A big thank you to everyone who came to Art a'Peel's Open Day on Sunday, what an amazing day we all had.
We had many comments on the high quality of work on display, which is what Art a'Peel is all about.
Our "Masque" theme for this year enabled us to dig deep for ideas and resulted in a splendid variety of work
One of my contributions to the theme was this face mask made of angelina fibres molded to shape and embellished with embroidery threads and beads. All our members submitted a diverse selection of masques and I'm always stunned by their imagination, every one of them was incredible.
Elizabeth Morley displayed some of her incredible wearable art,
as did Dixie Stanford.
My display of Chinese textiles was a great hit, and it was lovely to see how fascinated people were with the history of the pieces, if not a little horrified about the history of foot binding.
And not forgetting the scrumptious food we had available ... warming home made soups, scones with jam and cream, biscuits and cakes ... we always look after our visitors..
So for those who couldn't make it this year, make a note in your calendar and don't forget to pop along next year - everybody is welcome!
