13 amazing artists taking part:
1 COTTON and COGS:
2 CAROLINE GREGORY:
Limited edition one off clay artworks, souvenirs of the ‘sea’. Each object came from the earth and was shaped with the intuition that comes from remaining in a state of openess. This is porcelain, crank, terracota, earthenware and red grog clay.
3 DEBBIE ELLIOT:
The Unicorn trail was an art display that has been shown in various venues, unicorns and riders scattered about the area for explorers to track down. It has always been a popular piece & the creator D J Elliott has also used the unicorns in a poem film that can be seen on her youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCPPUxEeml6er4DFUwCgX1Rg
4 DICK GRAHAM:
Dick will be selling a range of small framed drawings, watercolours and monoprints, as well as hand printed linocut cards, including his anti-Tory Santa and Snowman.
5 GLENN FITZY FITZPATRICK:
Artist/ Author/ Veteran. My practise involves making an attempt to clean up the environment whilst making art. By recycling nitrous oxide canisters I make sculptures and wearable art. The canisters serve more than one purpose, therefore becoming high art.
6 JOANNA MCCORMICK:
I am a painter, in oils and watercolours, a sculptor in cardboard and plaster and junk, and a sometimes singing live artist delivering a variety of performance pieces including "Vox Wonder, Voice Activated Drawing Machine", "Sweetalking" and "Moon Moon Sing Sing". At Little Nan’s I will be selling miniature mushroom sculptures, Peace Pops, Art Scarves and Christmas Fish.
7 JULIA MADDISON:
I make things out of paper and fragments; bits of cloth, flotsam and jetsam. These things often have a message; sometimes it is loud and anarchic, sometimes a whisper. I will be selling handmade prints and embroidered pants; pants as art and art as pants.
8 KAREN ESTHER DOYLE:
KED takes unloved and discarded ceramic figurines and remakes them into joyfully quirky, queer, unique character ceramic pieces. From clown drag queens to regal dog princesses and child like elders, her broken ceramic pieces are full of personality. Love ’em or hate ’em they are truly unique talking pieces.
9 MARIO JEROME:
These small paintings are A6 in size. I had an exhibition of paintings of A1 size and wondered whether I could create smaller images and landscapes that could hold the gaze.
10 RACHAEL HOUSE:
I will be selling beautiful riso zines, medals for deserving trouble makers, intersectional feminist cups, ceramic badges, radical name tapes and more rabble rousing goods to give us strength and buoy us up in difficult times.
11 RUBBISH ARTIST:
With her desire to get to the bottom of real creativity and remove art from its conventional and confined realm, Rubbish Artist was inspired to begin experimenting with materials which would normally be considered to be “rubbish” and discarded by society. She transforms these items into enriching art objects that highlight society’s wastefulness.
12 SKIP SISTERS:
The Skip Sisters are a collective of artist friends based in South London who have have been upcycling for a decade. They create one-off covetable objects from humble sources. Their work is notorious for its sense of fun. Jewellery, dioramas, and textiles will be exhibited.
13 VARLA DE MILO:
I am a ceramicist, specialising in hand-built animals, mainly horses. I don't like to make anything too realistic, instead I aim to make characters that will hopefully raise a smile.
