Springfields Horticultural Society Competition

Members of Spalding Arts & Crafts society are invited to take part in a tile painting competition.

Springfields Festival Gardens are going Delft next year !!

They would like us to paint tiles in the Delft style for a window box display full of Rembrandt tulips.

Please email Maggie on publicity@saacs.org.uk to reserve a pack. We hope to have the packs out before Christmas, entries to be in by 28th Feb 2021.

Each pack will comprise of a 10″ x 8″ (approx) tile, a pot of paint, a brush, instructions & ideas.

The tiles must be painted in PORTRAIT format using just the blue paint provided. You can go for a traditional look or do a more modern take on it – eg wind turbines instead of windmills, modern dress instead of old.. You can go for a single image on the tile or a composite of several images – the choice is yours.There are a wide range of images online, it’s surprising just what was depicted on the old tiles!!

Entry is free and there will be prizes.

Depending on the uptake it may be possible to paint more than one tile.

Please note that, as with all SACS competitions, challenges & exhibitions, entry is restricted to paid up members.

These are a couple of tiles that Maggie has created in the search for the right paint.
