all get a much needed ‘art fix’ in a real building.

I have two pieces showing in Fabric of the North at Kirkleatham Museam. The museum is lovely and worth spending a couple of hours there. It’s not far from Saltburn-On-Sea, a lovely victorian spa town, and just down the road is Redcar where you can find the Palace Art Gallery. If restrictions permit it’s worth making a day out of it.

Fabric of the North brings together works by members of the British Tapestry Group, in a range of styles and techniques, large and small, with a single theme: our Northern heritage. ​​The exhibition is open now at Kirkleatham Museum, a magnificent Queen Anne building near Redcar in Teesside (UK). 

The exhibition has been extended until 30 April 2021. Travel restrictions may be in place so please do check before visiting.
