Nicola Turner utilises print and her work focuses on the concept of the locket to reflect the sensitive nature of change.

Carole Griffiths creates sculpture using a variety of materials including latex, black clay, plastic and focuses on the Knife, Fork and Spoon as well as Scissors. Her work encapsulates the relationship between the object and its uses and sense of place.
Elaine Whitehead has produced a series of layered photographs and sounds that demonstrate hard work and hard labour.
