  • 25th May 2024 - 25th May 2024

Learning techniques of embossing and repousse, you’ll be taken through the process of creating a lettered plaque that’s rich in both contour and texture.

All materials and light refreshments will be provided.

Rebecca Stark is a local artist who graduated with a BA Hons in Wood, Metal, Ceramics and Plastics at the University of Brighton. Since then Rebecca’s love of creating art has been a constant. Rebecca thrives on the challenges of working in two very different disciplines – designing and making metal clocks, and creating mixed-media layered paintings.
