The exhibition will feature work created by Avril Morris, David Morris and Twink Addison.

Avril Morris studied ceramics and sculpture at Leeds College of Art, and has also taught at various schools across Lincolnshire.

Avril also enjoys working in her ceramics studio workshop with her husband David.

Avril’s interest in ceramics was eventually overtaken by a desire to paint - which has now turned into Avril’s full-time passion since retiring from teaching.

After studying at Leeds College of Art, David Morris spent some time teaching in Hull before moving to Lincolnshire.

Throughout his career, David has worked as a lecturer in ceramics at Grimsby School of Art, a Full Member of the Craftsmans Potters Association, and ran a pottery studio until he retired from teaching.

Twink Addison studied art at Grimsby, Newcastle on Tyne and Goldsmiths and worked as a teacher in the 1970s but eventually became a jobbing artist, illustrator and cartoonist.
