Art Exhibition

This weekend there is an Art Exhibition in March Town Hall, Cambridgeshire. It is free to go and see it and well worth a visit.

I entered my Clematis and Mushrooms into it. I have put a rather high price on the Clematis because I don't really want to sell it. But, if somebody is willing to pay £1495 for it, I can always make another.



I have never put a picture of the finished mushrooms on here, so here they are.

I went to the opening reception on Friday. There were lots of people there and lots of comments about my Clematis. But nobody bought it!

For me, however, the highlight of the evening was seeing all the childrens work on the boards.

On Friday morning there had been a workshop for some of the local schools. The chilren had re-created some of the artwork in the exhibition. I was delighted to see that so many of them had chosen my mushrooms to re-create!

These are the ones from All Saints School.





One child did a wonderful re-creation of my clematis and another did the mushrooms.

Apparently, there were lots more mushrooms but the children chose to take them home.



And these are the ones from Burrowmoor School.

As you can see, lots of mushrooms!

















And some of my favourites which were on display.

Go Bananas by Heather Kinnear.




The name of the Apple by Jenny Furlong





  1. I love the mushrooms. No wonder the children were inspired!
    The clematis is just stunning!

  2. These are just beautiful. If I had a spare couple of thousand! Adore the children's drawings.

  3. Oh dear! such a lovely exposition! Children are such a great observers and they can create beautiful things! I think they mostly chose mushrooms because of their simplicity.
    Well done!

  4. I do love your clematis, but I have to say the childrens mushrooms are amazing, what a compliment to have your work recreated like that!!

  5. Love the clematis and the mushrooms and think the children have done a fabulous job with thier pictures.

  6. There is lots of great art work there :) Well Done all

  7. What a lovely post ... Great art work from everyone!

  8. Your work is lovely.

    And so is the children's. Children are amazing and they see the world in such a wonderful way. They are so creative.

  9. Thanks for sharing these with us Enfys, love all the childrens pictures :-)

  10. They are all fab, love what the children have done.

  11. Just wanted to say I saw your clematis in "Inside Crochet" and was bowled over - and had to come see. Even my husband was very impressed. If you ever write it (or part of it)up I will be in the queue to buy the pattern!
