Our biggest entry yet for our Spring Exhibition - we hope that you enjoyed either exhibiting, visiting or both! Thank you for supporting our Macmillan Fundraiser with the sale of the Charity Pictures - we raised over £200!
A great evening hearing about Jackie's journey through art, including being the Artist in Residence on exclusive cruises, as well as living in France for many years! Her sketchbooks were a wonder to see and a wonderful record of her travels. These are her inspiration from where her contemporary watercolours now come, recently building on the idea of how ripping the paper can increase the experience of the artwork.

A wonderful night finding out about the traditional learning process of artists learning the academic art of drawing by attending an academy for 5 years. The premise being that anyone can learn to draw by hours of practice and honing skills. George wowed us with a great sketch using his Sight Sizing Portraiture process using charcoal and alot of patience. Th evening also saw Bafa's first Live Facebook post - enabling members who weren't able to attend the chance to see this precise technique.
We had a great night on Tuesday with Mike starting the night by giving us a really interesting historical background to the art of Stained Glass. This was followed by Jenny giving us a demonstration of the Copper foil technique of Stained glass that is perfect for artistic and creative designs. She explained that the traditional leading technique is more suitable for items that are for outside locations. The evening concluded with members being given the chance to have a go at cutting glass - no cut fingers to report! Jenny and Mike offer many courses for those wishing to have a go at the whole process.
