We thought we could all do with something to brighten up the winter months of January and February and bring in something to make us dream of sun and warmth! The theme for this online gallery show is simple. Something yellow! 60 CGS members were chosen for the show, highlighting varied and delightful bursts of colour using vibrant yellows within glass.

What is it that makes Farfield Mill such an intriguing and friendly place? Spend a week there and you will discover that the source if its charm is a shared love of materials, hand-made skills and, in particular, the delight in creation that we all first experienced at primary school. Manchester based artist, Alison Scott, illustrates a colourfully knit community of craft makers, a crazy festival

City living can be an eye-opening experience. Any person who has lived in a city has had a crash course in life. The city never sleeps. It is expensive and noisy with busy streets and overcrowded tube rides. Yet, it is vibrant, surprising and energetic.

Emma Dunbar: Journeys as Far and Back in the Kitchen
Event Type: Gallery Exhibition
We are delighted to welcome Emma Dunbar back for her much anticipated new solo exhibition. Emma paints in Hampshire and Cornwall. Her attraction to colour and the decorative qualities in everyday objects provide the foundation for her art. Emma works mainly on board in acrylic, occasionally incorporating collage with gold and silver leaf.
Alex McCarthy's work is inspired by the artist's fascination for touch. His tactile work is inspired by textures that surround us such as; tree bark, natural rocks, cracking paint and marine life. Each artwork is thrown and fired several times: metal oxides add depth whilst the gold, platinum and copper lustre add a sense of opulence.
