Alison Dupernex

A demonstration in creating her unique knitwear ' I am constantly experimenting by mixing fibres to capture the spirit of a place or object and build a sculptural fabric by using felting techniques.'

Alison's  work is intricate with tucked stitches, and 20 plus colour changes within each design to provide the wearer with a garment that has sculptural depth and subtlety of colour.

Her starting point may be inspired by a subject, or by the character of a paper or sometimes by a technique. Research and experimentation form the background to her ideas.

Bridget Williams

'Most of my work is thrown on the wheel using red earthenware clay to make pots for everyday use. Shapes range from large bowls and platters to teapots, jugs, mugs and egg cups.' Bridget uses the pots as a canvas to which she applies coloured slips under a transparent glaze. Designs evolve over the years, the constant colour being a cobalt blue slip in varying intensities, onto which she might paint, slip trail, sponge, draw or add imagery by using paper stencils or latex resist.
