April has been a busy month for me...
At the end of March I put the finishing touches to the Easter Candle sculpture for Union Chapel. I addressed the congregation on Easter Sunday, to talk about how the sculpture was made, and the different meanings behind the felt symbols that I'd embroidered onto the cloth. The eggs were blown and decorated at the Open Wednesday art sessions at the chapel, and I included symbols of flowers, birds and rabbits for spring, as well as the Babylonian Goddess Ishtar, amongst the traditional symbols of the Easter Candle - the cross, alpha and omega, five grains of incense and the year - 2018. Many thanks to Vaughan and Karen at Union Chapel for making this happen, and their ongoing help and support.
I'm very happy to tell you that the art drop ins on Wednesdays at Union Chapel now take place every week, with the launch of The Culture Cafe. Come and discover magical music, fabulous food and art activities, in wonderful surroundings every Wednesday between 11am and 2pm.
Union Chapel is on Compton Terrace in Islington, London, N1 2UN. Art activities are free, with materials provided. I hope to see you there soon!
For the next few weeks we will be exploring spring, making craft flowers out of paper. These will be displayed at the summer fete in Compton Gardens on Sunday 10th of June, midday - 4pm.
