Weekend of festive sparkle

Posted on in #MyReasonIs, Events, Fundraising

A number of local artists are getting together to help make Christmas shopping that little bit easier – and raise money for the MRI Scanner Appeal.

This weekend (19/20 November), seven specialists in arts and crafts are making a rare public appearance away from their studios to showcase their creative wares in West Tanfield Village Hall from 10am to 4pm. Entry is free.

Whether you want to treat yourself – or do a bit of Christmas shopping – there will be a range of goods available to buy from pots and paintings to mosaics, drawings and textiles.

A raffle, with all prizes donated by the exhibitors, will also be held with proceeds going to the MRI Scanner Appeal at the Friarage Hospital. The artists on the day include:

  • Claire Ingledew, botanical watercolours
  • Sue Orrey-Godden, feltmaking
  • Nicky Tudor, mosaics
  • Jo Garlick, drawings and pastels
  • Lou Richwald, ceramics and fused glass
  • Sian Pratt, rugs and decorative textiles
  • Clare Lindley, papercuts and drawings
