Memorial hall hosts exhibition of local skills

Colyford Memorial Hall hosted another successful Villages in Action (VIA) event with the Devon Guild of Craftsmen.

The exhibition featured prints produced by Anita Reynolds, who walked the 630 miles South West Coast Path throughout 2012, 2013 and 2014 and produced drypoint plates each day. On show were the final 30 she completed on her trek.

Other guild members who displayed some of their work inspired by the landscape of the South West included ceramicist Philippa de Burlet, felt-maker Carol Timms, aluminium artist and jewellery maker Caroline Parrott, and sound artist Richard Povall also.

Event promoter Helen Maynard said: “It is great to be able to work with Villages in Action to welcome professional artists into the hall to inspire the local community.”

The chairman of Colyford Memorial Hall Trustees, Simon Card added: “These Villages in Action programmes are very interesting and enjoyable bringing a wide variety of quality events to villages such as Colyford for the local community to enjoy.”
