COTTON and COGS:
create unique Steampunk inspired jewellery and accessories, each
piece is handmade by me using genuine watch & clock parts,
vintage lace, and broken vintage and costume jewellery. Given the
nature of my materials no two pieces are ever the same!
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.
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
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.
GLENN FITZY FITZPATRICK:
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.
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.
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.
KAREN ESTHER DOYLE:
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
VARLA DE MILO:
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.
