Tickets for Tea with … Jae Maries have arrived!


bertTickets have arrived for the afternoon tea and lecture by Jae Maries. This is ‘Bert’ made by Jae and bought by me several years ago when she had an exhibition at the Knitting and Stitching Show. I love him to bits and he has travelled to three different houses with me now. He is for ever walking through the wall at the top of my stairs. Her work has taken a slightly different direction now with some very personal diary related pieces and I am looking forward to seeing it all ‘up close and personal’        Jae is delightful and until recently was chairman of the 62 group. I hope you will support this event which this year is staged by a brand new textile group called Room 6 and are made up from tutors and past graduates who worked in Room 6 at the Cranbury Road annexe of Eastleigh College. this is the first event of several involving this exciting new group of artists.

Matthew Harris

on Sunday 16th March my final year students on the Foundation Degree at Eastleigh College organised and hosted an afternoon tea with Matthew Harris as the invited speaker. it was very successful with over 130 tickets sold. Here area few pics to whet your appetite. This is the second of these events, tea with Alice Kettle being the first last year. There is a move to make this an annual event which I am considering at the moment.
