Julie Wrathall’s encaustic wax demonstration in May was fascinating and much enjoyed by all who came. Most of our demonstrations are open meetings and several visitors always come. It was fascinating to see how wax, applied with a hot iron, can produce amazing results and, if you don’t like it, you can always iron it out and start again! We have several encaustic wax artists in the club, so study their work at the next exhibitions.
The Summer Exhibition was more successful this year and, as usual, we had accolades concerning standard, presentation, etc. We will continue to open on Monday as well as the weekend as long as we take money! This year we took £1,500 on Monday, which was amazing and worth opening for. People often want to take a second look before parting with their cash. This year Mitzie Green donated a painting to be raffled, which was very generous of her. I shall report who the lucky winner is in the next Diary.
Remember the Club is open to all Little Gaddesden residents – painters or otherwise. We welcome non-painters, especially ones who like to help and be part of the Club. Also they can then come to the parties and enjoy good food and chatter. Do get a form from Alison Greene (843667) and come and join us.
