Rob Burton: The Material Imagination

Rob Burton is a visual artist and academic who explores themes of memory, loss and transformation through fibre, fabric making, print techniques, drawing and broad approaches to image making. His artworks cross the threshold of disciplines in a conceptual dialogue between the innovative use of analogue, contemporary and emerging techniques. Rob has recently exhibited internationally in group exhibitions, biennials and triennials in the USA, Eastern Europe and the UK. He is Head of Design and Innovation at Teesside University.

Our Launch Party for The Material Imagination will take place on Friday 27 April 6-8pm – All welcome.



The lunchtime menu for Tuesday 17th & Wednesday 18th April is a Middle Eastern-inspired mezze (for £8.00):

Butter bean, red pepper, tomato & parsley salad
Broad bean salad with radish & mint
Feta cheese with za’atar & Kalamata olive oil
Kalamata olives & caper berries
Traditional homemade pita bread.

Cardamom & Dill’s menu for Thursday 19th, Friday 20th and Saturday 21st of April is inspired by a gentle spring day in Jerusalem featuring both Israeli and Palestinian dishes including:

Pea & barberry kuku, an Iranian Jewish frittata with saffron, dill and mint – barberries are tiny tart red berries that provide an interesting contrast to the sweetness of the peas
Roasted butternut squash & red onion salad with tahini, lemon and za’atar (vegan)
Palestinian maftoul tabbouleh with pomegranate arils, toasted almonds and fresh mint (vegan)
A creamy, garlicky, lemony hummus (vegan)

Peter & Shirley Teed

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the deaths of Robert’s parents, Shirley and Peter Teed. Shirley died on 4 January, Peter on the 14th. Their funeral took place at Crantock Church in Cornwall on 20 January.

Shirley Teed was a distinguished artist and a memorial exhibition of her work will take place at the gallery later this year.

Damian Le Bas 1963 – 2017

IMG_3107We were heartbroken to learn of the death of the artist Damian Le Bas. Damian was a visionary artist and a brilliant exponent of Art Brut or Gypsy DaDa (a term he coined). He was also a man with an amazing sense of humour and a warm, generous soul and we feel immensely privileged to have worked with him on our Black Butterflies exhibition (2013) and Grace In Thy Sight residency (2014). Our thoughts and sympathies go to his wife Delaine and son Damian James.


We are currently stocking the beautiful catalogue of ‘Home From Home’, an exhibition of international ceramicists currently on show at Contemporary Applied Arts in London. The CAA invited Robert to write a catalogue essay for Home From Home, which appears alongside an essay by David Whiting and profiles of each of the twenty-five participating artists. Catalogues are £10.

One thought on “School House Gallery”

  1. Such a relaxing place. A pot of Earl Grey, a piece of home-made cake, some interesting art works and Dave Brubeck in the background – I’ll definitely return!
