    In this touching and often flat-out-funny film, the film follows ‘everyman’ Jeb Berrier as he embarks on a global tour to unravel the complexities of our plastic world. What starts as a film about plastic bags evolves into a wholesale investigation into plastic and its effect on our waterways, oceans, and even our own bodies. We see how our crazy for plastic world has finally caught up to us and what we can do about it. Today. Right now.

    Tickets to the screening are free and limited.  To book your seat email Julia at bagithenley@gmail.com  Doors open at 7.45pm.

    The power and abundance of the countryside is their motivation and inspiration, but artists Jan Marshall and June Hiscock choose to express their love of nature in very different ways.  While Jan's intricate drawings, prints and canvases explore the atmosphere, tones and patterns in the natural world, June's bold and colourful fabric art celebrates its vibrant hues and textures - often with some gentle humour.

    Collaborating for the first time in this 'Second Nature' exhibition, Jan and June present a varied, fresh and highly original range of their favourite current work.

    In this exhibition Guild members will be showing paintings, prints, drawings and sculpture which will have been selected by an external selector (usually a local art dealer or teacher).  This often results in a very vibrant but harmonious exhibition with the very best of the Guilds work on display.

    For further information about the Guild and our exhibitions please visit www.henley-arts.org or look at our facebook page Henley Arts and Crafts Guild.
