Day One to Ten Studio in Action

I think we can call the 'Studio in Action' exhibition a success with almost 400 visitors over the 10 days the exhibition was open in the Hayloft. Every day one of 'The Material Girls' was in residence and working on a project of their choice, it was interesting to engage in conversation with the visitors either about the work in the exhibition, our own work or both. This is only a small part of our work with Rainham Hall, it is ongoing, some of the work can still be seen in the main house. As they say a picture is worth a thousand words so ..........
