Di Pattinson is a textile artist. She works mainly with fleece, yarns and fibres, using different felting techniques creating 2D and 3D pieces.
Upwey’s Open Gardens weekend will be on 13th and 14th July.
As usual there will be lots of gardens open for the two days, plus teas and other entertainments. Further details nearer the date.
The exhibition is part of Open For Art, the visual arts Open Studio event across South Dorset from 18th May to 2nd June.
During their annual exhibition, the Upwey Potters are demonstrating their skills and will talk to anyone about their processes. There are various workshop sessions during the show.
Over the first weekend 18th/19th May there are free half hour have a go throwing sessions, promoted as part of the national Hey Clay event. Spaces are limited and must be pre-booked using the Eventbrite system on the potters’ Hey Clay page.
The throwing sessions will be two and a half hours long starting at 10am and 2pm, with limited numbers. This webpage gives details of the event, with a link to the special events and workshop page, which has an email link for booking workshops.
The Upwey Wishing Well (accessible from the Wishing Well Tea Rooms) is again being dressed by Maggie Cook and her team. It will be in place from the early May bank holiday for a couple of months.
