What a Show...

...or should we say shows!

It only seemed like a few days after the Hampshire Open Studios exhibition in Highclere, and we were loading up our cars and setting off again, this time for Weyhill Gallery near Andover.  I guess we must be doing something right, because once again we were really pleased to be asked to continue our exhibition for an extra week, up to September 23rd.  (although 3 weeks next door to their lovely cafe is not so good for the waistline!)

We all enjoy putting our work together for a group exhibition and displaying the mix of jewellery, paintings, photographs, mixed media, ceramics and textiles - we learn a lot from each other in the process.

The next time we will be together is at Roots on November 11th.  In the meantime, hope you enjoy these pictures from our summer shows.

Made in the Hood arranges shared photo session for artists.



24th January and 7th February saw us at Newbury College photography studios under the expert guidance of Danny Mason. We had a great couple of hours learning how to take photographs of our crafts for websites and brochures. Having a shared photography event was great – everyone picked up photography and lighting tips with expert advice always on hand. I think we will be back! Thanks again to Danny.
