Gill Hobson

Gill Hobson is an internationally renowned artist who works in glass and light. We are delighted that she has lent us a couple of her delightful sculptures for you to enjoy. Artist Gillian Hobson creates artworks to lose and find yourself in - light and space, time and duration, colour, surface and texture are key aspects of her work. From immersive light installations to one off sculptures, her works act as sites of pause, inviting viewers to engage with their physical and psychological experience of colour, light, pattern and form. Her company, Studio Six, specialises in bespoke pieces

Tulu Draws

  So this year you may have noticed the lovely stylised artwork we have for Festival 8.  We had help from a great Grimsby based artist and designer, Sonia, a.k.a Tulu Draws.  Do have a look at her work, each piece is lovingly created and I know from talking with her that she is often reluctant to let them go out into the world.  Sonia loves to know that they will be going to good homes, this is art with genuine heart.  Enjoy.     ‘Tulu Draws’ is the alter ego of Lincolnshire illustrator and designer Sonia Whitehead. Sonia fulfilled

Hippy Henna

Festival 8 met Carly at one of the other festivals at Cabourne Parva and when we saw what she did, we thought her services would make a wonderful addition to the festival, bringing some of her beautiful body art to your skin..... I have been a freelance henna artist now for more than 3 years, all my work is freehand and designed by myself. I have always had a love for art and design and henna allows me to create stunning designs which can be shared. Henna is much more than a form of body art – it’s about celebration, transition,

Abbey Walk Gallery in the Well House

As a celebration of the senses Festival 8 wanted to create a site that is beautiful to look at, with many things to see and enjoy.  As part of the celebration of sight we also wanted to work with visual artists to do a bit more.  We knew about a local independent gallery that shared our vision for the arts, they have been a flag ship for quality work and a focal point that has raised the visual arts game in Lincolnshire.  We were delighted when they agreed to run a gallery space in the wonderful quirky space that is

Freyeesha Hall – Fantasy and Faerie Artist

Freyeesha was the first artist to contact us and her theme of fantasy and Faerie fitted well with Festival 8. I have been painting for as long as I can remember, creating mystery and magickal beings that if you are lucky to see them, you are blessed. I had an idea to turn these images into paintings so everyone could see the beauty that surrounds us, reachable through the layers of mysticism. I bring to you for your delight, Faeries, Dryads, Gods and Goddesses, spiritual beings that surround each flower, plant and tree, Images are available as prints and greetings cards. Allow a
