Art in Action 2015

I've just heard that 2016 will be the last Art in Action ever. So sad. Such an amazing event that will be sadly missed. This year's date is already in my diary, but I wanted to show you how brilliant last years event was.
........Art in Action 2015 was as a sunny and inspiring as ever.
The Show was held on part of a working farm at Waterperry. There was plenty of space for parking and for the twenty plus marquees that were bursting with every artistic talent imaginable.

This fabulous Sculpture was at the entrance to the Show
I had a wonderful day out with a fellow 'mad textile' girlfriend. Our first port of call is always the Textile Tent - so much talent! I loved chatting to the artists and finding out about the techniques & materials they used. It was a perfect time to check out if they had spaces on future workshops. Between us we managed to chat to every wool, textile, embroidery, illustrative, printing and clay artist at the Show - that's lots of talking!

By the end of the day, we were on such a high - our feet were killing us, our shopping bags were full and our heads were bursting with ideas. A perfect day.
We couldn't wait to get home and try out some ideas for ourselves.
I can't wait for Art in Action 2016!

  1. How amazing a coincidence, my mum and sister were there. Mum who lives in rochdale was visiting my sister who moved to Witney a few years ago,
    I've been to waterperry a couple of times. I believe it's going to be the last art in action this year
