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.

Lino success

Kit Byron Low is enjoying success with her latest range of hand pressed lino prints, featuring images of birds. Currently she is developing a range of cards and enjoying the challenge of 'forcing' lino to create movement in the prints!  The range includes blackbirds, terns, owls, puffins and most recently pheasants.  These are available at the VAN Street Gallery, Shrewsbury, and are rapidly flying out!  They have been the top selling card range this Spring with our visitors.
