The Gloobah House, at 22a The Drove, Brighton, has been opening its doors to the public during the Brighton Festival for 3 years. The exhibitors are a mixed bunch, and the work includes metalwork and jewellery, collage textile art, painting, photographs, sculpture and glasswork, prints, drawings, jewellery made from recycled materials, scarves, baby items and hand-made cards.
At the Maker Faire, Sandy Walsh, jewellery maker and animator, will be giving the public hands on experience of making jewellery from tubing, filled with beautiful beads and sparkly bits, and Ros Lymer will be giving people the chance to customise their very own fabric birdy brooch or key fob.
Sandy and Ros will also have their own work on show and for sale. Sandy’s intricate jewellery involves etching, silversmithing and delicate wire work. Ros’ textile artworks are constructed from fragments of hand dyed and printed fabrics, transferred images and embroidered forms, using vibrant colours and layered images.
