From Yorkshire to Essex and an Arty Weekend

Last week was spent on the Yorkshire coast in a small but comfortable cottage just a couple of miles walk along the shore from Whitby. No phone or Internet made this a relaxing week with much walking, reading and drawing - done for the sheer enjoyment of drawing. Here is Whitby looking from Sandsend; the abbey can be seen on the headland:

This week has been crowded with work in hand, a troublesome tooth finally fixed and preparations for this coming weekend when I will have a table at the Ashdon Arts and Crafts Fair. Events take place throughout the village, which is near Saffron Walden in Essex. Tickets cost just £2.50 and are available from the Village Hall; the postcode is CB10 2ET.

I will be selling my whole range of engravings and will also have hand printed cards and a copy of "The Woman In Black Portfolio" for people to see. It will be great to meet any readers so do please introduce yourselves if you can get along. The event is open between 10am and 5pm and you will find me in the hall of the Village School. Teas are available so if you cannot find me I will probably be choosing somehome made cake!

Here is the flyer (click to enlarge):

Finally, a reminder that my engravings are still on show at the Bridge Street Pottery and Gallery in Hay-On-Wye. See here.

Thats my weekend. I hope you have a good one.

Hay-On-Wye Exhibition

Last Sunday was the Private View of an exhibition featuring my garden and wildlife engravings at the Brook Street Pottery & Gallery in Hay-On-Wye. Also on display were Maureen Minchin's stunning decorated earthenware. The morning was particularly busy and, by the time I slipped away for a late lunch where were a pleasing number of red dots to be seen.

I waited until the end of the day before taking out the camera and making a record of the room:

The exhibition continues until October 16th 2011. The gallery is open from Wednesday to Sunday 10:30am - 5:30pm.
