In addition to our main co-operative group of artists, we also exhibit the work of some associate members. These are crafts-people and artists that produce a large range of beautiful items including sculpture, ceramics, and jewellery.

Rachel Stowe
Hand printed Textiles and Jewellery

Rachel Stowe began her training at Herefordshire Art College and completed an HND in Textiles and Fashion. In 1997, she started her own business, where she produces unique hand-painted and printed silk and velvet accessories. She experiments with various techniques, including devore, dye reduction, wax resist, screen printing, and hand painting. She gained an MA in textiles in 2001 at Birmingham University and followed that with a Cert Ed in 2006.

Rachel Stowe is constantly developing her work, which is widely exhibited through galleries and the Guild of Gloucestershire Craftsman, The Worcestershire Guild of Designer Craftsmen, and, more recently, the Cornwall Craft Association.
