  • Janine Partington: Maker in Focus

    • Saturday, 28 July 2018 - Saturday, 8 September 2018
    • Location: New Ashgate Gallery, Farnham, Surrey
    • Cost: Free admission

    Bristol-based designer-maker Janine Partington combines the traditional craft of enamelling with fresh, clean, contemporary designs in her latest showcase at the New Ashgate Gallery.

    Grasses___Janine_Partington_2017___vitreous_enamel_on_copper_panel_1Enamelling is the art of fusing glass onto metal. Janine's work is created mainly using the technique of dusting powdered vitreous enamel over hand-cut stencils onto copper then fired at a temperature of 800°C.

    As the metal cools, the true colours of the panel emerge. It takes multiple short firings to create a finished piece of work, and whilst her years of experience in mastering her skill can shape the outcome, so much of enamelling and the final artwork are left to the mercy of the material itself.

    The New Ashgate Gallery is pleased to present Janine’s new collection of hand-carved leather; a bold new direction for Janine as a part of her recent MA studies which we’re delighted to show.

    Janine takes inspiration from the shape of things around her. In particular she is inspired by trees, flowers, leaves and seed heads, their inherently graphic lines and shapes within. Exploiting the sensitive relationship between the copper and enamel is at the heart of her work. Janine is constantly playing with the materials, seeing where they can take her.

    Enamel is a versatile, durable, strong and impervious material which is well-suited for every room in the home or workspace from kitchen to bathroom, from washroom to boardroom. The inherent qualities of the enamel, its sheen and interplay with light bring something new and very tactile into a living space.

    Xplorer is the perfect outdoor activity for primary and pre-school children and their families.

    Xplorer is a family friendly navigation challenge that is educational and fun and gives children a sense of adventure as they explore the park to find the markers. It involves a healthy mix of physical activity and decision making that the whole family can enjoy together.

    Using a simple map the aim is to find a number of markers that are located around the park. At each marker children need to identify what is pictured and enjoy learning a fun fact to tell their friends.
