We had a Gallery Exhibition and offered everyone the opportunity to take part in an individual and/or group Challenge. The main aim was of course to have fun making something beautiful, and to share it at the Festival in the Exhibition; but there were also judges, a Gallery Viewing reception on Saturday, and some prizes. Everything in the Challenges was done to reflect the Festival theme of "Beside the Sea" and the entries were anonymous.
Group Challenge- area Chapters /Groups
We felt a bit cheeky but very pleased when our Essex Group Challenge (shown above- "Deckchair Memories") won the Group Challenge. Essex were given a prize of some kits (such as cyanotype and indigo) donated by Rainbow Silks, which we will be trying out in the coming year!
