Here's the pics from a great night in the best space in leigh-STORM MEDIA'S home

We raised approx £500 for charity and a bit to keep the trail going next year.

It was an entertaining night watching people spending, artists swirmingand everyone bartering their postcards at the end.

Thanks to all that attended, created and donated work.

Last friday was the second of the life drawing sessions.
It's a good opportunity to get your hand /eye back into drawing ,

There was 9 of us this week, and the cost was the princely sum of £3 thanks to the Community College letting us use the room.

Its a really relaxed class with no tuition, usually consisting of a series of short poses leading up to a longer one.

The sessions run on the last friday of the month,the next session friday the 27th March at 7.30pm.

Anyone interested needs to contact Susan Allen or leave a comment.
