Inspiration in Isolation – Christmas as usual!

Inspiration in Isolation – Christmas as usual!

Lockdown affected our members in contrasting ways. Many were inspired by the tranquility, the light and the stillness while others needed the therapeutic benefit of creating to help them keep to a routine and feel productive.

We have called our modest exhibition “Inspiration in Isolation” to showcase the work our talented Guild members have created during Lockdown. Each piece will be accompanied with some  words from the maker to give us some insight into the inspiration behind it.

“Inspiration in Isolation” will showcase from November 10th until December 10th and will be in the front section of our Wells Gallery at 23A Broad St. We will, of course, still be open for Christmas gifts and our usual treasures throughout the exhibition.

Under the current circumstances, we can safely accommodate 6 people at any one time so your patience is very much appreciated if the Gallery is busy.
