Wide range of entries at village arts and crafts show
Published 19/12/16



ABOUT 160 works were entered into this year’s Whitchurch arts and crafts show, which took place at the village hall.

Entries included paintings, drawings, sculptures, photography, needlework, knitting and cross-stitch.

The Orford Cup for adult art went to Chris Martin for a depiction of the village’s Ferryboat pub while Gwen Bruce won the Whitchurch Cup for adult crafts with her cross-stitch work Japanese Lady.

George Woolhouse won the CPL Photography Cup with his image Plat du Jour while the Joyce Voysey Prize, which drew a record 47 entries, went to Aidan Watkins with his metal wire sculpture Tree in Spring.

The winners in the children’s categories were Isabella Olinski, Poppy Dempster, Theo Holland, Amelie Dawson, Eleanor Buckley and Gabriel Neeson.


Organiser Sally Woolhouse said: “We had a constant stream of visitors and everyone always remarks on how nice it is. It’s a very sociable occasion and everyone appreciates the chance to get together.

“The standard of entries was very high and we had a good mix across the different categories. You never know what’s going to turn up and it’s amazing how talented people are.”
