Liz Harding

I am currently trying to develop some new work, a change from my usual landscape and nature images.

Still about colour and stitch this work in progress explores the dynamic qualities of abstract

expressionism using fabric, paint and both machine and hand stitch.

Christopher Noble Artist Printmaker

Professionally a printmaker for over 45 years, I moved from screenprinting to working digitally over 20 years ago. To many it is a mystery as to how I create the imagery in my prints, so I will be demonstrating how I use a variety of programmes, including the slow build-up of wire-frame models to be ‘painted’ with my own imagery. The work in progress will be projected from my laptop onto a screen so all can see the results clearly – and help people realise why it can take many months, working in multiple layers, to reach the final image in readiness to print.

Porcelain is the perfect material for creating these refined, translucent tea lights. I’ll be demonstrating how I produce the fine slabs from which they are made and form them into the final vessel.
