ARTISTS OF UPSALL
LARCHFIELD COMMUNITY CRAFT WORKSHOP
Designed and created by all the team at Larchfield Craft. All our members worked hard on this picture, which hangs in the main hall at Larchfield Community. We were inspired by the Winter season and the nature around us but also by the spirit and true meaning of Christmas. We are extremely proud of this work, and are currently working to produce our artwork for Springtime.
A Childhood Remembered
CLARE BRELSTAFF (1934-1997)
A crowd of youngsters in the lower left corner soliciting the attention of the oh-so-dynamic, doubled-up mother figure with a horse's head in the crook of her left elbow. A cat streams down from the top right.
Great Gable, my favourite mountain
Venus is a planet nearer the sun than our Earth and far hotter with a thick poisonous atmosphere and eternal yellow clouds shrouding its surface. I love doing space art. Venus is mysterious and only a few spacecraft haver ever photographed its strange surface.
One of many nameless small streams and waterfalls in the Lake District
BERYL WYLIE, STEPHANIE SMITH, CLAIRE MORLEY & ANNAMARIA KOVACS
The four ladies sat together to create this lovely picture. For us the social side of our workshop is as therapeutic as the work itself. It is lovely to see relationships develop and grow within our group. Each person contributes their own individuality and the final piece is the result of the commitment that individuals make by coming to work every day and being part of something special.
Civil War Ceramics
A reference to the Serbo-Croat conflict late last century and equally appropriate nowadays, maybe always.
A chalk and charcoal drawing of still life consisting of a pair of pliers and an apple.
A Sapling at Sunset
The tree often symbolises the person who's painting. They are here on the very edge of the green fertile ground, facing the hard red mountain, and at the critical time when the sun sets.
A Lakeland Ghyll
Indecision, a portrait
