Student’s artwork goes on show

A STUDENT artist from Nettlebed will be showing her work in the village on Sunday.

A STUDENT artist from Nettlebed will be showing her work in the village on Sunday.

The one-off exhibition by 19-year-old Beth Savage runs from 11am to 1pm at the Life in Nettlebed interiors shop in the High Street.

The shop, which is based at the old church hall, is normally closed on Sundays, but owners Sue Beales and Karen D’Arcy offered the space to Beth, who had previously worked there  part-time.

A former pupil of Nettlebed School, Gillotts and The Henley College, Beth is currently reading for a BA in contemporary art practice at Bath Spa University, specialising in mixed media textiles and 2D.

Having lived in Spain for three years, including a spell in Barcelona, Beth has a passion for Bohemian Moroccan and ethnic styling. Much of her work is decorative and she has been experimenting with screen printing, pattern, decorative and colour work, having recently drawn inspiration from a visit to the Majorelle Garden in Marrakesh, Morocco, last year.



Sunday’s show forms part of the professional practice requirement of Beth’s honours degree course.

The Field Kitchen café and deli, which is also based at the old church hall, will be open at the time of the exhibition.
