SALLY WIGGLESWORTH - STUDIO 3

Repeats every day until Sun Jul 07 2019.
6 Jul 2019 -
11:00  to 1 8:00

Sally Wigglesworth, sculptress & textile restorer.

Sally Wigglesworth graduated from Maidstone College of Art in the 70s and is a former 'Wrapping Wall' artist.

I am seeking, by a renewed contemporary interest in the figurative, to explore and reflect upon the solitary and spiritual nature of man.

The absence of narrative features and specific gender is intended to create a universal and timeless quality to better explore the architecture of the human form and psyche.

Opening hours 11am - 6pm 6 & 7 July

No wheelchair access to studio but Gallery and Sculpture Garden accessible.

PAULINE HAWES - STUDIO 4 

Repeats every day 2 times.
20 Jul 2019 -
11:00  to  18:00

Pauline Hawes, painter & printmaker


Inspired by the human form, my drawings attempt to capture the landmarks of the body interpreting both the surface and the underlying and internal anatomy. I have further explored these interiors through my printmaking using a range of techniques both traditional and contemporary. Working with different textile materials and felt-making, I have made sculptural forms that may echo those produced in nature to fashion into corsages, brooches and hats.
I am passionate about needless waste and the sustainability of materials and make items and garments from pre-used fabric and materials, of both vintage and utility origin, remodelling into wearable adornments or more domestic applications.

Pauline's Studio is open from 11am - 6pm as part of Cambridge Open Studios July 20 - 21
