PAST ACTIVITIES

On July 3rd we had John Harrison to give a Pen and wash workshop. We had a full house and enjoyed his visit. Many of us learnt tips and had fun with John's carefree teaching methods.t


The Morpeth Northumbrian Gathering on April 6 to 8 has been another opportunity for the Morpeth Art Group to share our work with the public. It was very well received! Here are some pictures of the weekend.
