Sarah (Exhibitions & Arts Officer) and Jan (Artist) have been busy bees! We now have marketing material, Mockingbird A5 Postcard and posters, promoting the programme of events taking place during Mockingbird.The exhibition which opens on Saturday 3rd May 2014 at 10.30am coincides with the first day of Cloth Road Arts Week.
Jan’s work is outstanding. The quality of work is subtle, presenting influences of her response to textiles in the collection. The craft activities she will deliver over the course of the summer are something not to miss and they are free to participate!
