Exploring possible exhibition venues:
Delapre Abbey & 78 Derngate
thanks to Yvonne for establishing contact with the Abbey.
Sarah will visit both venues to view the exhibition spaces and report back at December’s meeting.
Rugby Museum & Art Gallery - Floor One
Jan and Jane kindly agreed to contact with a view to getting Art to Stitch on their list of potential exhibitors.
For future consideration depending on outcome of above investigations.
Modern Architecture challenge
the group affirmed they want to continue working on this challenge (one or two have completed their pieces….no pressure!).
the theme is ‘Post War Architecture’. Your inspiration needs to be a building or buildings within 50 miles of your residence.
it has to be new work.
you have free choice on dimensions, orientation, technique, colour etc, so make whatever you like as long as it fits the theme criteria.
you are not restricted to a single piece.
you are asked to produce a workbook alongside the making, plus a handling sample.
Sarah had kindly updated the group’s constitution to reflect the name change.
It was decided to add a clause to the effect that if a member misses 4 consecutive meetings and no reason is given, it will be assumed they are no longer interested in attending and removed from the membership list. Of course, should this situation occur, we will e mail the member to check this assumption before removing their name from the list.
December meeting 10/12 - Sally volunteered to help us invoke the festive spirit with a session on Glitz! Sally will send a message round with more info and suggestions on what to bring if you want to participate.
We will welcome the new year at our January meeting with a bring and share lunch. Please bring a plate (sweet or savoury) if you are attending.
Annual insurance payment - the fee is £5. Please pay at the December meeting if you haven’t yet paid.
Daisy book notes - thanks to Sally for last month’s session on her Daisy book. Several people had missed the session and asked for Sally’s ‘jumping off’ notes to be circulated so they are attached here (for your personal use only).
