Upcoming - Martin Dutton talk, Monnington Court, Fringe Festival!

Three things for you (oh, we spoil you rotten)!

Firstly, on Thursday 6th June we have Martin Dutton coming along to give us a talk and watercolour demo. Martin has kindly sent along this example of his work:

Secondly, on Saturday 15th June we're heading to Monnington Court. This is from the email sent around by Ruth Tune:

Monnington Court, Hereford, HR4 7NL – Saturday 15th June
A plein air visit to Angela Conner’s home where, besides her sculptures, are the famous Morgan horses, and beautiful gardens, plenty to sketch. Go in your own time and meet at about 10 o’clock

International sculptor Angela Conner is known for her large scale abstract sculptures that take pride of place in public spaces. Engineered to respond to natural forces and elements, they entice viewers to watch their gentle movement.
So while it could be said that Angela’s studio is a temple to nature, the beautiful gardens at her Herefordshire home, Monnington Court, serve as a temple to her work. Nestled in the Wye Valley, the medieval house is surrounded by 25 acres of parkland, lake and herb gardens, with the famous mile-long avenue of pines and yews planted in the mid 17th century. Dotted around the tranquil gardens and private walkways are examples of Angela’s kinetic sculptures.

Ruth has also provided this map (if you need further details, enter the postcode into Google Maps and get directions from your starting point):
