Wirral Open Studios Tour
June weekend 8th & 9th: my Wellington Road studio will be open.
A pop-up exhibition in conjunction with the September Wirral Heritage weekend. A chance to exhibit your work, £2 per entry up to three entries. Items can include paintings, photography, 3D ceramics, jewellery, printmaking and textiles. A lockable glass cabinet will be available limited space. Works for sale or just exhibition; 10% commission to church funds. A private view Friday evening, 7 to 9pm, for family and friends to be arranged. Bring and share refreshments. All fees go to church funds as a contribution to weekend room hire.
I am considering producing a book of photographs of selected life drawings from the last six years since we started at Christ Church. I will need help identifying some of the artists as I have thousands of photos. This will be a celebration of the creative work from our Saturday Life Drawing group.
