March 1st, St Davids day and the first day of spring.
With the sun shining the door was flung open at the yard:ARTspace for the local community and interested creatives to come and look around.
The corks were ready to pop.
There was lots to look at and be inspired by. Creative sketch books. There is 1 place left on this workshop on March 7-8, short notice I know, but contact me if you would like the place.
Christine Waygoods textiles. Christine is showing at Cheltenham Open Studios at Commercial Street this year and her first Felt Making Workshop is on May 9 at the yard.
I created a small display to explain exactly what collagraph is. There are places on the current workshops, but the 10 week courses in the summer term are filling up fast.
The artists involved with the yard:ARTspace making it a creative and inspiring place to be.
the yard is thrilled to be hosting a series of painting workshops in using water-mixable oils with artist Louise Millin Inchley. Louise is also taking part in Cheltenham Open Studios in the local area.
Dinny Pocock is exhibiting her mixed media sculptural objects at the yard for COS and will be running a Bobbin Robin needle felt workshop in November as part of Create for Christmas.
Lorna Prudden is exhibiting her glass work in this space at COS and has agreed to run a glass workshop as part of the Create for Christmas program.
And Jane Sasanow is part of the Open Studio trio at the yard and will be running an artists book making workshop October 3-4.
From 3pm to 5pm people came
to see what was happening at the yard.
It is hard to photograph an event like
this, especially when most people are looking at things
and the rooms are so crowded, but Toby Brown did a marvelous job. The afternoon was not sunny, so thankyou to everyone who came out in the foul weather to support us.
If you missed this event and would like to see what is happening at the yard:ARTspace the door will always be open and the kettle hot between 2-5pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Come and have a look, discuss a suitable workshop or course, or just pop in for some inspiration and to see what the printmakers, artists and makers are up to in the yard.
