A free meet-up designed for artists in Kent to chat, collaborate, learn, share ideas and get support. It’s a good time to reflect on the past week and discuss all things creatives.
It’s a simple get together with like-minded creative people supporting each other and an opportunity to get feedback from the group. It’s about building a more robust community for artists and creatives where the support comes from the community itself.
“Nearly 20 years ago, voluntary redundancy gave me the opportunity to fully embrace life as an artist. I studied for a degree in Fine Art, when I trained as a sculptor – rather to my own surprise, as until then I’d always thought I wanted to be a painter! But fairly early on in the course, I was seduced by 3 dimensional work, and I now construct sculptures from a variety of materials. I also love to work with kiln fused glass, from which I generally make decorative panels.”

“As a mixed media artist with a passion for recycling inherited from mum long before it became fashionable, I’ve become increasingly fascinated by the process of botanical (eco) dyeing and printing in recent years – the idea of producing magical colour and pattern from freely available plant materials and a few basic bits of equipment astonishes and excites me in equal measure. I experiment with vintage papers and fabrics and love to make small hand-made books with the results.
I hope to share something of the excitement I feel every time I unwrap a bundle from the dye pot.”
