Event Details

Land of Oak & Iron are excited to host the next of our regular ‘Meet the Maker‘ events at the Heritage Centre in Winlaton Mill.  Our next Meet the Maker event is with Beth Huttly.

Beth is a local Artist and Art Tutor based in the North East and has over 10 years of experience teaching art in prisons, schools/colleges and running community workshops.

Beth specialises in ceramics and has an MA in Glass & Ceramics at The National Glass Centre, Sunderland, where her studio is currently based. Beth also has a focus on Fimo, (polymer clay) which she uses to create her “Little Shroom” mushroom houses and jewellery products.

During the pandemic Beth launched ‘Fungi-Fashion’; a company housing all things mushroom related, from clothing and tote-bags to postcards and art-prints. Mushrooms/Fungi play a big influence in Beth’s work, as well as being inspired by nature, Beth bases a lot of her creations on fungi she finds, which are combined with a fantasy element to bring her creations to life.

In 2020 Beth and her Artist partner formed Huttly and Welch Creations – an art platform to house public and private commissions, workshops, exhibitions and events. They were commissioned by North Tyneside Council to create a 6ft x 6ft sculpture of a seal, which is currently touring the North East Coastlines (starting in Whitley Bay and ending up in the Boroughs). The sculpture is to raise environmental awareness of pollution on our beaches and the damage this does to Marine life, a topic Beth is most passionate about.

Recently Beth has been creating works using sea-glass and broken pieces of ceramics. These materials have been naturally sourced and collected from local beaches, fields and various landscapes. Beth loves the natural and recycling process, promoting the idea that all materials can be reused and formed into something beautiful, giving them new life and purpose.

Come and meet Beth at her ‘Meet the Maker’ event and help to support local artists and makers.

Some of Beth’s creations are also available to purchase for a limited period in the Heritage Centre shop for the 2 weeks running up to her in person event day.

‘Meet the Maker’ will be outside under cover of the gazebo unless the weather is cold/rainy – in which case it will be situated in the foyer area inside the Heritage Centre.
