The next Guild meeting is on Saturday, 6 June 2015 in the Barn Hall of the Amersham Community Centre. We meet at 2pm.
The Thread of Life: Spinners, Spiders, Weavers and Witches
Nicola Lowe will explore the potent image of the spinner and weaver as depicted by artists from pre-history to the present day.
What do the Three Graces of ancient Greece, Vermeer’s Lace Maker or Louise Bourgeois’ Maman spider sculptures tell us about art, society, power and creativity?
This complex theme will be examined by Nicola using a mixture of art, anthropology and anecdote.
Gilly will hold a raffle. We are always grateful for donations to the raffle. Just bring them along on the day.
If you have anything to sell it can go on the sale table.
As usual there will be plenty of time to exchange gossip over a cup of tea.
