I'm Rose.  I am an Artist and Maker

Through varied work, I playfully explore and study the theory of colour and try to capture the simplicity of our love for the world we live in.
The Art I create aims to satisfy the simple human part of us that takes pleasure in small perfections like a beautiful Fallen leaf or a perfectly round stone.
I enjoy working with a number of different mediums, currently I most often with Acrylic Paint and Oil Pastels

I am currently also selling some of my art as NFTs on Rarible.

I am interested in developing more large scale colourful art installations using various mixed media in the new year.

I run workshops and host events. I'm looking forward to being able to do this at Unique Cottage Studio this year.

I teach Forest School in a couple of Primary Schools in Peterborough, as well as teaching a regular Adult LD Art class.  In my spare time, when I'm not in my Studio in Spalding, you'll find me telling stories or body painting at Festivals across the country, or walking my dog down the River.

Hello! My name is Shalini Austin and I am a self taught metalsmith. I make Copper Things. In my home studio and workshop in Stamford, Lincolnshire I work with copper sheet and wire and handcraft Sculptures, Giftware & Jewellery.
For several years I have collaborated with Felt Artist Eve Marshall and make sculptures and giftware. As a result of our art collaborations we now regularly exhibit together at events too.
I also collaborate with my husband who took up palletwood upcycling during the first lockdown in 2020 when he could not go to work. I make components for his pieces and also use a lot of palletwood stuff in my work.
During Peterborough Artists Opens studios Eve and I will be exhibiting and demonstrating at a venue possibly in Stamford. We will confirm the venue once Covid restrictions end and we are able to speak to venues again.

I am a self taught artist who loves the freedom of  using various medias in art. I am at my happiest when I find vintage items that can be incorporated into my work whether that be an old book, fabric or haberdashery.  In the current climate where we are all keen to help the environment and move away from the throw away society that the world has become my interest has turned to altering disused items from their original purpose into art works.

Fabric forms the base of much of my work along with stitch and embellishments to create art works based on nature.  My work is continually evolving and changing and now experimenting with goldwork embroidery. I also manipulate fabric and stitch to create wearable art, continually developing processes for unique items.
These small items are made from Shibori pleated silk ribbon attached to small pieces of slate collected whilst on holiday.  The silk is embellished with hand beaded detail using natural gem stones and glass beading.  The are small pendants or brooches.

Textile and mixed media artist exploring art and natural history, with particular reference to biodiversity and environmental issues. Visit the working studio and talk about ideas in development.
Initially taking a BSc in Zoology, Anita followed a career in IT, as a software developer and analyst, but after graduating with a first class degree in Stitched Textiles  she left IT, her career having gone from Science to Technology and finally Art.

This unusual path undoubtedly explains the content of her work - a fascination with the delicate balance of the natural world, the cycle of life. It reflects her concerns about the exploitation of nature and the earth's resources by man, disrupting this balance and resulting in habitat loss and accelerated climate change. This has a major impact on biodiversity, a lifelong passion. Her work with structures and forms symbolises this fragile web of connections.

Anita's process revolves around constructing sculptural forms from thread. She uses looping and knotting processes such as knitting and non traditional materials such as wire and paper thread. Research develops a narrative, another layer. For instance, her knitted plankton developed from the zoological background and computational algorithms to generate new 'mutated' life forms, representing evolutionary development. They were widely exhibited with the 'Hyperbolic Crocheted Coral Reef' despite being neither coral or crocheted.

Anita has also undertaken site-specific residencies in museums and heritage sites. Detailed research identifies stories and ideas that connect to personal themes, but the process has to be more flexible - calling on a wider skill set to make work appropriate to the site. This has included digitally printing over-scale feathers for Burghley House and a flock of birds screen printed with the poet John Clare’s handwriting for his dovecot. Although the work has a different impetus, subject matter recurrs – creatures of the sea, birds, moths, hedges, trees, text - and connections becoming increasingly visible.
