Textile Group @ Sprout Arts - Fortnightly on Tuesday's at 7pm

Colours, hands, and threads – oh, and CHAT!

 

CHAT meets fortnightly at Sprout Arts on alternate Tuesday evenings from 7 pm to 9 pm.  That's COLOUR, HANDS AND THREADS but really it's the opportunity to chat while we work on our own piece of textile work.   We're an open, informal group who are variously interested in working with fibres and colours in our hands - patchwork, applique, knitting and crochet, embroidery, weaving, spinning and plying, sewing and much else.  CHAT offers no tuition but you're welcome to pick the brains of those present.  Contact Geraldine Kelly on 07737 200110 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

About me:

My name is Geraldine Kelly. I’ve lived locally in Furzedown for about 20 years. Over many years, I have dabbled in lots of different textile techniques including some of those mentioned above. I enjoy learning new techniques and trying to work things out, or at least having a go.

Upcoming dates for 2019:

Tuesday, 17 Dec, 7-9 pm

Poetry at Sprout will be at Sprout Arts in Moyser Road bi-monthly on Friday 7-9pm.
As always, please choose a poem to read. If there is time, after an interval we'll read any further poems that people have brought, so bring a spare. Please let us know the title and author of your first poem a couple of days ahead so we can draw up an initial running order.

“We don’t read poems because, like bran flakes, they’re good for us; we read them because we love them – and if you haven’t found a poem you really love, keep looking and I am sure you will.” Erica Wagner

 

Sprout Out Art-Loans

Sprout Arts aim is to support artists and encourage local people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in creative activities and appreciate original art.

 

2019 Autumn ArtLoan Event


PLEASE RETURN YOUR ART LOANS
TO SPROUT ARTS ON SAT 26th & SUN 27th 10:30am-12pm OCT 2019


Our Autumn Art-Loan member's Private View is taking place on Friday 1st November 4-8pm at The Living Room, 19 Thrale Road SW16 - there will be refreshments, a chance to meet many of the artists and artwork can be chosen and taken on the night.

The public Open Day is on Sunday 3rd November 1-5pm when anyone can come in and see the work available, join the scheme and take home a work of art.

 

If you have fallen in love with your work of art and don't want to return it you can buy it now - please email us for the prices. Thank you!
We'd love you to share your experience on social media and please do send any photos, thoughts and suggestions!


The idea of starting an Art Loan initiative is simple, people who are members of Sprout will be able to borrow an original work of art for three months and pay nothing, the artwork would then be available to someone else.

The hope is that people who have never had original artwork in their homes will realise how wonderful it is and go on to become art enthusiasts and encourage their friends and neighbours too. Lending sessions take place quarterly at various local venues and will allow members to borrow one artwork for three months, free of charge.
