Room6 is a group of seven artists, who have a strong connection to the Foundation Degree in Stitched Textiles when it was taught in room 6 of the Cranbury annexe of Eastleigh College, and also the HNC/HND Contemporary Art Practice which takes place in the art school at Eastleigh College. The artists are drawn and were invited from tutors and past graduates. 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, Lynn Onions is from the third group. 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. Recently we have invited two new members, Nicky Barfoot and Irene Belcher to join us.
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.
