Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th December 2016
Moorlinch, our village of fewer than 200 people, can boast several artists and arts & crafts businesses despite its size. Welcome to our annual pre-Christmas event: part exhibition, part Christmas shopping, part glass-blowing! I shall be opening my studio, hanging pictures on the walls, and have art, calendars, wrapping paper, cards and whatever else I can find, on display and for sale. Meanwhile up the road there will be more too see. The full line-up is:
Jenny Graham – stylised landscape paintings, drawings and photo-etchings of the West Country.
“showing a new series of my atmospheric paintings. Small and affordable for £50 each, only be available at this price from my studio. Also unframed etchings and landscape paintings. Some framed, some not. I will be offering tea/coffee and homemade cake as well. Lots of bargains.”
Anne Farmer – paintings
Paintings, cards and calendars – scenes of Somerset, Cumbria and more.
Somerset Stitch – creativity through stitch in Somerset and beyond
– Pam Martin’s new business just moved into Moorlinch
“Pop in to my Somerset Stitchery (previously The Pottery) and hand stitch a padded Christmas decoration in wool felt and hand-made metallic fabric – £3 per decoration. Fabric, haberdashery, patterns and a selection of locally stitched accessories will also be on sale.”
Silver Tree Crystal (Saturday only)
Glassblowing, including the opportunity to blow your own glass bauble. Pre-booking advised for this activity, but even if you don’t book, it’s still amazing to watch. Tel: 01458 211101, email: email@example.com
Nancy Farmer – an eclectic blend of wild swimming, alternative fairies and naughty cats.
