We are sorry but FELT-A-FACE on Saturday 3rd February is already fully booked.

During the first week Angela Carol and Judy will be resident and working in the Gallery.
Angela Carol will spend the week concentrating on producing an artwork based on responses to books made by the library staff and exhibit this new work on January 19th.

   Week commencing 15th January.

The second week from Saturday 20th until Friday 26th all three artists will work together to produce a collaborative artwork that will incorporate their very different styles.  Nothing is planned so the outcome is unpredictable.

Visitors are welcome to come and chat about the work in progress during both weeks when the artists will be working in the gallery from 10.30 until 3.
