Create Space

Create Space - Art Studio in Wirksworth, Derbyshire

Due to other work commitments, I am unable to guarantee being open on Saturdays. Before making a special trip to visit me, please check here, my facebook page image or Google my Business listing.

My creative workshop and studio in the beautiful market town of Wirksworth!
I have joined up with Upcycled Creative to bring you a permanent display of contemporary art and craft, ideal to browse for your interiors, offices and your gift giving needs.
The studio is home to my glass fusing workshop, where I will teach you to make your own glass art and accessories, as well as hosting other tutors for a public workshop programme. 
Come and explore all things handmade by my selected makers.

Face coverings are optional when entering the gallery, although distance allows you to browse while I hang back, I am happy to have my mask at the ready to answer questions and safely wrap any goodies you may want to buy.

Stevie Davies Glass

Feel free to check out my About Me page to read a little about my arts practice and follow me on social media for an insight into my day to day life.

As for the reasons why Create Space exists, well, I am lucky enough to have met many inspirational artists over the years.  My 14 years as a maker have also been filled, part time, working in independent art galleries, museums and theatres, as well as within groups of artists, curating exhibitions, hosting events and programming creative workshops with various artists.

The art world can be a small one, there are links everywhere and everything I do seems to build connections with others. I value the ability to be able to support and shine a light on the talented makers that I am honoured to know.

Please support your indepedant makers, a like, a follow a share…. and a purchase of their work or a booking on a workshop means a lot to us!

Anisha Parmar

Inspired by her own hybrid heritage that spans three continents, Anisha’s designs bring the concept of the heirloom into today. As cultures blend and bend to reflect the modern world, we’re presented with the opportunity to write new stories; refreshing old fables with new perspectives, retelling ancient myths in a modern style, or reinvigorating forgotten moments with an injection of innovation. At the heart of it all, one thing remains constant: we believe in the power of wearing our culture and our stories in a way that will uplift and empower.

Every APL design is rooted in South Asian history, whether it’s a modern take on the traditional jhumka that adorns many a South Asian girl’s ear, or drawing inspiration from the vibrant festivities of Diwali to create unique pieces that reflect the diyas (lamps) that light up the homes and streets.

Mr Ps Pots

James Pettinger, sometimes known as Mr P, is a potter and maker based in the heart of Derby. Graduating  with a degree in Cabinetmaking, his background is heavily influenced by process, design and functionality.

His traditionally wheel-thrown pottery is tactile and understated. It retains the marks made during the making process, emphasising the connection between the object and its maker. Each piece is truly unique, no two are the same size, or even the same shape. From raw clay to finished item every piece is handmade.

He believes that everyday items can be beautiful.

Helen Domleo

A South African jeweller living in Nottinghamshire Helen finds her inspiration in seed pods, leaves and other natural objects she finds in her surrounding as well as her earlier work in the African bush, and travels around South East Asia.

Helen forms and shapes each piece, patterning the surfaces using
hammers and other hand tools. Patterns are sometimes imprinted, using a rolling mill, these could be different fabrics, leaves or other fibres, or by hammering and stamping, to create specific textures that are rich in detail.

Zaza Lewis

Zaza Lewis is a mixed media artist who has been creating bold and contemporary pieces using mainly scalpels and scissors instead of brushes.

Her distinctive and unique style is achieved by the confident use of bright coloured textiles next to the sharp contrasts of dark backgrounds.

She has an eye for architecture and landscapes – from the intricate ironwork of a balcony to a pier and beach, or even a coastal town. Plants, from the foxgloves to the study of nasturtium also take pride in her collection.

Originally from France, Zaza has been living in Derbyshire since she was 18. You will see both her French roots and her adopted country – including her own garden – reflected in her work.
