Three more portraits added to Ken's pages.
Although former managers Debbie and Erika have now both moved on their work will still be contained here for a while. Also, the works of our ex-Tiller girl Elizabeth and those of Cy Colyer and his wife Pam will be retained for a while too in their memory as they sadly died some months ago.
Quite a few newcomers in the building now and am seeking more arty types from amongst them to join us here - submissions don't have to be just drawings or paintings, we welcome any sort of craftwork (any types of needlework, pottery, woodwork, writing, model making etc).

Today we welcome some work from Cy's daughter Susan. She has been inspired by her Dad's renewed efforts and also impressed by all of the other work contained on our site.

Wednesday 29th January 2020
Continuing to make steady progress in building the site and in recruiting more contributors, still a little way to go though and still trying to find more hidden talents amongst our community. Hope to have the site 'live' very soon now. We are re-thinking the exhibition idea though and have put plans for it on hold for the time being.
Tuesday 3rd December 2019
Kick off day for the website! It is still in the unpublished, conceptual, design and build stage but will very soon be ready to go live. Also, there are still a few shy artisans to be persuaded to join in and display their work - but they are being worked on so keep coming back to the site as we hope to include them soon. It is suspected that there are also a few others here whose artistic or craft pastimes have not yet come to light but hopefully they will be discovered and encouraged to join in.
There will probably be only infrequent entries here on this page but the display pages will be updated with the inclusion of new works from time to time.
We are also in the early stages of planning a small exhibition of our works and will keep you posted about that.
