Bring and Buy Feb 2016

This is was our second outing for another attempt to buy some bargains as well as getting rid of some unwanted art books and materials. The funds are now looking a bit healthier for our meal out in the summer…we raised another £25, thanks again to all those you got involved.

Carole Dawber – Planted and Picked

Our very own Carole Dawber is exhibiting a large number of stitched and appliqued embroideries at Martin Mere from the 1st Feb to the 16th March. As well as launching her own website she also has time to have more work in another show at the Craft Open – Platform Gallery from the 23rd Jan to the 16th April. Carole still finds time to attend our demonstrations and workshops as well as social events…please use the links below to find out more!



CHET 27-29 Dec

Crosby Hall Educational Trust will be holding their annual art fair this next weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. If you have never been, you must go and check out the 100′s of quality original and ‘affordable’ art works, alongside fine crafts from around the local area. And when you have finished shopping, you can have lunch or perhaps just a cake and a cup of tea. Please see the link below for more information.


Les Darlow Pastel Demo

On the 7th of December in our art room, Les Darlow from Blackpool will be demonstrating his landscape pastels for us, he is known for dramatic weather inducing skies, I think a lot of people will learn a lot from Les and I am looking forward to it. If you are interested in seeing this demonstration and you are not a member, it is just £3, please ring the Chair to book or email the club. Hope to see you there.

Sefton Open 2015

This Saturday the 28th, the Sefton Open which incorporates the Palette Club will open its doors until the 19th of December at the Atkinson in Southport. Please go and have a look at not our members work but other art groups from around Sefton as well as the individuals who are exhibiting with the Palette Club. Last year was a good show and I am sure this year won’t disappoint either.

Bring and Buy Another Success

Well we did it again….cleared our cupboards out and dusted our book shelves and raised some £50! We will have another session in the New Year…just in case Father Christmas doesn’t bring us exactly what we wanted! Thanks to everyone who supported this.

Bring and Buy Success

Well after clearing out our cupboards of art materials that we were never going to use and making room for new paints and paper we managed to raise (including some brew dosh) we banked £65 towards our summer jollies! Thanks to all that brought and bought!
