I can’t wait to see what next time brings as we look at the impact of World War 1 on local soldiers and their families and build on our artwork.  Our work is inspired by how we all feel about what an event that impacted on so many lives.

Happy clay days

Angele Van Den Heuvel  and I had our first chat with the Mullumbimby Scouts last night – What a fantastic group of young people. We are all looking forward to working together and having our art/ceramic exhibition Scouting Out Our ANZACS in November this year.

WW1 1914-1918 and the world commemorates 100 years since that war. To respect our local soldiers, together the local scouts and PAN artists Deborah Gower, Angele  van den Heuvel and Ros Collins will be researching World War One in relation to our local Mullum area to inspire us to create a number of artworks.

And in November we will be having an exhibition of our work at the Mullumbimby Library (stay tuned for more details)

Happy clays everyone – especially to our new Scouting friends.
