Dovenby WI February 2015
Vice president Nita Eubank opened the meeting and acting secretary Carole Colquitt read the minutes of the January meeting, which were duly accepted.
Nita introduced our speaker for the evening, Annie Kendall, a wire sculptor. Annie's works are masterpieces of quite incredible animal sculptures. She is a local artist who started in 2007. As lover of dogs, domestic pets of all descriptions, horses and wildlife found on her doorstep, Annie is able to create wire sculptured animals. She uses reclaimed and waste wire, and works wherever possible in daylight with just her bare hands and wire cutters. Her work captures the movement and beauty of the animal.
We were able to view her fantastic work, which in
some cases, can take from one week to months to complete. Her work is on display
and available to buy at Number Fifteen on Main Street in Cockermouth, and it can
also be viewed at:-
The competition, based on an animal figure was won by Nita Eubank, with Rosemary Haston in second place.
Joyce Thompson and Sheila Wilkinson won the quiz, and Hazel Graves won the raffle.
Meetings are usually held at Bridekirk Dovenby School on the second Thursday of the month at 7:30pm. More details and a programme are to be found on http://www.bridekirkparish.org.uk/wi
