Bangle Jewellery

Bangle Jewellery was established in 2009 by Brenda Harding and Angela Tiley.

We decided to incorporate our love of colour and fashion into designing a range of hand-made jewellery.

We work with freshwater pearls, lampwork beads, semi-precious stones and sterling silver to produce pieces

which are unique and affordable.

By working together we are able to exchange ideas to enhance our creativity.

Helen Carlile

I was taught to knit by my grandmother and enjoy creating a range of knitwear in a wide variety of textures materials. I am currently making ruffle and loopy scarves as well as wraps and shrugs in a wide range of colours. All my products are suitable for people who cannot wear wool and can be machine washed.

I also enjoy making preserves and using home grown produce to provide fresh, tasty, preservative and additive free jams and chutneys. This year I has been fantastic for apples hence the wide range of apple based jellies and chutneys.

Helen Mortimer

My paintings on silk are initially inspired by architectural drawings from travels around the UK and abroad, in particular to Spain. They then form the ideas for more abstract work, where architectural elements are deconstructed and reconstructed, in some instances also in repeat.

Giclée is the process of making fine art prints from original work. These limited edition prints are high quality, using colours faithful to the original silk painting.

I run workshops in and around Newbury, at the Corn Exchange, Shaw House and Sandham, National Trust. Contact me for more details, or the Bookings offices.

Helen Williams


My interest in working in ceramics has derived from my other passion, dogs.  The wonderful Afghan potter, June Leach, when I was visiting her, in her studio, handed me a piece of clay and said “now make a Saluki”  Her next comments were to attend classes and learn how  to do things properly.  So many years ago I wandered into Jane Baike’s classes and now I am a student of Chris Lack.

Today my passions are not limited to dogs as many of my pieces are either of chickens, hares, fish or even the occasional frog, often as you have never seen them before.

I have exhibited my pottery at The Kennel Club, Clarges Street, Piccadilly, London and many of my photographs have appeared in magazines and books.

Jo Arkell

Following a 3 year Arts degree majoring in Ceramics and an apprenticeship at a production pottery in South Africa, I opened my first studio in Durban, firing a self-built oil/gas kiln. After moving to Germany in 1974, to study Industrial Ceramics at the HBK, I started my second studio making stoneware and porcelain production pots. In 1980 a friend and I opened the very successful ‘Galerie der Kunsthandwerker’ exhibiting top British and European Modern Ceramics and Glass artists in Hamburg, which left little time for my own work so in 1988 I left Hamburg for the warm and sunny climes of South Africa to start another production pottery, this time with a large self built gas kiln. Due to a devastating accident in 1998, it was impossible to continue the demanding physical work of a potter, so I sidestepped into the world of glass having the opportunity of learning lampwork and working in the studio of maestro Davide Penso on the island of Murano, Venice. Glass is a fascinating medium to work with as it has colour, transparency, is versatile and has many properties similar to clay.

The call of the clay eventually meant that I am back on the potter’s wheel and fire to 1300⁰C in another self built gas kiln to make useful items to use and enjoy, and making beads that are enhancing to wear and to treasure. If you get the same pleasure from my work, then I have achieved my goal.

Moving to Smannell in Hampshire, I have opened two very small studios making pots and glass beads, set on sterling silver. Due to limited access the studio is only opened to the public by appointment.

I inherited my love of embroidery from my grandmother, -  for many years I taught city and guilds embroidery and computer aided design.


I started studying glass as part of a project on transparency and became "hooked".


The whole process of inspiration, design and experimentation through to the finished piece is something I enjoy whether in either embroidery or glass.

Nick Atkins

I have been a keen photographer for over 25 years.  I was originally a biologist by education, and spent hours out and about, which was when I discovered landscape photography.  I am by no means a professional photographer, however am very interested in sharing my passion for landscapes and showing both some attractive local scenes that I think people take for granted, and places further afield. You don’t need to go far to find some very picturesque locations. All of the photographs are taken and processed by myself.

I show prices for standard print sizes, but can offer other sizes on request, which would require more time for printing.

Prints can be posted or, if more local I can deliver.

Upon retirement I took a foundation diploma in art as a mature student
Although I love to paint, my first love is ceramics.
Whether I am producing a piece of studio pottery or an animal sculpture texture is important to me
Each piece is individual, some pieces are glazed whilst others are not, and I like to experiment with different clays.

The beauty of nature still inspires me as I visit different areas of 
England, the skies of Norfolk, hills of Cumbria, and granite coast of 
Cornwall, with water in it's various forms continuing to seep into much 
of my work. I try to capture the dramatic atmosphere in oils and acrylic 
as the light and colours change through the seasons.

Artist Details - Sally Courage

For the last few years I have had the opportunity to work from home and open my own gallery at Red Steps. I joined Newbury Open Studios in 2010 and have thoroughly enjoyed exhibiting with other artists.

My principal passion is with form. I love making organic pots, often quite large. At various times these pots have turned into versions of the female form and wild fowl.  Recently I have been experimenting with more surface decoration to complement the form and blend with the natural world.

The items listed are examples of my work. Please contact me for further information and details.

Simon Ball

I have been taking photos since the age of 9 years when my Gran gave me a Brownie box camera of about 1920 vintage!.

After leaving school and earning my own money I bought an SLR camera taking mainly black & white pictures, developing and printing in my bedroom. Later with the advent of better cameras and good quality colour slide film, I furthered my hobby amassing a vast collection of slides.

In 2002 wanting to take my hobby further I went to college evening classes taking a City & Guilds photography course. Over the next three years I studied seven modules in different aspects of photography gaining six distinctions & one credit which qualified me for an LRPS from the Royal Photographic Society.

After college I joined Hungerford Camera Club and am currently the competition secretary. My main area of interest is fine art landscape photography which combines my love of photography and wild places.

My love of photography is being out the landscape and capturing an image to best of my ability and then presenting it as a printed photograph that conveys the image that I wanted to show. With the advent of digital photography you have to try just that bit harder because all the world and his dog has a means of taking a snap whether it be camera or phone. I try and keep the Photoshop element to a minimum so retain the integrity of the image.

I also mount & frame my work as well as doing mounting & framing for other people.

I will accept commissions that I feel I can do justice to.

Teresa Munn

I love the tactile nature of the ceramic surface.  After learning from Chris Lack over many years, I studied at UCA Farnham and  completed an MA in Ceramics.  I like to experiment with clay and take it in different directions.

My work has been inspired by long walks along the south coast beaches and in our beautiful local countryside.  I am interested in how we perceive and interact with landscapes past and present.

I am currently exploring the use of poetry and texts in my ceramics, with clay scripted wall pieces and 3D objects.

My latest work is on display at Ceramic Art Whitway, open Wednesdays 11am to 4pm, and by appointment.
