"Over the last 18 months I have been developing a series of animal-headed sculptural figures, collectively called 'An English Dreamtime'.  These figures fuse my love of nature, folk, sacred and ethnographic art with more contemporary influences such as Japanese character culture and urban street art. I describe my style as 'Archaic pop' art because it blends the ancient with the modern."

Amy Stringer: 12 Brooches of Amsterdam

16th Nov 2019 - 11th January 2020

Remote: From wild storm clouds and windy shores to dark, moody eerie forests, these new expressive pieces are inspired by the artist’s love of remote places.  Especially created for The Craft Centre & Design Gallery Leeds, Lesley says;  “It’s a privilege to display my work here in a space which shows such a commitment to printmaking.”


A year long project inspired by jeweller Sarah Chapman’s annual incentives.  Yorkshire jeweller Amy is creating one brooch per month throughout 2019 as an exploration of ideas, techniques and materials.  The concepts for each piece have come from a solo trip to Amsterdam in 2018 where Amy spent three inspiring days in the beautiful city.  Each design is strongly directed by a certain material or technique that Amy wanted to explore, whilst reflecting an inspiration or emotion from her time in Amsterdam.  The collection is a step away from her usual cement filled designs, and focuses on a broad range of traditional and none traditional techniques and processes.

Phil Greenwood Print Exhibition

2nd Nov 2019 - 22nd Feb 2020



Phil is a landscape artist whose printmaking showcases the technique of etching wonderfully.  This is his first solo show in the city of Leeds.  His work is extremely economical in that he uses only two plates and two or three colours to achieve a great range of tone and colour by the depth of the etch and by over printing; fusing one colour with another.  His images do not always relate to a specific place rather he develops and works from an amalgamation of ideas recalled.
