The Women’s Arts Association autumn show set a challenge to members: to make something out of cardboard. It was another success, with the artists coming up with new creations for the exhibition in Llanover Hall.
My friend Kathy brought her work and we walked from Cardiff station to Llanover in glorious sunshine. It was a shame that the walkway round the stadium was closed and we could only see the artwork (including Amelia Unity Thomas’) from the other side of the river.
Jacqueline and Patricia were taking delivery and there were some great pieces, like the Punch and Judy and a Grayson Perry-esque vase.
We added our contributions. To keep mine cheerful, I had been muttering “Cardi McCardboard” to myself as I layered bright yellow poster paint onto the card. Kathy’s had depth, winding into the trees.
The opening went well with Esyllt George performing and friends catching up.
Women’s Arts also had Corrie Lewis Bishop to give a talk about her ceramics. She also had us making cards and objects, which was informational and lots of fun.
