2022 Nettlebed Art and Craft Show, held over the first weekend of August was again very successful.
We displayed 114 paintings from local artists in a wide variety of media. We were very pleased to sell sixteen of these. Local craftspeople sold items including jewellery, mosaics, lamps, needlework, woodturning, cards and ceramics. We also sold unframed paintings too.
Simon Pink won the favoutrie painting and Wendy Reed’s stall was the most liked craft stall.
We are dividing our proceeds of £1300 between seven local charities.
The proceeds from the sales of refreshments has been donated to the Nettlebed Senior Citizens’ Christmas party.
We need some new committee members as two are resigining at the end of this year. Please do contact us if you can help as we need to keep the show on the road! We meet about once a month from April to August. We need help with one or more of the following:- advertising in local Parish Magazines; finding companies or businesses to advertise in the catalogue; putting up posters and distributing flyers; and of course to help with running the show over the weekend. “Many hands make light work” is definitely true for this event. We often have a good laugh in between our discussions, and finish off the season in style with a meal in a local hostelry.
2023 show is planned for the weekend of 5th & 6th August
