Reading Guild of Artists - 14-24 June 10.00 - 16.00
Two shows completed and my new work was well received. It was my first showing on the Whiteknights Studio Trail and what a fun trail to be part of.
Highlights from a selection of work from artists who took part in the Whiteknights Studio Trail will now be showing with the Reading Guild of Artists for ten days.
Having delivered my work to this Summer Show I could see that there is a lot of wonderful art and craft to see there in a super exhibition space. Well worth a visit, and it's free.

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.
