Artists in the exhibition include bead knitting designs created by the artist Jan Truman on her favourite 1970’s knitting machine.
“The distinctive ‘ jewel-like’ quality of my work is created on an old knitting machine, using a traditional process known as ‘Bead-knitting’. Each handmade original starts life as a single strand of coloured wire, pre- threaded with beads, which I knit into shapes. Gradually as the individual glass beads link to form the structure, its surface is transformed with a colour-rich texture that shimmers in the light”. – Jan Truman

“I have been painting for a long time, started painting as a form of therapy just over twelve years ago when diagnosed with leukaemia, The NHS and my art have given me my longevity, at the onset I was a prolific painter as the years go on I’m painting less as I’m spending more time fighting my illness’s.
I am a lover of colour; I have tried most mediums but prefer oil paints. I also like experimenting. My love is abstracts but I’m told on good authority that I will be remembered for my heart pictures, I painted a picture for an exhibition of hearts as a tribute to my friends.” – Philip Ledbury
