Open Studio - report

Three girls looking pleased with their printmaking efforts at our recent Open Studio, with excellent instruction and demonstration provided by the very accomplished printmaker Colin Beaumont. from Leven.

Apparently the print workshop was busy for all of the four hours that we were open to the public.
Of course the warm drinks and nibbles,  helped engender a convivial atmosphere in this cold weather we have been experiencing of late but there certainly was a lot of interest in the huge range of artworks that were on exhibition.  Additionally greetings cards that artist members had for sale were extremely popular with visitors.

This is a photo of the cards that member Babs Pease, had available for purchase.  These are mainly made using lino cut as well as some that she has had made into reproductions of other artworks.  

Really compared to what you can buy on the high street, her cards are such a delight.  You can see more information about Babs  at her WEBSITE.  

In fact I was lucky enough to be in a position to buy one of Babs lovely lino prints of Penguins (above), which I got to give to one of my favorite nephews, as he is crackers about Penguins.

Thanks to chair of FDPW, Steve Ratomski for providing photos of the event.
