a visit to...art in action
art in action...
Last Summer we took Evie and Gabriel to Art In Action
at Waterperry Gardens, near Thame in Oxfordshire.
They had a ball, taking a one hour pottery class at the wheel,
watching glassblowing, painting, drawing and even wood turning.
We spent the entire weekend at this annual event,
which hosts over 400 of the UK's most talented
artists in every field of art and craft.
For those of you who are able to make it there as the gates open,
you have the opportunity to purchase tickets for daily workshops,
ranging from watercolour painting, batik,
oils, pot throwing, bookbinding, drawing....
If you miss out on these paid tutorials, don't worry,
there are plenty of free sessions to take part in too.
Last year I spent a fantastic hour at the Pebeo stand
with talented artist Jenny Muncaster showing us how to work with acrylics.
This was a first for me and I absolutely loved it,
so I'm really looking forward to meeting Jenny again
and trying something new.
I can't recommend Art In Action enough-
it starts this Thursday 18th July and runs through to Sunday 21st July,
so if you have the opportunity to go-do!
