January 2018

Each month the Zero Nine group get together and often one of the members runs a workshop. This time we brought in the new year with one run by Alison.  Many of you will have attended her screen painting sessions and will know how much fun we had!  Some members were using natural dyes and others Procion dyes.  We all finished the day with a satisfying collection of exciting fabric.  Thank you Alison for all your preparation and guidance. We all had a great day.

Best wishes for this Christmas and for 2018

At this busy time of year we wish you all a safe and happy Christmas.  We look forward to another year of creativity, especially as we are back at Sir Harold Hilliers Exhibition space in August. We hope to see past visitors and new one!

Petersfield Arts and Crafts Exhibition

Zero Nine members range far and wide over Southern England. One of our members is exhibiting in the popular Petersfield Arts and Crafts Exhibition.

Workshop with Amanda Hislop

Recently we spent a fantastic day with Amanda Hislop who gave us such inspiration with creating Sketchbooks.  In addition to Zero Nine members we were delighted that our “old” tutor, Terrie Hitchcock joined us.  Pictured are some of our experiments!

End of the Exhibition

It does not seem possible that  after all the anticipation,  our exhibition is over. We had an amazing three weeks at Sir Harold Hillier Gardens, with so many visitors and appreciative comments.  The Winter Gardens were beautiful so lots of  people enjoyed both the gardens and the exhibition.

We shall be putting up more images from the exhibition, but our hot news is that Janet Steer, who was a  guest artist for the exhibition, is going to join the Zero Nine Group of Textile Artists. We are all very pleased.

Exhibition update

Can’t believe we are almost two thirds through the exhibition.  We are having a great time with lots of sales and even more lovely visitors.  Sir Harold Hillier Gardens is a great place, seems always to be teeming with visitors who seem very interested in our exhibition!  The cafe is very welcoming and the Winter Gardens are looking great.  We were pleased when we put the exhibition up, but it is our visitors who have made such lovely comments about our work that have inspired us to be proud!

If you have not managed to make a visit, hopefully you will be able to in the coming days. It ends on 20th February.shh4
