Anna-Bowen-lancashire-stonecarver-detail_Home Ground exhibitorHome Ground - celebrating a sense of place
Saturday 20 September – Sunday 9 November

The exhibition
- celebrates home-grown making by showcasing the work of contemporary craftmakers who use materials which are locally distinct, natural or recycled. Taking inspiration from the Dorset charity Common Ground's idea of 'local distinctiveness' - the show   explores local heritage and environment through different crafts - from traditional skills and resources, to contemporary installations.


John haggar The exhibition is a springboard for taking the idea of local distinctiveness forwards into a national project funded by Arts Council England. More info...

It takes the ethos of the Devon Guild, its commitment to craft knowledge and practice - direct to national league football clubs across the UK. The selected clubs have teams whose nicknames relfect a heritage originating from the traditional craft industries of their locality.

Michelle Greenwood-Brown - Contemporary mosaics
Michelle Greenwood Brown mosaics showcase23 August - 13 October

By working with different materials and exploring diverse subject matter the medium of mosaic remains fresh and exciting to me. My glass work reflects either my fascination with theories such as the existence of dark matter and dark energy or my passion for medieval stained glass.

Currently I am working with traditional tattoo art and Mexican Day of the Dead imagery using ceramic tile. My favourite historical mosaics were made by the Aztecs, beautiful examples of which are on display in the British Museum.
