Successful First Phase of Workshops

Last week saw the culmination of the first five artist residencies in rural villages - Ashill, Necton, Shipdham, Mattishall and Harling - with fantastic exhibitions of work in both Ashill and Necton and a range of arts based activities happening in the other villages. 

Residents of Ashill loved seeing their Cyanotype prints exhibited in the Community Centre, with a brilliant turn out of visitors coming along to admire the residents' work and indulge in a slice of chocolate fudge cake or a scone with cream and jam!  Artist Vicki Johnson reiterated her thanks to the village archive for their wealth of local photographs, kick-starting the first workshop with great success. 

Necton village also had a great turn out for their exhibition at the Community Centre on Saturday, with many new faces coming to admire the work over a cup of tea and piece of artist Sarah Harley's apple cake. The range of work produced was great to see and the Necton spin off  sewing club is still going strong! 

Other activities happening across half term week included Glass House Dance's takeover of Harling's Old School Hall, culminating in a performance of their 'A Little Bit of Light' contemporary dance, using stories told to them by residents throughout the week. In Mattishall, Lisa Little's 'Drop in & Stitch' workshops, unearthed tales from the village and provided residents an opportunity to get to know each other a little better, chatting whilst therapeutically stitching memories and anecdotes onto tea towels. In Nearby Shipdham, poet and writer Martin Figura was busy entertaining the ladies and gents from the Shipdham Knitters, Shipdham History Group and Shipdham Manor Care Home, enjoying much frivolity and plenty of biscuits whilst working on his Shipdham oral history project. Proudly sporting his residency tank top, Martin's final appearance was at Saturday's Church Fair, where he and his wife Helen Ivory set up their poetry takeaway! 

In the New Year the Silver Social welcomes singer, Kate Dimbleby, who will be taking her 'Sing Your Song' workshops on a tour of the town's libraries, before stopping off in each of the villages. Look out soon for more details.
