Liz James Exhibition, The Workshop

Elizabeth paints with watercolour, acrylic and oils, in a fluid, expressive style to portray the atmosphere of a place and time rather than topographical detail.

Mid-Tide web

She also likes to incorporate other materials and mediums and often use charcoal, pastel, wax and sand to enhance and bring another dimension to her paintings.

East Anglia’s landscape is the main inspiration for her artistic practice with it’s vast stretches of coast and wide open skies. She is also interested in the way the weather and changing seasons mark the passage of time and affect the mood of the land, sea and sky.

Elizabeth completed a BA Hons. in Fine Art in the 1980’s at Stourbridge in the West Midlands and, after several years working for Bosch Lawn and Garden in a sales and marketing role, returned to study successfully for an MA in Fine Art at the Norwich University of the Arts in 2009. She is now working full-time as an artist.

The exciting flavour combinations are amazingly versatile…

Luscious Passionfruit & Lemon Curd is velvety and tangy passionfruit and lemon heaven. It tastes great with ice cream, on pancakes or with scones and cream.

With fresh zingy lime and a hint of mint, Luxurious Lime & Mint Curd is the perfect addition to pancakes and Greek yoghurt or rippled into whipped cream.

Deeply coloured and bursting with fruit and a hint of aniseed, Heavenly Blackcurrant & Star Anise Curd works wonderfully as a spread, or mixed into smoothies, yoghurt and cream.

Opulent Orange Zesty Curd is rich and tangy with honeyed overtones. It is delicious as a filling for tartlets, whipped into cream or on crumpets.

Kingsley Thompson Exhibition

I first started seriously stitching about ten years ago, whilst living in Devon. I gained the Diploma in Creative Embroidery under the tutelage of Madeleine Millington in about 2006.


Having returned to East Anglia, I recently completed the Certificate in Machine Embroidery with Annette Morgan.

My main interests lie in fabric dyeing (snow dyeing is very exciting!), printing on fabric and freehand machine embroidery. I use old Indian print blocks or make my own lino -cuts for printing. These are the techniques I most employ in my work. Having been lucky enough to live in two very beautiful areas of the country, I base most of my pieces on the natural world.

Warner Edwards Gin Tasting

Come to the Food Hall for a tasting of Gin from Warner Edwards.


“We are Warner Edwards. Great friends and craft distillers, we carefully and lovingly create beautiful artisan spirits.

From a 200 year old converted barn on our farm in the quaint village of Harrington, Northamptonshire, Curiosity, our magnificent copper pot still works her magic.

She takes our farms’ pure, natural spring water, grain spirit, home-grown elderflower, plus ten other secret botanicals, and transforms them into a fantastically smooth and aromatic dry gin.

Each batch is small, and every single bottle is carefully handcrafted by us, from the filling to the wax seal and label finishing. W.E. think it’s pretty special and best served with friends.”

Sara Philpott Exhibition

Based in mid-Wales, Sara is a painter and print maker exhibiting mainly in London and selected Welsh galleries.


Much of her print making work has been published with private presses and her original prints use innovative monotype techniques, combined with etching and relief printing. Printing is seen as a means of applying ink to paper from a painter’s point of view: printmaking strongly influences Sara’s painting both compositionally and in terms of multi-layering.

‘Running with Scissors’ Exhibition, The Workshop

An exhibition from a textile art group.

Bossy Bird By Delia Cecil web

Our gang of four, Delia, Jane, Jan & Jenny wanted to be and remain as a small, close working group of friends, as we see this as the best way to support our common aims as a mutually respectful and like minded whole. As a group we meet once a month to gain advice and opinions of our work in progress and offer each other an impersonal and objective critique; meetings also help us focus on progressing or finishing work in order to meet our monthly deadline.

All four members work in different ways, having different interests and styles, but we are loosely of a mixed-media textile discipline. Being together in a group and as friends helps us to strive to improve our workmanship; we hope the level of attention to detail is demonstrated in the execution and finish of our work.

Jason is best known for his stunning landscapes which capture the beauty of his local Suffolk countryside in dynamic and compelling images.

His latest photographic subject is livestock. These too are captured in beautiful Suffolk locations and have the same attention and quality that all Jason’s other work has.

Jason’s infra-red photography first brought him to attention; his skillful use of this intriguing format marking him out as one to watch.

This level of precise technique along with Jason’s innate ability to pick out interesting and powerful composition and the ability to create evocative and charismatic images is found across all of the photographic mediums that Jason produces in: infra-red, colour and monochrome.

Horizon Light: paintings by Rupert Beswarick-Asser, The Workshop

Recent paintings of sunsets and sea-light, by Rupert, a Woodbridge-based artist and tutor.

View Across Whitstable Bay

Rupert’s paintings, mostly depicting coastal scenes, represent a creative journey. He uses oils, applied in layers of translucent glazes and touches of opaque paint: built up, rubbed away and overlaid again to create rich complexities of depth and colour — making the process as important as the finished artwork.

A frequent comment is that Rupert’s paintings are invested with a feeling of reflection and tranquility. Perhaps the time it takes to complete each picture—typically several months, re-working and refining them—is the reason why.
