21 East Gardens, Ditchling, BN6 8ST

Open 11 – 5 every weekend in May and both bank holiday Mondays

Studio21 is the home and studio of Bernadina Lloyd. This year, she is delighted to be joined by four other artists, collectively showing paintings, drawings, prints, collages, assemblages, original handmade cards, ceramic vessels and wall pieces, stone sculptures, plant containers, decorative garden pieces, gold and silver jewellery and fascinating unique creatures with more than a hint of edginess.

All five are fully committed, practising artists in Sussex and have extensive and broadranging teaching experience. Please see individual details to discuss workshop bookings.

Bernadina Lloyd
Painting, assemblage, collage, prints, drawings and unique handmade cards.
Bernadina’s work is always rooted in observation, layers of history or the conflict between the natural and manmade, whether that is pure life drawing or abstract painting and collage. Her paintings often reveal elements of a journey or places visited, and her assemblages reveal her magpie nature for collecting found objects.

Judy Dwyer
Mixed media and textile creatures.
Judy’s animal creations are made from recycled metal and hand-painted velvet. The contrasting materials frequently suggest an ambiguous element, which may contradict the viewer’s first impressions.

Elaine Sheppard Bolt
Based in Sussex, Elaine’s work includes thrown and hand-built vessels and wall pieces in porcelain and stoneware. Many of her pieces are combined with found objects, all within a neutral colour palette.

Jenny Turtill
Jewellery and garden sculpture
Jenny specialises in cuttlefish casting to create intricate surface textures in silver, bronze and gold, often combined with precious stones. Her garden sculptural pieces in steel and bronze also feature cuttlefish casting and add extra interest to flower beds.

Will Spankie
Sculpting in stone, Will’s work reflects his interest in geometric structures, patterns, symmetry and proportion, found both in nature and in the unfolding of numbers in space. He is also a master letter carver. Will undertakes public and private commissions for sculpture, garden ornament and lettering.
