A Theatre of Plates: An exhibition of artist decorated ceramics
Tuesday 11 – Tuesday 18 September
Stimulate the senses with a fusion of art, trickery and fun. Take a piece of vintage reclaimed china, a selection of porcelain pens in many colours, and a visual artist. Combine these with imaginative flare and themes – maybe flora, mythology follies or surrealism. Decorate and embellish with skill and confidence, bake to perfection and produce a work of art.
Camilla Broadbent – Beautiful and Damned
Tuesday 11 – Tuesday 18 September
A ravishing series by this multi-award winning photographer with sumptuous textures and painterly light, her compelling images of fruit and vegetable lend these stills a fatal beauty.
