For fans of the fantastic and the odd, we are the Underbridge Society, an eclectic alliance of artists delving into the shadows and ideas running behind, beneath, and below.
We were born from the combined efforts of Crown Street Cottage & The Clockwork Ticker who share this passion for the unusual and different and encouraging imagination and an appreciation of art and the fantastic in the world around us.
Crown Street Cottage
Here at Crown Street Cottage we create traditional patterns with a modern flair. 18th century samplers are the foundation of our samplers but our modern day interests and love affairs are the inspiration for their content!
The Clockwork Ticker
Life with a re-purpose! The Clockwork Ticker Team believes in bringing together the fantastic and the mundane; whether it’s a soft-sculpture figure, a story of monsters, or a re-purposed old toy we let our imaginations fly to new heights.At our shows - and here online - you can find everything from Young Gentlemen to Scrapplings, and from Beasties to Huldufolk ... and the myriad of Bog Troggles in-betwixt.
The Skeleton Key Studio
A haunted house filled with random bits and broken treasure. A skeleton key can open every door, every pathway, portal, and mind to things previously unseen in this place. All the art produced here is made by Kay Wrenn... a little off kilter and wholly one of a kind. Just right for the happily earthbound, recently departed, or displaced soul.
Now that you have found us, have a wander, check out the booths, enjoy the sights and smells, watch your step... some of our friends don't feel the need to use a loo.
