Ever since she was young, Martha Copeland has loved to draw. Alongside sign writing, set & banner painting for various theatre, circus & illusion shows, costume making, screen printing clothes for her clothing label Caravan and presenting a sideshow of fortunes tellers with Bear Gateaux (a Suffolk based creative collective set up by Martha and a life-long friend), she squeezes in as much of it as possible and also paints pictures too.
Sticking to a set of rules and her favourite colour palette, Martha Copeland create pictures inspired by female goddess type entities and wild animals. Characters from another world or a parallel universe, combining elements of nature with a cosmic edge. Mixing geometric shapes and patterns with organic forms. Her work is strong and bold, vibrant and meticulous, influenced by Parisian street art, Japenese pop art, vintage posters and tattoo art.
When: Private View 6:30–8:30pm, Thursday 1st May (wine and refreshments will be available)

By popular demand, lovely crochet-guru Sanna is back with an intermediate class, making crochet egg cosies to brighten up the breakfast table! Basic crochet skills are required for this class, as it may be a little tricky for complete beginners. If you are a beginner, or need a reminder of the basic stitches, we would advise that you arrive 30mins earlier (Wednesday 5.30pm or Saturday 11.30am) for an extra £5 to be paid in the shop upon arrival. Eggcosies are a great introduction to crocheting 3D shapes, and you can pick from a variety of patterns, including stripes, zigzags and bobbles or a selection of textured wools that will create interesting, fuzzy, bumpy or loopy surfaces. Absolute beginners welcome, we will teach you all the stitches you need to know. Wool and materials will be provided, but feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
Join Maya for a social evening of knitting and fun. Bring your wool and needles, and let us knit together. All skill levels welcome!
We’ll provide wine and snacks, and we’ll offer 10% off all yarns on the evening.
