Demonstrations, cottage garden and complimentary coffee and cake!
JudyJamJar was a prolific craftsperson for over 40 years and studied stained glass before discovering a passion for all things mosaic!
Inspired by a love of colour and patterns and using a range of materials her work is unique and often humorous. Many of the materials used are recycled including broken crockery, stained glass offcuts, leftover tiles, old roofing slates, jewellery and sea-glass. The mosaic work includes jewellery, small decorative hearts and birds, wall art, mirrors, garden ornaments and larger wall installations and outdoor sculptural pieces.
Shonah has been working with wood and wool for many years but discovered the joy and versatility of glass 2 years ago. Glass allowed her to create fun colourful pieces to brighten up any window. A long term employee in the insurance business she has found an outlet to her artistic side. She started working with lead and glass then found she could create more intricate, fun and contemporary designs using the glass and copper foil technique. Having a small kiln has opened up a new avenue and she has started learning the art of fusing glass.
During open studios the artists will be available to talk about their work and there will be ongoing demonstrations of mosaic making and/or glass cutting daily. JudyJamJar runs regular one day ‘Introduction to Mosaics’ workshops, please see Facebook for details.
