What families are saying

May 2018
Suzanne ramaj
Attended with a 30-month-old, a 5-year-old and a 5-year-old
It was a very nice activity for the children to take part in. The ladies there were very accommodating to younger children that were there including my daughter, whilst keeping the older ones interested. I'd recommend you take a look. 😊

Meet the Team

Abigail Hunt
Lead teacher

Abigail Hunt's artistic practice centres around found objects and images and a procession of tasks: the investigative research of an image, the deconstruction of a line, the disablement of form and finally the reconstruction and reconfiguration of the object. These processes are similar to that of understanding a new language. Through translating one language of images and the later reformation and retelling through made objects Abigail creates her own structures, tones and descriptions.

Alexa Lowe
Artist

Alexa Lowe is an artist interested in exploring the voice of the mark through a range of materials and methods. She is interested in how the process of making brings thoughts into being and works with different community groups to encourage and further their creative outputs. She holds a BA in Visual Arts from the University of California, Los Angeles.

Annabel Frearson
lead workshop

Annabel Frearson is an artist who re-works existing texts into new combinations that are both poetic and political. She publishes and exhibits widely, and teaches at a number of universities.

Diana Taylor
Artist

Diana Taylor is a London-based artist, working with a multi-disciplinary approach to painting. Her practice comprises traditional and digital processes in painting, printing, textiles and needlework to explore the repetitive nature of time and notions of a-temporality in an age of information overload. The images and processes in the work are linked by a pre-occupation with redundancy, failure and ruin in visual culture. Taylor is currently studying for a PhD by practice, at Sheffield Hallam University, in collaboration with the William Morris Gallery, London.
