I paint mostly in acrylics, but am currently exploring mixed media. My work is mostly inspired by landscapes both in this country & in France where I spend a lot of time. I taught art in primary schools for many years, but since giving up teaching have really enjoyed working at my own level again. I have exhibited at the North Bristol Art Trail for several years & took part in the Southbank trail for the fist time last year which was a very enjoyable experience.
You can visit my website at www.maggiebignell.co.uk where you can see a selection of past & current work.
I set up Make and Do in 2010 with the intention of encouraging people to be creative and to provide beautiful hand made things for people who don't have time to make it themselves.
I stock a range of craft supplies including buttons, ribbon, fat quarters and lots of other goodies. I have also designed a range of kits and provide free templates and instructions via my website and facebook page.
I make a range of ready made and made to order items including personalised bunting, hand print cushions, fabric creatures and tea-cup pin cushions.
Malago Women’s Institute will be serving a darker brew this year at The Stormy Teacup Cafe. Sweet and savoury food made by the women of our Institute will be available as well as a tea, coffee and soft drinks. Artworks from our members will feature alongside prints, paintings and sculptures from local artists, Maria Bowers and Matthew Healey. Not for the faint hearted, this exhibition features some dark and mysterious work.
The textile panels I create originate from my own finely detailed drawings depicting places I have visited and subjects close to my heart.I take the drawings and then after printing these onto fabric I appliqué them to a backing of complimentary design or my own screen printed fabric.My other work includes screen printed designs on fabric, t-shirts and cards.In addition to my own artwork I teach and deliver workshops to children and adults.Commissions and orders welcome
Local jewellery designer/maker. Inspired by the repetitive urban landscape, frenetic inner city life, the sea and natural environment.
I work largely in silver, enamels and semi-precious stones using various surface treatments, traditional skills and more modern technology. This year I will also be showing some new work in copper and brass.
I shall be at St Paul's Church once again with original acrylics, limited edition prints, home made cards etc. www.matlockfm.com
Mike is an artist from Sussex, who moved to Bristol last November.
He paints using oils in a predominantly representational style in his own name, but also paints a range of brushed out oil abstracts “as a release from the detailed work” using the alias Romero.
You can see some of the Romero abstracts at the Tobacco Factory and an example of his representational work at the Southville Centre.
I will be showing alternative portraits and offering visitors the opportunity to have their portraits taken in a similar style.
In addition, I will be exhibiting work from abandoned buildings throughout Europe.

I am an illustrator of children's picture books, come and see me and my work at my home studio :) There will be original artwork for sale, prints and cards, as well as my books. Most recently 'Scary Mary' (written and illustrated by myself) about a chicken with tantrums! Published in March of this year by Tiger Tales, New York.
52 Hamilton road will be hosting art, design and craft work by myself and several other local artists, the work on show will include printmaking, illustration, textiles and ceramics and will be available at affordable prices. My work reflects my interest in narratives developed from magical themes, using woodblocks cut with laser technology to reproduce my drawings, hand engraved etchings and ceramics. The work ranges from classical to comic and explores the use of traditional and contemporary creative techniques.
