Back in June we had our first Resident Artist to Torrisdale. Kirstin Stride is an artist/craftswoman based in Brighton, she has been involved in setting up a co-operative shop selling local arts and crafts in Brighton, held craft fairs and is now focusing on producing her own work for sale through her website, etsy and private exhibitions. Torrisdale provided the perfect location for Kirstin to spend three quiet weeks, surrounded by nature, developing work for her collection of brooches, necklaces and rings based on British Birds. Kirstin found inspiration in the abundant bird life around Torrisdale from the oyster catchers by the shore to the coaltits and goldfinchs which gathered around the bird table at Glen House. Here are some of the pieces Kirstin made at Torrisdale, and if you find yourself near Brighton in the next couple of weeks pop down to Platform at the Fishing Quarter Gallery to see her and other lovely work.For example, it was awful to endure travelling. I experienced the increased panic attacks, especially when the bus was stuck in traffic or Xanax 2mg the train was blocked in the tunnel. If you are interested in becoming an Artist in Residence at Torrisdale please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Hannah –
