Room6 is a group of six artists, who have a strong connection to Eastleigh College, originally stitched textiles courses were taught in room 6 of the Cranbury annexe of the college, hence the name of the group. The artists are drawn from tutors and past students. Consuelo Simpson and Nicky Barfoot represent the first group of graduates to pass through room 6, Caroline Bell and Alison Hulme represent the second group of graduates, Irene Belcher is from the HNC Contemporary Art Practice. Susan Chapman is the author and the course manager/tutor for these courses and brought the original group together.
Information about each of us can be found on the Artists page of this site.
We exhibit together and also organise textile events locally. We plan to organise summer schools and other workshops.
