This week a few members took up Natalie Kay’s very generous offer of a visit to this gallery & a workshop in ceramics, to include, of course, refreshments & a lovely selection of Pret a Manger sandwiches for lunch! Suriya has kindly told us about their day, but this is just an idea of what they did-there was so much more than this. It started well with freshly brewed coffee & croissants, after which, Natalie gave them some detailed information about the gallery & its history & then a tour of the current exhibition. Afterwards there was a fun activity, where they did some free writing with a collage. Natalie then took them on a tour of the workshops where they saw some amazing artists at work, including Elaine Wilson, who is an author & also teaches at the university. They then got down to the serious business of actually playing with clay-which was a lot harder than they imagined! However, they all managed to produce something of which they were proud! It was a first attempt after all! Altogether it was a very interesting day & we would like to thank Natalie for her kindness in inviting us.
