by Wendy Barber on November 16, 2012, no comments

It was good to receive this image from artist Rosemary Whitehead whom I first met when she was John’s assistant in Arundel and subsequently when she came to Charlton Cottage, also as a studio assistant. The use of colour is reminiscent of John Hinchcliffe’s rag rugs and very good to see. This work forms part […]

Clayesmore presents

by Wendy Barber on June 29, 2012, no comments

We gathered once more in the beautiful grounds of Clayesmore  School for the society’s literature event.  This year the weather was clement which made for a very relaxed and English summer outing. So who did we hear? First up was Roman Krznaric  who gave a very interesting talk, indeed performance, on his lifestyle philosophy. Much of […]

I went to Edinburgh this week and I thoroughly enjoyed taking time out in this lovely city. I had not been back to Edinburgh properly since the early 1980’s when John and I exhibited in the Festival craft tent in 1984 and a detail of our Hypericum plate was used for the poster. This photo […]

Happy New Year 2012

by Wendy Barber on January 4, 2012, no comments

On 1st January I watched the traditional mummers play performed by the Widcome Mummers  on their home ground. I was struck by the magnificent horse and rider. There was much humour and topical material with Olympian references all over. The musicians achieved the ancient, jolly sound that one associates so much with mummers plays.  It was […]
