Marine CyanotypesInspired by the Essex coast, Jane created large cyanotype pieces as a collaboration with the sea. The non-harmful cyanotype chemicals were applied to paper and then placed on the tideline where seaweed and other flotsam were added during the developing process to create large abstract prints. Jane Stewart is a visual and community artist and storyteller based on the Essex coast, her work is rooted in nature, especially the coast, oceans, bodies of water and our relationship to them.

Walton Flax Exchange
9 November – 10 December, 2022
Walton Flax Exchange is a month-long exhibition with local artist Shane Waltener. Using flax, grown and harvested in Walton, the exhibition will display the processing of the crop from plant to linen, introducing the idea of soil-to-soil clothing - clothing made from fabric which is entirely compostable. Flax sculptures and objects will be interwoven with public activities and performances, inviting other practitioners and members of the public to skill exchange and share knowledge on the subject. The exhibition aims to generate an interest in the production of Walton fabric and create a local ‘fibershed’, a term coined by Rebecca Burgess in 2010, describing a network connecting growers, makers and consumers.Read more
