ArtSpace kicks off the new year!

Thank you everyone who came to the new ArtSpace in the Hub yesterday, our monthly drawing workshop – and thank you to Shirley Cartey for providing such a beautiful and varied collection of pots and vases to draw. The group dabbled with pencil, charcoal and even collage, working from different angles and producing both quick, spontaneous sketches and longer, more considered drawings.

The next ArtSpace is on Sunday 3rd February, 2-5pm, when we will be drawing organic shapes – plants and driftwood. Everyone is welcome – even those who say they can’t draw! Bring your own materials if you wish but there will be plenty of paper, pencils, charcoal etc to try out. Tickets are £10, including refreshments.

TheCurve is open!

 

The perfect space to showcase art and crafts!  TheCurve@HungerfordHub opened this weekend for its first exhibition, selling works by local artists.

Next weekend, TheCurve will be hosting a pop-up shop. If you are looking for something a little different this Christmas, TheCurve could provide the solution with affordable and unique gifts handmade by local crafters, artists and artisans. Everything sold in TheCurve is original so not only will you be supporting a local crafter, you will also be supporting the Hub, the roof over our library.

Opening times: Friday 7th, 10am-7pm and Saturday 8th December,  10am-5.30pm.

10% commission on all sales (20% on cards) going to Hungerford Library & Community Trust, a registered charity.

 

Snip, snip, stick!

A9A91932-8D56-4C04-B361-30D5689E3A52Mixed Media & Collage Workshop with Shirley Cartey and Andi Mulholland

Saturday 6th October 2018, 2-5pm

This promises to be a fun afternoon! Working with Shirley and Andi to create collage paintings using scissors, paper and glue.

How does collage work?

Any way you want! You can create an image with paper just as you can with paint –  you can add colour and texture using paper, magazines or photographs. You can add paint, charcoal, oil pastels – whatever you fancy – to bring out the textures or further develop your image.  Of course it doesn’t have to be just paper – it could be scraps of fabric or dried leaves – anything as long as it can be stuck to paper.

The purpose of this workshop is to experiment and play with media you might not normally use and be open to possibilities. The results might inspire a painting, or simply encourage further experimentation. 

Ticket price includes a selection of materials but bring any special finds you may have, photographs that inspire you, plus your favourite scissors. We’ll provide the tea, coffee and cake!

Cost: £35

Shirley and Andi are both artists who have exhibited with Open Studios and regularly show their work in local exhibitions. You can see their work at shirleycarteyart.com and andimulholland.com.
