Summer Craft case

Location: City Art Gallery and Museum

Time: 10:30 - 16:30

Cost: Free

Our summer craft case is full of wondrous colour with the work of Rebecca Morgan and her mesmerising acrylic pours, alongside endearing animal copper brooches by Mandy Hollowell.

Mandy Hollowell creates fun and loveable copper brooches of all kinds of animals. In her collection you’ll find cats, dogs, birds and a wriggly worm plus fire breathing dragons and a very woolly Woolly Mammoth, especially made to complement our Ice Age exhibition.

Artist Rebecca Morgan creates fascinating work using acrylic pours over different surfaces to produce wonderful patterns and colours all swirling together looking like colourful galaxy’s or an artist’s palette. Poured onto wooden heart and butterfly shapes as wall hangings, large canvas hearts, wooden boxes, badges and greetings cards.
