A group of about 10 people, mostly Papermakers members, gathered around the cabinets eager to hear about the works on display. After an introduction by Sandra, each exhibitor gave a short talk on their work which triggered questions and short discussions about ideas and techniques.
So although there weren't many 'novices' to induct into our paper artistry world, we all benefited from hearing our fellow papermakers talk about their work, and allowed us a glimpse into each member's art practice. Afterwards we had an informal catch up over lunch.
Thanks to all that participated and thanks to Tricia for the photos.
