As the summer has drawn to a close and September doesn't quite know where it's going with heat, humidity and heavy showers, I can at least assure you that the Inspired Exhibition is on track and opening, as promised, this Saturday.
Come along to wander the collections, meet the artists and makers, enjoy the refreshments and listen to the soulful sounds of Katie Doyle.
And that's just the beginning. The Inspired Exhibition runs for two weeks, until September 25 at 6pm.
During that time, you will be able to see us at work in our Pop-up Feltmakers' Studio. See some of our works-in-progress, the materials we use and the techniques employed to create a variety of felt objects, wearable and decorative.
We also have a shop where you can buy eco-printed wearables, handmade artbooks, calendars, cards and felt fancies.
We do not have credit card facilities, so cash payments are prefered.
Last but not least, we have our Workshop Programme, including:
September 11th from 2 - 5pm with Rosie Doyle Wall Art
September 15th from 2 - 5pm with Heather Potten 3D Vessels and Pods
September 16th from 2 - 5pm with Heather Potten Berets
September 21st from 2 - 5pm with Rosie Doyle 2-Day Workshop on Handbags
September 17th and 18th (10.30 - 4.30pm) with Heather Potten
All workshops can be booked at the Opening Party or via my website.
Afternoon sessions cost £45 (including materials), with the Weekend Masterclass costing £170 (including all materials).
I hope very much to see you at some point over the next fortnight. We are very excited about this showcase for the many facets of felt. Oh wait...that sounds like a good name for an exhibition! Maybe next time...
