Sue Timney and Grahame Fowler met at the RCA in 1979 and went to on to set up the successful print design company Timney-Fowler. The company’s signature black and white graphic style was popular worldwide and led to collaborations with Yojhi Yamamoto, Issey Miyake, Ralph Lauren and Diane von Furstenberg. The brand also designed their own clothing range and opened shops in Portobello Road and the Kings Road in London.

Handmade by Jon and Judy Homer @ Ropery Hall, The Ropewalk, Maltkin Road
Sep 5 – Oct 6 all-day

Handmade leather bags by saddle fitter and bridle maker, Jon Homer and his wife Judy are created by using repurposed vintage printing plates to permanently emboss the designs into wet unfinished hides.

After drying, they are then hand painted using acrylic leather dyes before the hide is finished with several layers of their own mixed tannery dye. They are then repainted to highlight areas and sealed with a generous coat of homemade beeswax and carnauba wax.

A final few hours for drying and then polishing leaves the leather ready to be cut to shape and stitched up, a process which can take up to three days.

Recent Paintings by Anthony Housman @ Ropery Hall, The Ropewalk, Maltkin Road
Sep 9 – Oct 22 all-day

Anthony Housman makes paintings that contain motifs and biomorphic shapes which take their cue from a diverse range of starting points. These include recreational, re-enacted and domestic sources.

Anthony’s paintings usually begin with what he calls an “activation of the canvas” – a flurry of diluted, painterly gestures, from which he looks to assimilate apparitions of space, by introducing increasingly systematized forms and solid swathes of colour.  His approach to painting aims at developing a constant dialogue between the intentional and the incidental. Many of his paintings contain additional collage elements including canvas.


3hattrio @ Ropery Hall, The Ropewalk, Maltkin Road
Sep 9 @ 8:00 pm

The 3hattrio plays American Desert Music. Their aim is to create a new music which responds to the natural world of their sacred homeland near Zion National Park in Utah.

They also strive to acknowledge the cultural traditions of generations of people who have worked and lived on the deserts of the American southwest.

The subject matter of the songs is often desert oriented, sometimes not. Mostly, they express the desert experientially from a daily-ness of watching light off distant mesas and hearing the way sound plays off sheer sandstone cliffs.  Then they play music.

La La Land (12A) @ Ropery Hall, The Ropewalk, Maltkin Road
Sep 14 @ 7:30 pm

Two proper LA dreamers – a suavely charming soft-spoken jazz pianist and a brilliant vivacious playwright. While waiting for their big break, attempt to reconcile aspirations and relationship in a magical old-school romance.
