Arts events in Fulbourn Cambridgeshire
Art & Crafts in Lockdown exhibition – Sat. 28th Nov. 2020
As part of the planned Fulbourn Winter Festival on Saturday 28th Nov 2020 (tbc), there will be an exhibition of Arts & Crafts in Lockdown in the Townley Memorial Hall, Home End, Fulbourn, CB21 5BS. Opening times will be published in due course.
This will be of work produced by village artists and crafters during this bizarre period of Lockdown. We want this to be an exhibition, not a selling opportunity and so we are looking for strong pieces that reflect this unique period. For example, one group has been working on creating a Social Distancing Quilt that will be displayed and another quilt is being produced in the village which would be displayed alongside it. The exhibition will conform to covid guidelines in force at the time and will be stewarded.
The hanging / displaying space is not huge so depending on the scale of pieces, we’d ask for up to three examples of your work. We would like to display ceramics, textiles, sculpture, carving, printing, painting, photography etc. We will have to do a certain amount of selection in order to both avoid repetition and to ensure adequate spacing. Selection will be by a small panel of active arts/crafts people in the village.
Please send in images and details of up to three pieces of your work, with their dimensions, to one or other of the email addresses below. The exhibition is open to people of all ages. There are also plans to have tables for the sale of works available elsewhere so there will be other opportunities to sell items.
If you are interested in submitting some of your work or know of artists / crafts people in the village who might be interested please ask them to contact:
