I attended ‘Art in the Pen’Exhibition,Skipton, yesterday,Saturday 10th August.
Absolutely fantastic, so many talented Artists and Craftspeople.
The Posca workshop was fun and a special thanks to Tracey and Judith’s (demonstrations)-for their time and expertise.
But a special mention for the staff at Skipton Art Shop......who worked so hard and provided such a fantastic display of art products....at great prices.....it felt like Christmas.
I bought lots ....wish I’d bought more and am thoroughly inspired.
And my husband bought me a Nolan Stacey print of a hare.
Thankyou, so greatly appreciated.
Anne Waters.
