Wandsworth Open House Weekend

September 27th – October 8th
Sprout will be an open house venue for the 2 weeks spanning the Wandsworth Open House weekends programme to 4 local artists -

Valerie Taylor, Ann Funston, Lesley Martin and Caroline Jefford.
This is a brief introduction to each of the artists.
Valerie Taylor
Valerie Taylor's work has been described as 'gestural'. Specialising mainly in landscape, she is happiest perched on a hillside with not too much sun or wind, working with charcoals and watercolours.
Ann Funston
Ann Funston studied painting in the sixties and has been making stained glass for the past 20 years. She is inspired by the energetic forms and colours found within landscape - particularly of Cornwall.
Caroline Jefford
Caroline Jefford works in silver and metal and using leaf patterns as a form of inspiration for decoration. Her work is contemporary and easily wearable.
Lesley Martin
Lesley Martin mostly works with Earthstone and Porcelain Paperclay, matt glazes, oxides and underglazes, sometimes introducing “ found “ ironmongery, high temperature firing wire and ceramic transfers. The theme of animals has been a constant one in her work, and more recently she has completed many commissions of clients dogs and cats.

FYC: September Showcase


Tuesday 20th September – Saturday 24th September 2011

The members of Furzedown Youth Centre are taking over Sprout to bring you ‘FYC: September Showcase’.

This exhibition will be an opportunity for the young people of FYC to share their experience of the youth centre. From photography to t-shirt customisation, from jewelry making to website design, the members of FYC have created an exciting exhibition of work produced over the summer term and the FYC-Extra holiday club.

By bringing the creative skills of FYC members into the community, the youth centre hopes to engage with more local young people and raise awareness of Furzedown Youth Centre within the community.
