'Winter Warmers'
A Collaborative Exhibition by Lucy Anne Harding, Hannah Stoney and Emily Notman

Three of Staffordshire's finest artists, Lucy Anne Harding, Hannah Stoney and Emily Notman come together to showcase their latest collections of textile illustrations, mixed media work, watercolour paintings, screen prints, ceramics and fabrics. Sure to be an uplifting, contemporary show to keep you warm this winter. '

Lucy Anne Harding creates Textile Illustrations based on her life as a real life modern day milk girl highlighting the decline of the British Milkman and wants to highlight the producers of the milk, The Great British Farmer. She creates bespoke, nostalgic, painterly, textile illustrations inspired by her milkround; the doors she deliver too, and the people she meets.

Hannah Stoney works in watercolour to design light hearted illustrations to brighten up contemporary homes. Her portfolio now includes her own range of fabrics and British made ceramics as a nod to her Staffordshire roots. A trained screen-printer, you can also expect some one off nods to the Sock Gallery's home of Loughborough and Leicestershire.

Emily Notman's work has always combined her love for mixing stitch, clay and found objects. She experiments using traditional methods in contemporary ways by beaching, inking, burning and trapping materials to build up interesting layers of tactile surface. Emily's colour palette developed from her annual trips to a fisherman’s village in Portugal, there she would escape into a world of flaky paint and sea washed stone walls. She is inspired by weathered objects and places with a sense of story that to her are full of character - this is a subtle but key theme in Emily's work. I use paper clay, recycled fabrics, vintage haberdashery and yarns to create wearable pieces of art and bespoke interior pieces.
