October 2019

On Sunday 20th October Simon Williams came to our meeting and gave a very instructive workshop on painting with gouache. This was a medium that few of us had tried for botanical work. Thank you Simon for the time spent coming around the room helping and advising everyone. It was an enjoyable day with some lovely work produced.

Our first venture participating in Birmingham Open Studios on 12th October at Stirchley Baths was very successful. We hung members art work around the walls of the cinema room, and set up a double row of tables down the centre with more paintings, prints and cards all of which were for sale. We felt it was a very successful event with good comments from our visitors who also purchased cards.

We will once again have a stand at the NEC from 31st October to 3rd November 2019 at the ‘Creative Crafts’ event.
