Exhibition - doors open!

Having seen the weather forecast for our opening on Sunday we delivered all the work to the gallery on Saturday. Thank goodness we did!
Our opening day became one of the worst days imaginable for June, gusting winds and driving rain all morning made us doubt our sanity, but we went for it all the same.

After an intensive morning the gallery looked like a welcoming space and at 3pm we 'opened'. A quarter of an hour later we had our first visitor and then a steady flow of friends and colleagues, until 6pm when we gratefully closed and headed off for a quick half across the road. I was very pleased to see a couple of my ex-A level students - how lovely to have the tables turned and for them to be able to comment on 'Misses' work!
I would like to say a very big thank you to my intrepid friends who ventured out on such a truly horrible day, your company and support was very much appreciated.
The day did not look quite so bad from inside the gallery, and Mum's cups of tea kept everyone's spirits up. Thank you Mum.

Here are some pictures to whet your appetite, hope to see some of you over the next fortnight.

The exhibition continues until 25th June at Cotswold Craftsmen Gallery, Market Street, Nailsworth, Gloucestershire GL6 0BX, 10am -5pm (closed Sundays and Mondays)
