VISITORS to Leek were able to browse through and buy unique, original arts and crafts at a two-day fair at the weekend.

More than 30 professional artists and designers had their work on sale at the Foxlowe Arts Centre on Saturday and Sunday for the second Staffordshire Artists and Designers Fair.

Past and present students from Leek School of Art - now part of Buxton and Leek College - were among the exhibitors at the event organised by Suzanne Mellor, Exhibitions Co-ordinator and lecturer at the School of Art, fellow lecturer Anne-Lise Fraser, and the School's Foundation Degree students. Both local and national artists showcased their paintings, prints, photographs, ceramics, glass, jewellery, textiles and wood

Professional artists showing their work included David Blanchard from Cromford with his 'Split Tin Guitars' made from tins and boxes and Julia Jowett from Tixall, Stafford with her folklore mixed media narratives.

'Contemporary Mix' - a group of former Buxton and Leek College Foundation degree students featured work inspired by the Staffordshire Moorlands and natural plant forms.
