Birds of Paradise - a huge flock of fanciful birds - will come to rest in St John's Church as part of the festival. Created in local arts and crafts workshops, the flock is made up of birds of every feather - from glittering and bejewelled to subtle and understated, and everything in between. The show includes works of all scales in textile, pottery, paper and mixed-media.
Judith and Sylvia are two of the artists exhibiting. They go to arts and crafts workshops two afternoons each week. With support from their ubu enablers they make the bus journey and short walk to the centre and spend a happy and productive three hours absorbed in their creative endeavours: Judith does textiles and jewellery- making while Sylvia prefers textiles and paper crafts. As well as enjoying the creative process, Judith in particular loves having a finished piece to show for her efforts.
Birds of Paradise is showing at St John's Church from:
Fri 10 August to Sun 19 Aug, opening Mon - Sat 10am - 4pm and Sun 2pm - 4pm.
Entry is free but as the works being shown will be for sale (delivery when the exhibition closes) you'd be wise to take your wallet with you just in case.
