Update #6 – late June into July

Branch Meetings

On Saturday 23rd we have our popular Stitch on Saturday session. Possibly a last chance for some to get work finished for the Annual Review meeting on Friday 6th July. I’m hoping to see the results of some of our recent workshops, especially the ones I didn’t attend – everyone else’s work is always far more interesting than mine!

Summer School

24th to 26th July – Due to a change of plans Trish will be partnered by Paula B to lead this year’s Summer School, see this year’s Branch Workshops  for information. I suspect all places are booked but you never know, it might be worth asking!

Mosaic of the Bayeux Tapestry

I have just been reminded that St Albans Abbey is currently hosting the 1066 Medieval Mosaic, a replica of the Bayeux Tapestry made of reclaimed steel fragments . I am told there is no charge to visitors.

July exhibition at Art Van Go

The theme of our latest exhibition, Tick the Box, came out of discussions about how to escape the pressure to ‘get through our lists’, to conform – especially in the workplace, combined with the pleasure in literally making box forms.

This is the second joint exhibition from the ‘Work In Progress’ Group. The seven of us, Pat Brown, Sue Cooke, Gill Davies, Jeannine Lawder, Penny Proctor, Janet Pullen, Lesley Taylor, are linked through studying a City and Guilds Diploma in embroidery at Missenden Abbey.

Fascinated by stitch but separated by a diversity of techniques, our exhibition explores highly individual imagery and materials. We hope you enjoy our different interpretations of ‘Tick the Box’.

Members of the group will be in attendance at the exhibition on the following days to discuss the work:

Wednesday 4th July
Friday 13th July
Saturday 14th July
Tuesday 24th July
Wednesday 25th July

Radlett Art Society’s Annual Exhibition

I have 3 entries for the art exhibition at The Radlett Centre which starts on Saturday 7th July  in the main auditorium & continues all this week.
It is usually a lovely show, and worth a visit, if you have the chance to go. I shall be stewarding tomorrow afternoon 2-4pm.
