Why Hexham and Slaley Arts and Crafts?
Hexham Art Club has had to suspend meetings due to the COVID19 outbreak. We had several tutors lined up and some projects which we hoped would lead to exhibitions. Slaley has a Craft Group which has found it difficult to meet recently. It seemed that we could share some projects with a view to having an exhibition when the outbreak is over and people can meet again.
Please respect other people's need to socially distance

Can anyone identify these ducks, found in the Slaley Vicarage garden??
.....shell ducks at sunset. It's an imaginary landscape but I've tried to create a dramatic sky.
This is from an Ehrman tapestry kit, entitled "Day Four: Sun, Moon and Stars". It was completed before Christmas for Michael’s study:
The title refers to this biblical piece "And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also."
From Carol, started at Christmas and completed in lock-down
