We had a lovely time hosting the Material Resonances: Louise K Wilson & Stephen Felmingham workshop for Somerset Art Works last week. This was part of their Prospectus programme - a pilot project to create an alternative form of art school for the dispersed art community of Somerset. http://somersetartworks.org.uk/prospectus2017/
There was a real sense of connecting through making and sharing in a learned experience. Thanks to Jon England and Fiona Hingston for organising.

Makers & Tools is a collaborative making project exploring the relationship between makers and their tools.
The project connects six emerging craft makers, who undertook a non-verbal conversation through an exchange of objects.
Join us on Friday 6th October for drinks and Q&A with the makers involved....
The exhibition and event hopes to open up the conversation to a wider audience and asks ’What happens if a maker doesn’t choose her tools? What if she is gifted a tool crafted by another maker? What effect does this seemingly benign intervention have on her making process, and what possibilities does this allow?’
Makers & Tools is an ongoing project coordinated by Melody Vaughan for more details visit the project website: makersandtoolsproject.wordpress.com
Open today for #artweeks17 in #somerset
#Willow and #metal works by @angelawildgardens @fionacampbellartist in our #sculpture field.
