Where did that month go?!!
Here’s a few things that happened during July:
Step in Stone
I have put up a couple of blogs during the month with photos of the Step in Stone Project as it progresses. The next excitement is Step 2 of the project (15 Aug – 18 Oct) – the installation of work at both Westdown/AshamWood Quarry and Halecombe Quarry next Friday, 14 August. Watch this space for more pictures once it is all up and running!!
I will be running two workshops:
Tuesday 25 August 9.30-3.30 at Somerset Earth Science Centre (SESC) Moons Hill Quarry, Stoke St Michael, BA3 5JU
Tuesday 13 October 9.30-1.00 at the Black Swan Arts Centre, 2 Bridge Street, Frome BA11 1BB
Come and have fun wet felting with locally sourced wool and stones. For more information see www.stepinstone-somerset.co.uk (workshops, walks, talks)
Just a funny story to keep you amused: the two huge quarry stones that I had chosen, measured etc and worked with for my forthcoming installation in Westdown Quarry were no longer in situ when I visited last week! They had been resited – just something an artist has to deal with and makes life more interesting!!
Salisbury Museum Discovery Day – Turner
A great day was had by all at the Salisbury Museum Discovery Day on 28 July. Here is a medley the Museum put together of some of the Post Cards made by some of the many visitors:
