I am an artist and a founder-sculptor
Alice Andrea Ewing is an artist and a founder-sculptor with a foundry and studio in Suffolk. She studied Art History at Cambridge University before training to cast in the Italian or Renaissance Lost Wax process. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, collaborated with fashion label Loewe, and produced commissions for Aldourie Castle, The Newt in Somerset and Soho Farmhouse. In 2015 she established The Portable Foundry Project, designing creative educational programmes to encourage confidence in young people through engagement with sculpture and foundry activities. She has also designed and delivered a number of well-being and mental health programmes connected to the Arts. These include pilot programmes for Suffolk Art Link and NHS Primary Care Personalised Care Programmes. She has Mental Health first aid training and a foundation in Psychotherapy and Counselling.
Michelle Brace
Digital artist and visual mixer
I describe my work as digital mixed media. I use all kinds of things as visual source material including moving image, natural materials, collage, mark making, text and photographic textures to build colourful visual compositions. I've recently been collaborating with dancers, musicians and other visual artists to make studio based work and work for live performance and projection. I often work with communities producing and facilitating projects and have a current emphasis on developing my creative practice to support mental health and well-being.
When your mentor provides a strapline it will go here
I am passionate about getting young people into the libraries through creative purposes. I believe that libraries are a safe community space for all.

Cancellation Policy
Free bookings do not require refunds but as places are limited, please cancel if you cannot attend so that your place can be offered to someone else.

My experience consists of a leisure activity, on a specific date(s), and therefore the 14-day ‘cooling off period’ under the Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 does not apply.
