ibis-crickThis year’s convention will be at Crick again. It’s a convenient location, facilities are good, and the staff cater for our every need – near enough.

This year we have Peggy Harris coming from Nashville, Tennessee to do three days. At the AGM this year, members said they’d like a range of styles and difficulties to choose from, so we have also classes offered by Suz Humphreys (Surrey Crafts), Rowena Howell (BADFA Teacher), and me.

The event will run from Friday 31 March to Sunday 2 April and the format will be similar to last year’s (because it was so good, of course!).

On Friday, after a day’s painting we’ll relax over dinner, then there will be an evening of … something different. Last year we had a wine-fuelled evening of constructional competition. Who knows what will happen this year. Saturday; more painting, this time followed by the AGM, the members’ dinner, and an evening of art and experimentation – and may be wine. Sunday the last painting sessions of the weekend – then dispersal for those still standing.

As a side dish, there will be traders, demos, make’n’takes, and the usual chatter. Oh, and Ann’s cake – only for the brave!

I’m looking forward to it – a great way to drive out those winter blues! Will you be there?
