Manipulated wire work

Jo knits and manipulates coloured copper wire into jewellery and 3D pieces.  Her work evolves quite frequently as the material is malleable and she is able to weave the wire into a textile that is worked and shaped into a wide range of work.

Jo will be demonstrating during the week.


Decoupage and mixed media sculpture

Inspired by the natural English countryside and our heritage. Pieces often reflect a time gone by and a return to home and nature. Jo uses a traditional 19th century technique of decoupage which montages in layers. The images are often combined with paint and craquelure finish to give a distressed and antiqued appearance.

Jo will be demonstrating Sept 14 -16.

Industrial steel sculpture

Simon is a sculptor who works using heavy industrial steel. Based in rural Herefordshire he creates abstract and figurative works of art from both found and new material. He takes the man-made architectural steel designs and lets them subtly dictate their new purpose. 

Simon came late to sculpting, having spent 30 years in unrelated employment. Over the last 2 years though, he has been able to focus his full attention on sculpture and he has been successful in creating highly original artwork.“I revel in being my own boss, working within art and with my own designs on bespoke projects.”

Simon will be at blue-ginger all week.

Fine needle-woven beadwork jewellery

Jocelyn designs and makes fine, needlewoven, beadwork jewellery.
To create her earrings, bracelets, necklaces and rings, Jocelyn employs the traditional skill of needle weaving, using a very fine needle, specialist beading thread and tiny, cylindrical glass beads. The size and shape of the beads and the method of working, together create a fine ‘fabric’ which, whilst appearing fragile, is both strong and flexible. All fastenings are beaded so that they form an integral part of the design.
A clean, distinct line with no extraneous detail and subtle, shifting tonal effects with occasional flashes of contrast, typifies the work and creates a distinctive signature.

Jocelyn will be demonstrating Sept 9-10 , 12-13 and 16.
