Justine Moss is an artist living in Ipswich. Her current research explores garments being discarded in narrative film, through drawing.

In this workshop attendees will make multiple drawn responses to an item of clothing, using a range of approaches; Thinking about clothes as intimate and mundane,  practical and decorative, malleable and tactile, open to other interpretations but never quite losing their association with the body and the wearer.

Saturday 23rd July / Annabel Dover

Through a variety of media including painting, photography, video, cyanotype, and drawing, Annabel Dover engages the viewer in untold tales of wonder. Throughout her practice she finds herself drawn to objects and the invisible stories that surround them. Through their subtle representation she explores their power as intercessionary agents that allow socially acceptable emotional expression. The work presents itself as a complex mixture of scientific observation and tender girlish enthusiasm

Dover was born in Liverpool and educated in Newcastle and London. Her PHD at Chelsea College of Art explored a practice-led response to the cyanotype albums of Anna Atkins and forms the basis for her novel Florilegia, published by MOIST. She has exhibited her work nationally and internationally.
