A year ago on Saturday, EAST was able to meet, at last, in person. It was a bright sunny day and the first time we’d actually been able to see everyone’s work for our then prospective exhibition, Transformation.
We had arranged for a photographer, Charlie Alexander (farliephotography.co.uk), to spend the day with us to photograph our work. She worked extremely hard, not only taking pictures of our work from interesting perspectives but also ones of each artist alongside her exhibit.
We thought these images would look good on our website but we didn’t realise how invaluable they would be to our exhibitions.
On Friday Libby and I spent several hours at Braintree Museum making a display of those photographs, in the corridor leading from the galleries to the hall, in preparation for the Textile Fair next Sunday (15th May).
As on other occasions, EAST will be running a ‘drop-in’ workshop in the Victorian Classroom. This year the visitor will have a chance to try out the basic techniques to make a rag rug.
There will also be the opportunity to view the sketch/workbooks which led to the creation of those exhibits and to meet several members of the group.
Below are some more boards which can be viewed at the Museum.
And finally…. The last board to be added to the display and Libby poses, in fine glamour model style, and reveals Melinda’s photo board.
