Hello Everyone here is another update.
The Waco gallery is coming along well. We have been open for 5 days now,We are getting lots of excellent feed back from the local community. Artists and craft people are now coming forward with some beautiful work. We have beautiful girls dresses and knitted /crochet cardigans, Hats, feather cushions with great designs, Lots of different styles of paintings in acrylic, stamp pictures, A portrait and wedding photographer, Ceramics and pottery, amazing en-caustic (Wax) pictures,Hand made beaded jewellery and lots more.
I am now in the process of sorting out the workshops in Art and Crafts -Which will take place at the rear of the shop. They will be 2 hours long and cost £25.00. Some will have material costs but we will keep this down to a minimum.
We will also have gift vouchers for the workshops too, so you can give a nice unusual present to someone you love.They will be able to redeem this in any craft workshop they choose and their will be lots.
I have a kiln heating up right now, so while I am waiting I'm writing this blog. Soon I will have another batch of goodies to sell, I also have been on the pottery wheel yesterday and thrown 12 dishes which are now ready to put coloured slip on and decorate by incising and painting.
Well that's the news, take a look at the WACO section on the website, I have uploaded some photos of the gallery/craft shop- hope you like it - I love it.
All the best
