This year at Quarr Abbey John Steggles of What Knot Crafts is hosting an exhibition of his work. John works with found objects such as drift wood and rope to make some very original items for the house and garden using different techniques including knotting and macramé. He also uses cord and braid to make smaller items such as key rings, brooches and bracelets. He is always open to new ideas and commissions.
He is pleased to be joined by Ruth Herbert of Cards by Ruth, an artist from Yarmouth.
It was when she retired to the Island in 2006 that Ruth took up her hobby again. It was the clean air, scenery, interesting buildings & wildlife which prompted the revival. Her artwork depicts landmarks on the Island, also animals, birds and flowers. Some are used to produce cards, postcards, notepads and limited edition prints.
Ruth has recently completed a major commission and gives small class teaching in her own home.
He is also welcomes Pauline Evans with her kiln formed glass which is inspired by the coastline, flora and fauna of her surroundings. She has a large range of both decorative and functional pieces including coasters, bowls and wall hangings.
