Incurva Studio

8-10 West Street (between George Street & the seafront), Old Town, Hastings, TN34 3AN. http://theworkship.blogspot.com 01424 424422

Incurva Studios and the Work Ship are housed in a converted metal work factory in the heart of the old town, where a diverse jumble of eight Hastings artists and makers reside.

Leigh Dyer- Sculptor, creating work ranging from site specific and community based projects to gallery works and private commissions. Through his practice he aims to engage the viewer with their surroundings, encouraging them to look again or alter their association with a particular place/ site. His practice also seeks to promote a ‘please touch’ policy, enabling the viewer to engage further with the work. incurvastudios@yahoo.co.uk

Lucy Dixon- The relationships between geological landscapes and mythology have become a central theme throughout her work. Looking at a multiplicity of ways through which historical customs, folk law, tradition, narratives and nostalgia play a part within our widely secular society. lucy_dxn@hotmail.com

Alice Underhill- Alice makes brightly glazed porcelain jewellery and vases, as well as a selection of illustrative work on ceramic and watercolour paper backgrounds. Come and see her new collection of work that will be launched at this year’s Coastal Currents Open Studios Festival. mail@aliceunderhill.co.uk www.aliceunderhill.co.uk

Kate Iles- Kate makes boxes. They are made from a need to preserve a moment – a mourned dog, a dreamlike state, a snippet of conversation. Discarded artifacts, lost treasures and if you’re really lucky, tiny lights are assembled and given a new home. kateiles@talktalk.net

Lorna Crabbe- Showing a selection of hand-bound artists’ books, drawings, paintings, lino prints and objects. She also writes, curates arts projects and exhibitions, and leads workshops. Her work addresses informal collections; the homemade, domestic archives; womens’ craft history; ornithology; found objects and imagined pasts. lornacrabbe@gmail.com www.lornacrabbe.co.uk

Ed Boxall- Illustrator, book artist and Printmaker. Ed will be showing recent large-scale prints and new books: the nightmarish ‘Climb On’ and a cheerful suburban adventure: ‘Dixie Steps Out’. www.edboxall.co.uk

Mel Brewer- A unique blend of handcrafted metal based pieces and constructed images influenced by urban and environmental themes, using photography and found objects as inspiration. melbrewer@rocketmail.com

Objects by artists of Incurva Studios and the Work Ship will be available to view and buy as part of  ‘Curious Cases’, which will be touring Hastings & St Leonards throughout the festival. See: www.edboxall.co.uk/curious-cases for further information.
