The South West held its 2019 AGM on Sunday 2 June at West Buckland Hall in Somerset. This is just off Junction 26 of the M5.  Our year had been a busy one with a successful and profitable exhibition in Durlston, Dorset in 2018 and various workdays on interesting topics. Rob and Sue were re-elected as Treasurer and Secretary for the coming year. We were sad to hear of the recent death of our friend Marilyn Goodearl who was an Associate Fellow of the Guild and, with her late husband Tom, a great supporter of the Guild and a long-term member.

Our arranged meetings now are Sunday 27th October 2019 at West Buckland (sandblasting with Viv Marshall), Sunday 26th January 2020 at West Buckland (stipple with Jan Studerus), Sunday 29th March 2020 (visit to Sonja Klingler’s glass blowing studio in Frome) and AGM 2020 on Sunday 24th May at West Buckland (bring latest work and food to share). Meetings in the Hall are at 11am and all welcome if in our area.

 

We are now looking forward to our next exhibition in 2020 at Durlston, near Swanage which has a beautiful gallery on the cliff top. This is hoped to take place over Easter next year.

 

Please contact either Sue or Rob to let us know you are coming or for further information about the SW Branch.
