Scatter Gladness Without Care

by Amanda Cobbett

'A creator who has parted with a little of themselves, their passion, inspiration and knowledge and created a piece of handmade work which has an authenticity, 'a soul' is immeasurable. Who could deny the pleasure in admiring and handling that object?'

Amanda Cobbett; Artist, Crafts person, Textile Designer

Amanda lives in the picturesque Surrey Hills and works from her studio creating beautiful sculptures of birds, animals and people using a mixture of papier mache', wire, found objects and vintage fabrics. 

Amanda trained as a printed textile designer at Chelsea College of Art and after graduating in 1994 has worked professionally in this field. 

Printmaking still features in her day to day working and is a constant source of inspiration, this combined with colour, intricacy, automata, a collection of salvaged materials and the setting of a tiny scene; they all play a part in the creative process.
