Vanessa Reynolds

I relocated to the beautiful County of Sussex from Hampshire in September 2016 and I have been captivated by the landscape and seascape here. My latest body of work has tried to capture the vibrant colours of the sun lit hills and valleys of the South Downs this Summer ‘Walks with Owen.’ I have also included part of a collection of dancing couples, particularly focussing on dramatic lighting and the physicality of dance. I was selected to be as a contestant on Sky Arts Landsc...

Susanne Hopkinson

I work mainly in watercolour and pen although I have dabbled in pencil crayon and pastels, with the odd foray into oils.  I have lived in Sussex for over twenty years and feel that the Downs have a special place in my paintings , hence the multitude of sheep.  There is a rather illustrative edge to my painting and sometimes I venture beyond what I see and instead use my imagination . Hence the paintings of ladies with dogs or the exuberant floral depictions. My Shop Seasonal...

Whilst on holiday St Ives, I discovered Glass Fusion by Jo Downs. At the time I had just started the Foundation Diploma in Art and Design at West Dean College expecting to specialise in Oil Painting. I booked my first Glass Fusion course with Alex Robinson (now Powell) and fell in love with the medium. I gained my Diploma in 2013 and am now enjoying working in my own studio in the garden. Once I had discovered Glass Fusion I realised how important colour is in my world. I wor...

Art Classes and Tuition

Papercutting Workshop
Time: September 22 @ 1:00 pm – September 22 @ 4:00 pm

The workshop is a one of session of 3 hours in which time I'll run briefly through the history of paper cutting. We'll be practicing a few techniques, after which you will be ready to create your own papercut. You can either use a template or design your own intricate image to cut, ready for framing or mounting on cards at your own leisure. You may come prepared with ideas, sketches or get inspired from many reference books provided. All materials and use of specialist tools provided, (remember to bring your glasses if you need them!) Maximum of 8 people. The workshop cost is £30. I will be running the workshops, from 1pm to 4pm in the comfort of my house in Portslade Old Village. There is plenty of free parking available and the No 1 and 1A bus stops almost opposite the house. The early afternoon session means perfect timing for tea/coffee and home made cakes! Let me know if you would like me to reserve a place for you on one of these days and I'll send you a booking form and details for deposit to secure your place. Dates available: Saturday 22nd September (1pm - 4pm ) Saturday 6th October (1pm - 4pm ) Please email me to request a booking form. Thank you sylviehowitt@yahoo.co.uk

Jewellery Workshop Day Classes
Time: October 13 @ 10:00 am – October 13 @ 3:30 pm

We welcome all abilities. Most basic techniques are covered within the first few classes and can then be explored by the individual. More complex skills can be introduced, including stone setting, charcoal casting, box making, surface texturing and reticulation. All classes are design led, and the individual should steer their own learning to achieve their personal goals. We have a maximum of eight students in a session, each student works individually rather than on a tutor led project, allowing students to work at their own pace and also enabling beginners and those with some knowledge to work comfortably within the same group, which has many learning benefits. I’m very happy to advise on the purchase of tools and materials, and can also arrange visits from gemstone suppliers, and trips to trade fairs. I believe that a jeweller cannot be proficient in every skill and technique involved in jewellery making, so I would expect students to use specialist craftspeople for things like casting, lapidary work, engraving and I do not teach enamelling. Please feel free to bring your own tools, sketching equipment and plenty of enthusiasm.

Metal Form-Folding Workshop
Time: October 13 @ 10:00 am – October 13 @ 4:00 pm

This workshop is designed for everyone who has no knowledge or skill of metal folding but who wants to try their hand – but beware it can be a noisy day (even wearing ear-defenders). The cost for the day is £99.00 and includes use of tools and all the materials needed. There are a maximum of six places on each course and they usually run on a Saturday from September through to May. Book early to avoid disappointment, or you may prefer to start by calling David on 07796-141180 to find out about suitability and available places.
