Sun Shines on Easter Arts & Crafts Market

By Paul, 02/04/2013 9:35 pm

Our Easter Sunday Arts & Crafts Market went off without a hitch, even the weather improved for the day and there was plenty of sunshine on offer, even if it was a little chilly. The atmosphere was great with Musicians from Whirligig playing through the day and Pitmans Farm providing hot food in the form of a delicious Hog Roast. This was our third Easter Market and with a little help from the weather and a lot of help from the stallholders I think this was our best Easter Market Yet! Many thanks once again to all.

All Fired Up! Exhibition of Glass at Redearth Gallery 26 Oct – 4 Nov 2012

By Helen, 17/10/2012 8:49 pm

All Fired Up is an exhibition of kiln-formed glass by nine Devon Artists at Redearth Gallery, Bickleigh Mill, Tiverton  26 Oct  to 4 Nov.  (redearth-art.com)    The group came together as a result of attending kiln-formed workshops by Anne Smyth at her Devon Studio (www.annesmyth.com) and despite working in the same medium the end results are all very different in their creativity.  This is the first time that they have exhibited together so the work reflects the different personalities in the group and the versatility of the medium!
