Exhibition- Alison Scott "A Week at Farfield"

Event Type: Gallery Exhibition
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 Life

Event Type: Gallery Exhibition
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.
The exhibition presents work by Mychael Barratt, Clare Caulfield, Helen Chatterton, Janet Curley Cannon and many more.

Maker in Focas: Alex McCarthy

Event Type: Gallery Exhibition
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.
