Been there, Seen that, Had a Great Time

We've been to Cheshire to give a talk for the Guild. What a great branch - loads of members and lots of enthusiasm.

Stopped off at a wonderful exhibition in Stafford - at the Shire Hall. Called 'Drawing with Thread', it's outstanding - do go if you possibly can. The pic above is by Cas Holmes.

The one below is by Morwenna Catt. I love her work and she's got some great new stuff in this exhibition.


And Caroline Kirton whose teenage portraits are so humorous.

Back to the branch - I was very taken with their banner.

The tiny cameos of local life were lovely.

I wrote this blog on the talks laptop and it wouldn't move the pics about. I've now managed to get home and on the other machine to put it all right.

Cas Holmes has an exhibition at the Trinity Centre in Tunbridge Wells, starting on Monday, and I can't wait to go!

I love Cas Holmes work and the 'Teenagers' too. Glad you had a good time in Cheshire and I'm sure all the EG members did as well. Their banner is wonderful.
