Susie Ramsay-Smith – Ceramicist

My artistic journey was inspired by my mother with painting, but once I touched clay I realised I’d discovered the medium for me!  The primordial nature of clay appeals to my sense of tradition, yet allows my individual style to evolve. I’m an experienced tutor with regular classes, exhibiting locally.

Marion Hayes – Textile artist and maker

I have always made things for as long as I can remember enjoying mostly textiles. Felting and needle felting, making cushions, bags, jewellery etc, but have always enjoyed making for the Christmas season. Lately, I have combined wool and fabrics in layered abstract pictures using much more colour than I would have considered in the past and am thoroughly enjoying it!

Marianne van Niekerken – Basket maker

 With over 10 years’ experience as a basket maker, Marianne van Niekerken has developed a style and collection that is instinctive and organic, using techniques that are hundreds of years old. Functionality is key. May it be willow, birch, beech, ash, hornbeam, Siberian dogwood or brambles, to name but a few; if it is colourful and pliable, it will be used in various ways for dog baskets, cat pods, log-, stair- or shopping baskets, or any design or use that you have in mind.
