JEWELLERY Organic-shaped jewellery, with tactile textured surfaces, in recycled 925 and sterling silver, and gold / rose gold vermeil. Mojo and the Maker jewellery is individually handmade locally by Sarah Jane Whittaker, former head tutor at the Sussex Jewellery School. No longer able to feel things properly with her fingers due to a health condition, as sensation has slipped away, Sarah Jane has become fascinated by textures and worn surfaces in the landscape. As a result, the beautiful jewellery that she painstakingly creates celebrates the joy of touch, with soft textured finishes, and semi-relief patterns drawn from nature. firstname.lastname@example.org www.mojoandthemaker.com www.notonthehighstreet.com/partners/mojoandthemaker/products 07939 696 465 f.
I trained as a textile designer (C&G) for 4 years followed by BA Arts degree at Wolverhampton. Worked as Art lecturer at Wolverhampton. I set up my retail business 16 years ago and have continued to sell my own work but now have more time to dedicate to my art. Much of my work is inspired by my travels and landscape plays a big part. My paintings are usually acrylic but often have the addition of textiles. My studio is in Fusion at The Tile Museum, Jackfield.
I grew up in Shropshire and graduated with a Fine Art Degree from Liverpool John Moores University in 1995. I have worked as an arts facilitator since 1996, project managing and delivering participatory arts projects for children and adults and I currently work in partnership with local artist Natalie Toplass under the company name of Octopus Arts Shropshire. As a qualified post 16 arts tutor I have taught art at Cardiff University, HM Prison Parc Bridgend, The Gateway Shrewsbury and Telford College of Arts and Technology (TCAT). I am based in Broseley and I currently teach a number of adult art classes locally in Broseley,
Nigel Glaze (M.A.) Fine Art Painter email@example.com https://nigelglaze.myportfolio.com website https://artbaazar.com/collections/nigel-glaze online gallery https://www.artfinder.com/nigel-glaze shop ARTISTS STATEMENT To notice something, something about the world outside creates an inner connection; a reflection, a feeling, a thought and a connected story or memory. I believe act of looking is a complex psychological process; my paintings explore looking and making connections with people and places. Looking whilst mark making generates interactions with memories and stories this then effects the looking. My desired goal is to inspire those who see my work to connect with the process of looking, being emotionally open, reflecting and noticing. I’ve always communicated through
My preferred medium is ink but I also work in pastel, pencil and mixed media. My work covers a broad range of subjects, from places to peacocks. Through texture and detail, I aim to depict mood and atmosphere. instagram – https://www.instagram.com/sambrettatkin
I am inspired and influenced by organic shapes and the beautiful Shropshire countryside. I am a printmaker and ceramicist. I work in paperclay, mainly porcelain but also chocolate clay. The strength of paperclay gives me the opportunity to hand build my vessels with a sense of the fragility of a flower or a leaf. I mainly leave the beauty of the fired clay in the final vessel, but a few are glazed, smoked or occasionally have the addition of kintsugi – an ancient Japanese method which uses gold as an enhancement. This year I will also be exhibiting some of my paintings. Mobile 07758363189 Email
I’ve been painting, on and off, for over 40 years. I like to describe myself as an eclectic artist, as I am constantly experimenting with new techniques, styles and media. However, one enduring theme of much of my work has been the built and natural environment of the Ironbridge Gorge and the surrounding area, and I have several works o this theme. Prices of my work vary from £35 – £200 Acrylic, Oils and Watercolour impressionist, abstract or sometimes a little surreal. https://ironbridgesteve.wixsite.com/stevevaughanartwork https://www.facebook.com/SteveVaughanArtwork/ Dale End Park Heart of the forrest.

I am a designer, maker & collector where I live and work in Shropshire. The heart of my work involves hand stitching, traditional embroidery and collage work. I have been creating since a young girl, home taught by my grandmother Lavinia who was a seamstress and experienced in many of the traditional crafts including hand stitching ,embroidery and knitting. My inspiration & work stems from these early practises and I have continued since then, adapting and developing my own personal style along the way. Continously collecting found and forgotten objects are incorporated into my work. Fabrics old flower books & old worn paper is what inspires my creations. I often
Having recently relocated from Lancaster, it is a dream come true to be working as a jeweller in the Ironbridge Gorge. I have admired the beauty of the Severn Valley for almost 20 years whilst visiting friends in Coalport. During this time I have worked as an office administrator but my creative interest has been in Silversmithing. This year I have taken the leap of faith to “give up the day job” and move South, being fortunate enough to start my business, MIST Jewellery, in the idyllic setting of the Maws Craft Centre. Silversmithing is my passion, it’s in my blood! I love manipulating metal
I have always enjoyed painting and have now also taken up sculpting in clay which i find both exciting and relaxing! My work is usually based on wildlife which is very dear to my heart and never ceases to give me such pleasure to see. I hope i capture some of this in both my 2D and 3D work. I have also recently started paint dancers in acrylics and watercolour – trying to show their grace and movement . firstname.lastname@example.org
