It is now only a few days until we hang ‘From the Earth’. We have started to receive lots of lovely packages from around the UK and some from overseas. I am not sure whether we have announced this but not only will we be hanging the main exhibition but also a subsidiary tutors exhibition in the gallery at ArtVanGo which will include work from all those involved in the workshops that are running there in June. Even better reason to visit Hertfordshire in June.
In the meantime we will leave you with an image of Alice Foxes lovely Oakleaf Quilt which can be seen in the main exhibition.
We would like to wish everybody a Merry Christmas! We hope that lots of you are working hard on their submissions for the exhibition, January 31st is now only just around the corner.
A quick word regarding workshops, we have had a flurry of signings recently as they have been advertised alongside the regular ArtVanGO workshop programme which was released this week. If you are at all interested in any of the classes we suggest you get in there quick. There are still several places left for Sarah Waters’ Black and White class which is strongly recommended. Here is a beautiful and quite seasonal images of her work which was on display at Romsey Abbey earlier on this year.

We are extremely pleased to announce that Jenny Dean has agreed to open our exhibition. Jenny could arguably be considered to be the premier practitioner of natural dyeing in the UK and has written numerous books on the subject including ‘Wild Colour’ and most recently ‘A Heritage of Colour’.
