Two friends, Ann Cook and Linda Wigfull are showcasing their quirky art which uses a range of materials include wood, metal, material, felt, watercolour, and acrylic (or any natural medium that catches their eyes) this weekend (25-26 June) at Hambleden Village Hall between 10.00-5.00pm.
Ann said, “I couldn’t go to art college but found other ways to challenge myself making curtains and loose covers. Following a leaflet through the door led me to my City and Guilds Part 1 and 2 in Design and Embroidery. Since then I use weaving, spinning, lace making to make my art from wood, material, wire, copper string, or any thing that makes it work for me.”
Linda paints using acrylics, water colour and wet felting Marino wool. He said, “I use these materials because I love the freedom of moving from one medium to another If animate doesn’t work for me in one medium then it’s exciting to have a go in another. This can be frustrating or exhilarating and you can never be sure which of these two is coming your way! All of my pieces in the exhibition have been printed since lock down ended and hopefully the joy that freedom brings shows through in my art.”
There will be tea, coffee and cakes and ample seating is available.
Entry is free
