Fiona Calder - Crowdfunding Appeal

Former York Art Society member and local York artist Fiona Calder is really excited to have launched a crowdfunding appeal!

To join her in 'An Artistic Celebration of Flowers' and learn more about her appeal go to http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/fiona-calder-designs...

Her aim is to launch her own range of greetings cards, and to hopefully introduce lots of other new beautiful flower art products to her online store, such as mugs, coasters and jewellery.

To see her beautiful floral prints and her new card collection go to www.fionacalderdesigns.co.uk

Everyone who generously helps with her crowdfunding appeal will be rewarded with lots of lovely cards or prints. All rewards offer excellent value for money, from just £15 for 6 greeting cards, or other rewards of gorgeous flower art prints and greeting cards to match everyone's budget.

If you don't want to pledge you can still help by telling any flower and art loving friends about it.

All pledges must be made by 2:06pm on the 29th July 2017, so if you're interested please don't delay!

Fiona would like to express her deepest thanks to everyone for their help.

Sue Ford Workshop

Our recent Sue Ford Collage Workshop on 3rd June was a great success.

13 members turned up laden with magazines and acrylic paints and were guided through the process of creating a collage painting with Sue's expert advice. Not much talking took place as we were all out of our comfort zone and all that could be heard was the ripping of magazines. Time passed so quickly and in our enthusiasm, some of us missed a proper lunch break.

Thank you to the members that took part in The Challenge!

Some great pieces were produced.  Not all were finished on the day, but hopefully we will see some of them as completed work in the next exhibition at the Medical Rooms in September.

If you wish to see more of Sue's own work, she will be exhibiting at The Danby Moors Centre National Park, between June 29th and July 25th. Open daily 10 to 4pm
