Mandy Nash: I set up my workshop in 1983 after leaving the Royal College of Art and established my studio in Model House Craft and Design Centre in 1990. I work primarily in anodised aluminium producing one off and batch production jewellery. My three passions are colour, pattern and technique and much of my inspiration comes from my travels around the world. In 2010, I received an Arts Council of Wales grant to help purchase a laser cutter enabling me to develop new work in taffeta, acrylic, cardboard and wood. I am regional co-ordinator and vice chair of the International Feltmakers Association, a member of the Makers Guild in Wales, the Association of Contemporary Jewellery, MaP, a textile group and Seven:14, a mixed media group. I have exhibited widely in the UK, Europe, Japan, USA and Canada.
