The Show is over – On with the show
Actually it all finished over a week ago, but we’re still reeling from the amazing response we had to our contribution to the Harwich Festival of the Arts. Now it’s back to business as usual and onwards, delivering workshops and courses to all you creative people.
We would like to thank all of you who paid us a visit during our Summer Exhibition and thank you again for all your positive comments and enthusiasm.
A Brief Roundup
We were delighted to see so many people, local and from further afield, who came along to browse the exhibition and we were really pleased to sell over 30 pieces of original artwork and prints. It was also a great opportunity for people to see the studios and chat about the workshops and courses we run.
The other huge success was the creation of Beached Willow, an eleven metre willow woven whale right here on Harwich beach. A MASSIVE THANK YOU to Deb Hart for turning my idea into reality and thanks to the sponsors: Essex County Council and Harwich Town Council for funding the work and The Alma Inn and Dining Rooms for funding all the materials. I think this stunning art installation certainly stole the show at HF17 and will hopefully last for quite a while before the elements consume it.
I also have to mention Bonnie’s Pop Up Tea Shop which again surpassed all expectations. Our, recently returned from university, daughter took full responsibility for organising and running this venture – including all the baking – and what a lot of happy customers she had “the best lemon drizzle cake ever”.
