Cal Lain – Professional Landscape Artist and Freelance Artist Educator

Art forms: Visual Arts particularly Painting and Drawing, Teacher and Workshop Leader

  • I run art workshops and courses for up to 5 people at my beautiful contemporary studio in near Wymondham.

  • I also mentor and inspire A’level Art students with their portfolios.

  • I am particularly passionate about Arts and Health and its positive effect on physical and emotional wellbeing.

I use drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed media, photography, design, ceramics/clay work and making/craft activities within my workshops.

My engagement and fascination with the physical features of the natural world referencing North Norfolk, Scotland, Antarctic ice shelves, Mountains, Bird migration, Geomorphology and Coastlines are important themes within my artistic practice. I work within a cross disciplinary Fine Art practice exploring large scale photography, sculpture, systematic drawings, and paintings through to ceramics. I hope that my work aspires to being poetic, sensitive, humble, and strong and that it embraces skill and craftsmanship. I almost always develop a series of images/objects which is significant in all aspects of my practice from making to display. I have exhibited at the Royal Academy of Arts and Kettles Yard, Cambridge.

My learner groups include those with learning difficulties, physical disabilities including hearing and visual impairments and those with mental health problems. I aim to promote a supportive and welcoming working environment, encouraging confidence, self-expression, ideas and individuality.

Dave Tonge – The Yarnsmith of Norwich

Art forms: Storyteller, historian and author

Summary: I tell stories at museums, heritage sites, schools, festivals and fairs over much of the UK. My focus is on stories from Saxon and Viking times through Medieval and Tudor to the present day.

Locations: Throughout East Anglia, but also the rest of England.

Experience: I have told at many national museums, including the British Museum and Ashmolean. Also for English Heritage for the last 15 years, the Shakespeare’s Birthplace Trust and the Historic Royal Palaces. I have also headlined at a number of storytelling festivals including Settle in Yorkshire, Sandwich Winter Tales in Kent and Festival at the Edge in Shropshire.

I have also published two books based on my performances: Tudor Tales (2015) based on an adult storytelling set called ‘The Shaming of Agnes Leaman.’ The second, Norfolk Folk Tales for Children, based on a new set celebrating my local heritage and folklore.

I also run basic storytelling workshops at festivals and one called ‘Telling Heritage,’ focusing on storytelling in museums, that I lead at the Ashmolean every winter.

Qualifications: My interest in storytelling stemmed from using stories as historical sources while studying for my BA and MA at the University of East Anglia. I have also trained as a freelance museum educator at museums in Norfolk, Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, including the Fitzwilliam.

Projects: In 2005 Creative Arts East funded me to lead basic skills storytelling training with a number of disadvantage pupils at a middle school in Great Yarmouth, which culminated with them putting on a storytelling performance at the Time and Tide museum in the town.

While in 2015 I was commissioned by Waveney and Blyth Arts to create and perform a storytelling set, called ‘Legends of a Long Forgotten Land,’  as part of a bigger project, called Finding Doggerland, which explored artists responses to the now lost land bridge that once joined Britain to Europe. My sessions toured libraries throughout Suffolk.

Also in that year, I created a storytelling performance for the Historic Royal Palaces about a Tudor royal progress to be performed at an outreach event at Tatton Park near Manchester. And in 2016 they commissioned me to create and perform a set for and Elizabethan Christmas event held at Hampton Court Palace.

Groups of people worked with: As well as telling to adults, families and young children, I have told stories to groups with learning disabilities, young people with autism and also in care homes to elderly people suffering from various forms of dementia, telling classic tales as part of a reminiscence program.
