Shelley Hankins & Nick Church

May 2016
Shelley Hankins showed her vibrant floral batiks and watercolours. Shelley says:

"I am fascinated by the natural world around me, with its diverse colours and marks, emerging and interconnecting.  My work tries to create this by employing the batik technique, and I watch as the rich textures and colours begin to reveal their own landscape within my subject, formed by the wax and silk paper.”

Shelley offers workshops for those wishing to learn this beautiful and effective painting technique for beginners and those with some painting experience. She also takes commissions. You can contact Shelley on tel 01458 445042


Nick Church is another familiar face here, exhibiting his colour photographs taken around Bristol. He has also shown his "creative, contemporary & cliche-free" photography in our café. Here's a lovely image of flowers in St Nick's Market, central Bristol.

All Nick's prints are for sale and you can see more of his work on his website here
