Visions of the tropics by Gauguin will be shown alongside his predecessors, such as William Hodges and Edward Gennys Fanshawe who accompanied Captain Cook to the South Pacific, as well as Nashashibi/Skaer’s new film.

Needle Felting Workshop for Beginners

Saturday, 19th January 2019

Come along to a beginners workshop, where you will learn how to sculpt wool using the needle-felting technique. I have just 10 spaces available for each session so to book please email us and I will request a £5 deposit to secure your place.
The workshop costs £15 and during 3 hours of crafting fun we will cover the basics of equipment and you will learn how to create a 3D shape, attach parts, add colour and a bit of personality to your sculpture.
I also ask beginners to pay an additional £1 deposit on the day against needle breakages. This enables me to keep the cost down and restock needles, as you may have a break or two when you are starting out and this seems the fairest way to spread the cost.
I provide all the equipment, materials and tea and coffee. Just bring yourself and some nibbles to share during the half-time break.
I will have a small supply of felting kits and wool available to purchase on the day if you wish to continue your new hobby.

You will look at some reproductions of Van Gogh’s works and Sarah will demonstrate some of his techniques before you either create your own version of your choice of his paintings or use his style to paint an image of your own. You may like to bring a reference photo to work from if you would prefer to create an original painting. Sarah advises that you choose an image of a person who isn’t showing too much of their teeth and if you would prefer to paint a self-portrait you will need to bring along a small self-standing mirror.
All abilities very welcome.
A professional artist and illustrator, the only English artist -animator to work on the film ‘Loving Vincent’ and, through sheer practice, an expert in the style of van Gogh.

Royal Cornwall Show

Thursday, 6th June 2019 until Saturday, 8th June 2019

Interested in crafts? Planning a wedding? Want to shop in Wadebridge town centre? Is woodland your thing?
Whatever your interest, we aim to make you very welcome here.
There’s something for every member of the family at the Royal Cornwall Show.
It’s the county’s biggest annual event and is brim-full of exhibits and activities which offer so much in the way of entertainment, competition, information, shopping and all that’s best in food and farming.
It's a time and place to meet old friends, conduct business, enjoy Cornwall in all its glory and to welcome thousands of visitors from outside our county.
This is a top agricultural show which attracts increasing numbers of animals, entered into the hundreds of classes which are refined each year. And year on year people travel from further and further afield in the hope of coming away with an award.
Dog and goat sections; rare breed classes. A top flower show and thriving countryside area. Rabbits, cage birds, cavies - even bees get noticed here!
We support and promote Cornish-grown and Cornish-produced food both in the trade section and in our own cafes and restaurants.
Main ring entertainment is mounted on a grand scale and the traditional steam fair is a colourful extravaganza; there are stages and avenues alive with music, song and dance.
You can come to the Royal Cornwall Show with a single-minded ambition to buy a tractor or a car. Here is where you will see them all on display.
