and resourcefulness that can be shown in the face of extreme adversity, and founder member Lynda Radford, will be showing upcycled work, including wonderful commissioned pieces from South Africa created by artists with very limited resources and using these resources in the most delightful ways.
A selection of fine art, jewellery and arts and crafts is set to transform the old pet shop on Lower Borough Walls, Bath into an Aladdin's cave of unique and beautiful pieces for sale.
Old pet shop is a showcase for new arts and crafts ideas
The group believes passionately in celebrating community and the environment, which manifests itself in a significant amount of beautifully recycled and upcycled work on display, and a welcoming stance towards new artists wanting to join in and showcase their work.
In keeping with these surroundings, the artists will be raising funds to support the work of Bath Cats and Dogs Home (through donations on sales of artwork and raising public awareness of its work).
There is also a commitment to maximising the potential appreciation of otherwise underused buildings, which has included book launching and poetry reading during the course of previous exhibitions.
Inspiration is to be found in the old pet shop site itself, previously a church built and paid for by the local community.
Exhibitors include Willa Ashworth, the creator of beautiful garden metalworks designed to complement their natural surroundings, Sam Onyechi, still a student and yet able to find the time to create stunning jewellery, lampshades, paintings and bowls using plastics and wire, Aurora Pozniakow, a glass and ceramics artist, very much inspired by the natural world, Sadie Womersley, a jeweller who sources her beads and stones from all around the world, Rebecca Shields, master of re definition through the upcycling and transformation of objects and Laura Izaguirre, who creates innovative pieces using recycled books and mixed media.
fifth show for some core members, who met as mature students at the City College of Bath.
The huge space, over two floors, with loads of natural Miu Miu Smu54s light, is the perfect venue in which to celebrate community, diversity and the creation of something new and wonderful out of no longer wanted materials.
Starting as a way of testing out their talents, the first show was an instant success and led to an increase in the diversity of the work shown as more local artists have joined the group over time.
