We are an informally organised club with members drawn primarily from Felmersham and Radwell. We meet most Wednesday mornings in the Committee Room at the Village Hall - but we do also meet in smaller numbers and at varying venues for one off workshops and short courses - whatever best suits the keenest!

     looking back over our first year ..

During 2005 our Wednesday sessions have attracted up to 16 of us .. which speaks well of our two teachers, Alison Head from Bedford and Jane Rhodes from Cranfield. Alison has championed the basics of drawing with charcoal, pastels and pencil and her coaching has been greatly appreciated. Many of us now enjoy pastels as much as our watercolours, acrylics and oils. Jayne has concentrated on the basics of watercolours, especially colour mixing .. and being more adventurous with this medium!

The one-offs and short courses have included a very successful Watercolour Landscapes weekend with Frank Halliday, landscapes, flowers and still life in oils with Mike Croker from Bedford and forays out to Cranfield to join in with Jayne Rhodes' regular Tuesday classes.

On Wednesday 14th December 2005 our session included a Christmas drink with some munchables and an informal exhibition of work done during the year .. every one of them deserved to be framed!.. which just shows how well we are progressing.

Perhaps in 2006 we will be confident enough to hold our own exhibition. How about Creative Felmersham in conjunction with The Flower Arranging Club and the Ouse Valley Patchwork Club?
