Last Thursday I took a drive into March, intending to grab a coffee at the library and sketch some of it's visitors. I noticed a woman walking infront of me had a box of art materials and watched as she entered a room off the main library floor. I'm not sure what possesed me but...I followed her inside! I introduced myself and asked about the group. It seems the group is more of a gathering than an instructional group, this really appeals to me...being in the company of like minded people for a couple of hours a week. Sadly the group is full and has a long waiting list, I put my name down. The chair (Gill Jolley) invited me to stay the morning as her guest and I spent a wonderful two hours looking at other's work and chatting. The group knew of me from my column in the Cambs Times and it was a rather odd but very pleasant experience.
The group was extremely welcoming and I had a great time. (Thank you all!)
Before I left the group booked me to hold a mini workshop in April, which was the cherry on a deliciously iced cake!
