Preparing for Journeys East

I am pleased to say that all of the artwork has now been completed for Journeys East- A Discovery of Hidden Treasures. A gorgeous array of collages, tiles, vases and silks have been made by West Hampstead Women’s Group, Aaina Women’s Group, Newham Family Learning Services and West Ealing Deaf Women’s Minority Group. To celebrate the completion of this monumental challenge and exciting year of creative activity, project participants visited the Wallace Collection to design the layout of the exhibition and to create interpretation for Journeys East. During this day West Hampstead Women’s group worked very hard at planning the layout of vases in the exhibition cases and Aaina Women’s group planned the order that the exhibition’s silks will be presented in. Groups also worked very hard at writing personal labels for their artwork. It was a really fun day and it gave the ladies a chance to look back and take pleasure from the beautiful artwork they have made and the creative journey they have embarked on in creating such a remarkable exhibition. Journeys East will open on the 17th November and will remain open until the 13th January and so do please come along to see this incredible and sumptuous exhibition.
