    I make hand-made felt.  I enjoy the raw earthiness of felt, an ancient material that references ancient qualities of the landscape.   For me, felt represents healing, a second skin, which offers protection and comfort in a dangerous environment.  Red is important in my work - bright, striking - red offers a contrast to the muted, rugged landscape that I explore, bringing energy into a visual form.   www.rosiebaxter.com rosie@rosiebaxter.com 07977 483043

    By taking a slow approach to my work I am considering how memory affects our stability and identity. Using cloth as the fundamental fabric of life, threads echo situations we are confronted with daily. Experiences are laced with memories of those past. A rhythm in life is certain and things disturb that rhythm with frequent regularity. loisbellewtextiles.com loisbellew@aol.com 07792 686243

    Cathy Griffiths: Textiles
    Griffiths observes the wear and tear of materials, looking for the point at which original structure breaks down, questioning whether the outcome is destructive, transformative or both. The use of natural and manipulated processes creates transitions, taking work to the edge of its own collapse both literally and metaphorically. cathg@waitrose.com cathgriffiths.com 07891 904341

    Kate Boucher: Drawing, Sculpture
    Kate Boucher’s practice crosses between 2D and 3D, using representations of landscape to explore notions of residence, dislocation and precariousness and their relationship with the articulation of grief and emotional repair. www.kateboucher.com I: misskateboucher

    Pain is termed chronic if it lasts for more than twelve weeks and is now considered to be a disease in itself. Penny’s current practice is an exploration of ways to create a visual iteration of chronic pain. She has extensive experience of pain, both personal and in her career as a nursing professional. penelopeclayden@gmail.com

    Vessel as Narrative My current work is inspired by the holding of a vessel in the hand. By making the vessel I am exploring its material form and tracing the narrative of its history and tradition. I express my connection to this ancient form during the process of constructing vessels. tamiishi32@gmail.com

    Jennie Jewitt Harris: Collage
    Jennie Jewitt-Harris’ work explores the dialectical relationship between the invisible world of the inner self, and its outward manifestations. Jennie draws on her experience in medicine to inform her work and uses everyday objects, mixed media and collage to represent the personal stories and beliefs that develop throughout our lives. www.jenniejh.co.uk jennie.jh@gmail.com

    Visual effects, movement and the illusion of movement, inherent in my work contribute to the creation of kinetic jewellery, which invites wearers to play and connect with these wearable pieces. Internal mechanisms, repetition of line and the interplay of light, line and space help to create an intriguing moiré effect. www.christinejohnsonjewellery info@christinejohnsonjewellery.com +44 (0) 7801 750438

    Jo Lovelock: Textiles
    Through the processes of transition and transference I explore the emotional impact objects have on our lives. I weave psychological narratives between the real and the magical, and investigate textiles’ ability to create a holding or containing environment for our emotions. www.jolovelock.co.uk mail@jolovelock.co.uk

    Julie Massie: Ceramics
    Julie Massie takes inspiration for her artwork from the Jurassic Coastline which is a beautiful, interesting and internationally important place because of it’s fragility. The colours of the sea and the fragility of this coast are both reflected within her final outcomes. Her work also explores the senses, especially touch, sight and sound. www.juliemassie.co.uk info@juliemassie.co.uk 07967 541619

    Teresa Munn: Ceramics
    I work with poetry in ceramic forms, exploring our relationships with landscape.  The forms may be hand held objects, textured by words, or ceramic wall plaques in text form.   I write with clay, mounting the finished pieces above a background to enhance the shadows created by 3 dimensional text.

    Emotion and Torso  Any of our psychological states may show on our body and face. The series of glass lampwork and metalwork jewellery show the different emotions and moods of the artist in different periods. The artist wants to express and record some of the tough times and wonderful times that have passed in her life to reflect herself. 704431640.wix.com/queenieglass shuai_yuan0831@hotmail.com 07539023310(U.K.) +8615094314515(China)

    I am inspired by the landscape around me and traditional textiles from all over the world, especially those that evoke a sense of time and place. Working predominantly with British wool and natural yarns, I hope to produce work that is low impact on the environment and has hereditary familiarity. www.eileenprior.com eileenprior@btinternet.com 07917 353543

    Moya Tosh: Ceramics
    I play with ideas of tension by cutting and piercing my vessels and ‘stitching’ them with leather to create a new tension. I use intense blocks of glaze colour, lustres and gold, platinum and silver leaf to counterbalance the whiteness of the thrown porcelain forms. www.moyatoshceramics.co.uk enquiries@moyatoshceramics.co.uk 07927 42126
