Alysn Midgelow-Marsden (NZ)

I lived in the Midlands of England for most of my life, moving to New Zealand in 2012. I concentrate 100% of my time creating, writing and teaching. I work primarily in copper, bronze, brass, stainless steel and pewter in the form of metal shims and woven metal fabrics and wires, combined with a variety of papers, fabrics, pens, paints, threads and natural objects, subject to change with each new project!

After nearly 30 years, I believe that I can call myself ’experienced’, though I continually feel that I have only scratched the surface in terms of the possibilities, and long may that continue!

I have an experimental and curious nature leading to continuously evolving and changing works and media, investigating new dimensions as they develop. In my workshops you will not necessarily leave with a completed item and certainly no one’s work will be the same, instead you will gain confidence and novel solutions to apply in your work.
