So, good luck to everyone who enters and thanks for all your support.

From everyone at The Eighth Day Co-operative.

The Big Italian Wine Event

Come and join us on the 5th of December 2014 at Eighth Day for an evening of  tutored wine tastings with Andre D’ Ercole the founder of Italyabroad Wines.

We’ll be starting the evening off with a thrilling fizz, followed by two truly elegant white wines, a couple of sumptuous reds, then something truly indulgent and sticky to finish; all accompanied by locally made cheese and bread, with Italian Panetone to finish.  Salute!

Stephanie Shaw BA(Hons) Illustration (Manchester School of Art)

Using mixed media, painting drawing and sculpture, I am trying to create a space whereby the process is apparent and the artist is present. My work has been an ongoing enquiry into building relationships between pre-existing imagery and my own mark making, by playing with form, colour, texture and scale. Recently this has developed into opening up a dialogue between 2- and 3- dimensions.

I am interested in how the artist can influence the viewer’s perception and participation. Through the destabilising effect of collage upon visual and contextual knowledge, the viewer’s control is disturbed and the visual validity questioned.

These collages are not only solitary works, but, seen contemporaneously in hand made zines and artists books, reference their source, thus creating a metaphor for the idea of DIY self-publishing as a tool for complete control over output.



I am a practicing artist and also work as a freelance illustrator.
