Springfields Delft Tiles

Notices, What's New Posted on Tue, March 02, 2021 11:55PM

Members of the society were asked by Springfields Horticultural Society to create tiles in the Delft style for a competition – these are the results.

The tiles will be judged soon. 1st & 2nd places will be decided by a team of judges. There will also be a public vote. This will take place online – details will be shared once this goes live.

The tiles will form part of a larger display at the Springfields Festival Gardens.

Covid-19 update

Update 28th June 2020

July & August meetings are now cancelled due to the ongoing situation. We hope to resume in September. Please check the website, Facebook page & your emails for updates.

Sadly our July Ayscoughfee Exhibition is also cancelled.

Please help support the society by paying your subs which were due at the April meeting, either by bank transfer or cheque. Please let Ann Dring know that you have paid. The society has expenses to pay even if we are not meeting at the moment. Many thanks to those who have already paid.

There is now a Facebook group for members of the society so that we can still have challenges & maintain some contact. Click on the link on our Facebook Page to request to join – just a couple of questions to confirm you are a paid up member.

Keep safe & Happy Painting.

Covid-19 Update

To all members & visitors

Covid-19

In light of the latest directives the committee have decided to cancel the April & May demonstration meetings, the Spring Flower Show Competition & the April & May Hub meetings. We are waiting to hear whether the Pinchbeck Church exhibition will be cancelled, but it probably will. We will make a decision at the end of April re further meetings.

Please help support the society by paying your subs which were due at the April meeting, either by bank transfer or cheque. Please let Ann Dring know that you have paid.

I am setting up a closed Facebook group for members so that we can still have challenges & maintain some contact.

Hopefully this will just be a temporary blip in our existence but in the meantime keep safe & Happy Painting.

Covid-19

Notices Posted on Mon, March 16, 2020 01:34PM

Coronavirus, Covid-19

Having discussed the government’s latest advice on the virus the committee have decided that demonstrations and ‘painting together’ sessions will go ahead as normal unless the picture changes.

It would be very helpful if you could arrive with the correct money for entry & raffle to save handling change.

If you feel unwell – a cough which has come on recently, a high temperature, shortness of breath, headaches – please stay away from the meetings.

If Pinchbeck Village Hall or the Hub shuts, we will lose our meeting-place and meetings will have to be cancelled or postponed. Similarly, if the demonstrator is forced to cancel at short notice, the event will not go ahead. Until then, assume the programme will be fulfilled as normal but check your emails regularly, especially near to planned events. The information will also be on Facebook & the website

Daffodils to Dahlias – Art competition

Notices, What's New Posted on Sat, January 11, 2020 02:10PM

Entries not due in until 7th April but this gives you time to plan.

Daffodils to Dahlias – Springfields Gardens through the Seasons‘ Competition

Springfields Horticultural Society are again sponsoring a competition for our members. This will be held at the Spring Flower & Gardening Show 18/19th April in the Springfields Events Centre

There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd & Public vote

The subject can cover any aspect of the gardens, be it flowers that grow there or scenes of the garden in any season. Images to be no larger than 20” x 20” including any mount or frame. Mounted paintings should be wrapped in cellophane – we do have a few mounts/cellophane wrappers left for an 8”x12” picture.

Remember that we are an Arts & Crafts Society so entries can be textiles, embroideries etc but must be able to be hung.

Framed pictures / canvas on a frame must be strung properly for hanging – the little hooks etc on bought frames are not enough. Hand in will be on the 7th April at the demonstration. Unsold paintings will be brought to the 5th May demo meeting. One entry per person.

There are reference photos on the website for anyone that needs them.
