View our Artists
The Ashdown Artists and Artisans live in Forest Row and the surrounding area and are dedicated to their creativity. Some work as full time artists/artisans while others create alongside jobs or families.

The annual exhibition enables each member a chance to show their creations to the community in a well presented show. Other projects and smaller groups exhibit during the year in venues ranging from London, Brighton and closer to home.

Ashdown Arts is excited to be part of the Forest Row Festival this year as it allows us to really connect to the village spirit and not just be a standalone event.

We have an eclectic mix of artists ranging from the renowned Ursula Stone, Vanessa Dell, Rosie Birtwhistle, to fine sculpture, exquisite crafts, or if you would like an amazing portrait done of human or animal, then look out for Martin Ash, Ken Banfield or Gill Bustamante…
