Rosa Davis

I have been making and exhibiting my work all my life, I’m now 77 and very limited in what I can do but I’d like to support you. I have always done figurative work in various mediums, currently felt soft sculpture. For many years I was on the Craft Council’s Index of Makers, and in the 1980’s I had work bought by several museums.

An example of their work

Wedad Alamin

Wedad is half Jordanian half Polish, and always felt torn between two worlds. Through her art, she creates her own “nationality“. Her paintings focus on the play of lights and shadow, trying to present unique beauty amongst the ugliness. She is inspired by the human body and its beauty, always striving to present it as an integral entirety with spirit and soul - a full package of expression.

My art practice focuses on play art, and I enjoy working in a variety of mediums. I like to create art, which is sensory, interactive, playful and fun. Using bright colours and tactile textures I enjoy working with Rug Tufting Guns as well as Paint and Sculpture.

An example of their work

Lucia Emm

As a child I always loved fabric and as an adult I have been interested in creating pictures using layered fabric, applique, needle felting and hand stitching with a variety of yarns. Sometimes I use collage or mixed media. I am mainly self taught but completed a year textiles with the O.C.A. and have exhibited in "Art Weeks" Oxfordshire and twice with "Open Studios" in Stroud.

An example of their work

Sarah White

I am an artist based in the Cotswolds, inspired by seasonal colour and shapes from the local landscape. I create textile pieces exploring the devore print technique producing luxurious silk velvet scarves and cushions. My paintings are influenced by light falling on the linear forms in the countryside, colours are layered and painted onto velvet and enriched with gold. I also explore my observations of landscape through my collagraph and dry point printing.

An example of their work

Yvonne Wood

I make art about place, evoking memories, capturing a mood, experimenting and getting lost in the creative moment.
On moving to Stroud with its rich history in the woollen trade, I became interested in using wool and needle felt as a medium for expression.
I paint with wool allowing the layers and textures to evolve and grow into 3D relief.

An example of their work

Clare Hines

I love the use of colour and how it can uplift the spirit - most of my work is lighthearted and (hopefully) joyous! I started in digital art for fabric and surface pattern design, but more recently moved to acrylics, ink and watercolour. I am always learning...

An example of their work

Maggie Howe

I explore colour, form, material, pattern, and rhythm, and use these elements to share my feelings and impressions of the events and places of the 21st century. I aim to express what is peaceful, hopeful, and joyful in this turbulent and fast-moving time. These works are a "note to self" that life is worth the journey. The final pieces are often abstract but always start with looking, noticing and drawing.

An example of their work

Sue Bateman

My inspiration comes from the world around me, and my resources are gathered from remnant, discarded and recycled materials. The range of textures and colours made possible through the medium of textiles is endless, and the more experienced I become, the more I fall in love with the creativity that this medium has to offer.

An example of their work

Diane Young

Diane Young is a painter turned printmaker inspired by nature. She creates lively animal art and prints, which often suggest storyline & humour. Collagraph printmaking is now her main focus; creating textural printing plates, inking them up and hand pulling them through a printing press to transfer to dampened paper. Sometimes the prints are further worked into by hand adding watercolour or gold leaf and collage.
