Northern Contemporary Glass Society Exhibition

The Piece Hall, Halifax

I have just joined the Northern Contemporary Glass Society and will be taking part in their annual exhibition at Halifax Piece Hall from 5th to 14th July.  The exhibition will be in Unit 58 on the ground floor and will be open from 11.00 to 16.00 daily.

The exhibition will showcase a wide range of work by professional glass artists from the North of England so come and meet the artists, be inspired by their creativity and buy something original.  The following artists will be exhibiting:

Genevieve Thompson, Jane O'Neil, Gina B, Annette Vernon, Jane Littlefield, Karen Redmayne,  John Orson, Diane Mellor, Jo Whitehead (that's me)! and Anne-Kari Kramer.

The exhibition is part of the Halifax Festival, 10 days of amazing cultural events across Halifax.  Check out the website to see what other great events are taking place in Halifax

Grassington Festival - here I come!

For the first time I will be taking part in the Grassington Festival  Saturday 22nd June. 

Grassington, North Yorkshire
Grassington is a small, but very popular, village in the Yorkshire Dales - not too far from Skipton.  I shall be outside under a covered market stall (must search the attic for the bunting) from 10.00am with a display of new glass items alongside some favourites. There will be a lot of activity going on during the day with street theatre and music, craft stalls and shops.  I am actually mentioned on the website HERE but you will need to scroll down the page to find me! 

There is plenty to see and do in Grassington with lots of walking country, great views and lovely pubs to go for lunch.  We go there often as we like to walk between  Hebden and Grassington or Burnsall and Grassington , walking back via Thorpe.  There's lots of parking too with the Yorkshire Dales National Park car park 500 yards down from the village square.

So, if you are in the area, please come by and say hello!
