A city-based artist showcases her work for a second weekend on a popular independent shopping street in the heart of Norwich.

Morwenna Farrell set up shop at 13a St Augustines Street on Thursday August 18 – which is usually home to Jubilique Vintage – for the first of two three-day pop-up stints, the second of which is this weekend.

Jubilique, run by the city of Abbi Evans, has been entrusted to Morwenna and photographer Kerry Curl while Abbi is on maternity leave.

For her pop-up, Morwenna showcases “a bunch” of upcycled vintage clothing as well as the finishing of hand-painted vintage gloves that are on display as works in progress.

Visitors can expect to see the 35-year-old artist in action and purchase a range of his upcycled vintage and eco-friendly screen prints, unisex t-shirts and accessories.

Morwenna attended Norwich University of the Arts as a mature student of illustration.

After graduating, she worked as a screen printing instructor at Print to the People and now works in screen printing for galleries.

Morwenna said: “It was so great to have a place in town where I could do some new work.

“I also loved meeting new people and the community spirit that is on St Augustines Street with so many exciting new independent shops to discover along the way.

“It’s nice and something I’ve never done before, to have people come and buy my latest pieces and watch me at work.”
