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!

Easter Sunday Craft Fair

By Helen, 04/04/2012 6:59 pm

It’s the Easter Sunday Arts and Craft Market at Cove Garden Nursery this Easter Weekend and although we won’t be enjoying a heatwave like recent days we won’t actually be knee deep in snow like some parts of the country!  Forecast is fair but cooler and it won’t stop us from putting up our gazebos for our annual Easter Sunday Craft Market!  We have a good selection of quality crafts such as: ceramics, jewellery, textiles, wood workers, photography, cupcakes, glass and a blacksmith complete with mobile forge to name a few!  Its a great day out for all the family in the beautiful Exe valley and you can even get a cream tea or cake on the lawn!
