SCULPTURE GROUP

The above pictures were taken at the Sculpture group visit to Derek Howarth’s workshop/studio, at Radlett, where 12 HVA members had a very enjoyable and informative afternoon exploring relief sculpture by making impressions in sheets of clay and then taking plaster casts of them.

The next get together is planned for June 24 when Martin Blindell will be taking us for a little country walk (details to follow) in the environs of his home village.  Lots of fresh air, a little exercise, some food and a chance to natter and make plans.  If you wish to be added to contact list please email Paul at pb.sculptor@btinternet.com

Future dates will be confirmed but currently the scheduled hosts are: JULY - Norman Emms; AUG - Dawn Dominic; SEPT - John Farnham.

There is no formal group leader as hosts are rotating month on month. However it is desirable for the group to be represented at HVA Meetings.  If you are interested in this representative role please email chair@hvaf.org.uk for a no obligation chat about what is involved.
