Stitched Pictures

The latest exhibition at Craft Arena is Stitched Pictures by Donna Howard. 

Donna has taken the inspiration for her current work from places she has visited. Her pictures have been digitally manipulated, then printed onto fabric and enhanced with machine and hand stitching, building up the texture to create depth. The result is a collection of memories of places, views and landscapes she has visited over the last few months.

Donna's work will be on display until Sunday 12th January. Gallery 50 will be closed on some days over the Christmas and New Year period, see below for more details. 

Donna will be holding a workshop at Craft Arena on Saturday 14th December from 10.30 - 4pm, showing us how to embellish jars to make these pretty decorations which can be used at home or as gifts. If you would like to join us, email or

Christmas and New Year Opening

Our Christmas and New Year opening times are listed below. I'll be taking a few days off to take advantage of the turkey, mince pies and chocolate, and will be opening a little later just to make sure that all the sherry has evaporated. (Actually it's more likely to be a good single malt - I do like a slurp of Highland Park occasionally!) The diet will begin early in the New Year!

Monday 23rd December  - Friday 27th December 2013  CLOSED
Saturday 28th - Sunday 29th December 2013 OPEN 11am - 4pm
Monday 30th December 2013 - Friday 3rd January 2014

Normal opening hours from Sunday 5th January.
