Summer is here and so is our annual garden inspired mixed show. Painters, printmakers, sculptors, jewellers and ceramic artists have all contributed to make this year’s  ‘Artist in the Garden’ a colourful, lush and verdant mix of art.

Ceramics by Clementina van der Walt – Newly arrived from Cape Town, piles of cream plates and earthy bowls interspersed with vermillion and indian yellow.

A cupboard full of exquisite sculptures by Matt Caines, carved from shed antler and inspired by traditional Inuit carving. Last year Matt spent 6 weeks on a scholarship in Yellowknife, Northern Canada, learning traditional carving techniques.

Mixed media artist,  Amanda Caines, shows us what she uses hers for…

‘I bought this bag recently thinking it would hold all my pens, paper and perhaps a sketchbook, but it has also taken all my stitchwork, embroidery threads, frames, glasses, small camera, phone and my keys. I am completely self contained, ready for travel… and I can even continue working in bed its so portable!’

See one of Amanda’s embroidery pieces below.  A collection of her jewellery is now on display in our summer show.

We have put together a Carry All Bag Selection of Artists Colour Pencils for our online shop,  an extremely versatile palette of colours with plenty of room to add to. Look at our full range of bespoke kits online, for example…
