Caversham Arts Trail is back!

About the trail

After 2 years of not being able to run the trail due to the Covid pandemic, we are delighted that the Caversham Arts Trail is back running again this year. Plus it’s their 10th anniversary! We have all missed it terribly, but this year we are so excited as we will also be joining the trail as a host.

Over two weekends pop along to the venues on the trail map and enjoy meeting local artists and seeing their amazing work. There will be 48 artists featured on the trail across Caversham & Emmer Green.

Creativ.Spaces Art Studio & Event Spaces will host 5 local artists & a selection of their work, for the whole duration of the trail. We can’t wait to welcome you to the studio for a browse over a cuppa and cake (optional donation to the Ukraine appeal).

When is it?

The trail runs across 2 weekends:

14th & 15th May

21st & 22nd May

The studio will be open between 11am – 5pm

Debbie Page – Professional Potter

Debbie is an experienced potter with many years of teaching adults from beginners and onwards. She predominantly uses hand-building techniques to form her own work, e.g pinching, coiling and slab building although she does occasionally throw on the wheel. Debbie’s work is inspired by the ceramics of Korea and Japan – strong simple forms with lively glazes and different firing methods.

Debbie is very keen to pass on her enthusiasm for pottery and ceramics – She likes to show people that with simple techniques they can make something they can be proud of. Debbie firmly believes creativity to be essential for the human soul and that everyone is capable of being creative – you just have to find to right thing for you!

Karen Collette Tomalin – Contemporary Textile Artist

Karen started machine sewing in 2014 when she was shown the basic techniques by a friend, her hobby has since taken off and evolved into a passion. Karen loves free motion quilting and creative piecing. She creates unique hand crafted bed quilts or wall hangings, fabric appliqué and stitched pictures.

In 2018 Karen started to exhibit her work of pieces she had created for fun or for friends and family. She was so surprised by the response and reaction of people who came, or wandered in, that she has continued to exhibit her work and taken commissions.

Karen’s work evolves from the patterns and colour found in nature. She is inspired by the German Expressionists, Fauvists and Matisse and revels in strong colour and bold shapes.

Andrew Field – Pencil & Watercolour Artist

As a local artist Andrew likes to discover the nature of a place through its shapes and textures. This inspiration can range from the rich architectural carvings in local historic buildings, providing a treasure trove of antiquity which he likes to sketch and paint in watercolour.

From the natural beauty of the Chiltern countryside, to the small wonders that visit our gardens, nature provides much inspiration. From the swooping Kites to the darting flash of the Kingfisher by the river bank, Andrew likes to capture their grace and fleeting colours. The visiting squirrels and garden birds, have recently focused his interest in natures smaller creatures and their many shapes and forms, which Andrew captures in graphite pencil.
