Happy New Year to Everyone.

It has been an amazing creative year for me and many of my students, visitors and friends. This photo was taken by The Dereham Times photographer to celebrate the end of a creative textile year. Just a few of my students who got together to celebrate and share. Sadly it is the end of classes at The Memorial Hall as the Town Council do not wish for there to be an Art Centre at The Memorial Hall. The Gallery will close in February. Everyone is dismayed as it  was a vibrant addition to the new renovated building. I have been teaching @The Gallery for three years and have had so much fun , so it is so sad The Gallery is closing. Thank you to Haydn and Judy and they will be continuing the framing shop and classes at other venues.

My City and Guilds classes will continue at The Memorial Hall until July. I will be moving “Textile Tuesday”from the 8th of January2013, to “The Art Room” along with Thursdays Patchwork and Quilting and Wednesday Evening classes there too. The Art Room, set up by Claire Francis Smith a Painter, Artist and Tutor, who also ran classes @The Gallery . Claire has opened up an Art Studio, a classroom purposely for Art and Textiles. It has the atmosphere of an Artist Studio and she has been creatively teaching and demonstrating there since November. See her website and work by clicking on the link/name above.

The Art Room is at 1A Rashers Green, Toftwood. Dereham. Norfolk. NR19 1JG. Come in and see the creativity.

Class lists, times and venues will be available on Quilters Cottage Norfolk.

So, New Year, new Venues, new ideas and lots of creativity.It has been a wonderful 2012 of creativity and I am really looking forward to the creativity this year as there is lots planned. I will try and put lots of posts up on my blogsite Quilters Cottage Norfolk to keep you up to date with all the creations again and the monthly one here at Art2Inspire.

Hope everyone has a Happy, Healthy and Creative New Year.


New Year, New Sculpture and New Gallery

Happy New Year to everyone.

It was a very busy time  and exciting time at the end of last year with the build up to

Christmas and moving The Gallery to a new modern space.

With the moving to the new building I responded by creating a  new sculpture

‘Jeanetta Sculpiturio’.

I was inspired by the feeling of change,

architecture, the new space before and after,  Venice and one of my students.
