It has been a busy year already with classes booking quickly. There's been lots of learning and exciting stuff made. Look at the pictures on the Termly Classes and One Day Classes pages to see some examples.
Exhibitions and Wokingham
I'm looking forward to my three shows this year the first of which is at Goring, see more about this on my Exhibitions page. I shall also be showing at Norden Farm but have yet to agree a date.
Wokingham traders are really suffering due to the redevelopment work, however Artfest will still be happening on 2 June in the centre of Wokingham. There will be individual local artists selling their work so if you can, do go to support and see some exciting stuff. Link to Art Fest Website. A lot of the redevelopment is due to be finished by this time.
And don't forget Wokingham Music Club and Wokingham Film Society. There's a lot to look forward to in Wokingham.

Well the snow fell in February but it did not stop us going to London to visit Goldsmith's Hall to see their Resource/Library Centre and the exhibition that was on there. Unfortunately we could not get a tour of the assay offfice as David Merry, who does the tours was too far out in the countryside to be able to tackle the snow to get in. This has benefitted us as I am now organising another trip so students can see hallmarking being done and take advantage of going to Hatton Garden again to buy supplies.
Goldsmith's Hall is a wonderful building and it is free to go in with an exciting timetable of exhibitions, added to that a lunch stop at Has at the end of the road and it is a perfect day out.
Hallmarking the Grand National Trophy at London
