Puppets created

Leona Thomas has been inspired to make these puppet characters using traditional papier mache methods of construction. She rekindled her fondness of puppets having recently come across puppets made by the artist Paul Klee.   He had made his to amuse his children grandchildren.  With their rawness and individuality Leona was struck by the fact that they seemed to break through preconceptions of what a puppet should be. She set about making these characters that can be used for a variety of story plots.  The puppets are on show at the VAN Street Gallery, Shrewsbury with further information about the inspiration behind them.

Rosie Read

Mixed media artist Rosie Read currently has a gallery stall in the Market Hall Shrewsbury where she creates a wonderful array of art. Watercolours, inks, collage, papier mache and a host of intriguing items.
