Crowdfunder Launched for Outwoods Sculpture trail

To donate follow this link…

DONATE

ArtSpace have spent many hours developing plans and submitting funding applications to Arts Council England and Charnwood Borough Council for an Outwoods Sculpture Trail in 2022. Unfortunately we have not been successful with these core funding applications. We have, however, secured a Leicestershire County Council ‘Shire Grant’ of £5000 to run a series of creative workshops with  Mapelwell Hall School, Glebe House and Cobden Primary School to co-create three or four woodland installations for the trail. 

We are now launching a ‘justgiving’ crowdfunding page in the hope of raising some funds to offer modest commissions to a number of local artists to produce and install work for the trail and create a more substantial experience for the people of Charnwood and Leicestershire.

The proposed theme, ‘Harmony and Healing for Planet and People’, aims to promote personal and community well-being and increase awareness of environmental sustainability and draw links between the two.  

Please help us make these plans become a reality . Any donation, however small, will be very helpful and appreciated. All funds raised will be used to build a bigger and better Outwoods trail.

ART FAIR 12th & 13th November

 

Autumn Art Fair in Woodhouse Eaves.

The artists’ group ArtSpace Loughborough will be holding their annual art fair in Woodhouse Eaves Village Hall (Main Street, Woodhouse Eaves) on Saturday and Sunday 12th and 13th November. This year a total of 19 artists will be taking part. Many art forms will be shown including paintings, drawings, printmaking,
sculpture, ceramics, textiles, photographs and digital prints. All of the works will be for sale with prices starting at £2.00 for an original handmade card; limited edition prints from £25; and many original pieces being priced under £100. With hundreds of pieces to be browsed, there will be something to suit all tastes and pockets, and with Christmas fast approaching you could a snap up the ideal gift for a loved one.

Additionally, to the art fair, the group is running its fourth annual art competition for pupils from the village primary, St. Paul’s. The competition this year is to design a t-shirt for The Beacon Country Park May Day Challenge.

Doors are open from 10am to 4pm both days. Entry is free.

Handmade cakes and refreshments will be also be available, the proceeds of which will be donated to the British Legion Poppy Appeal. Last year over £100 was raised- the group are hoping to top this figure and will be baking furiously to ensure a range of
delectable bakes are there for your enjoyment.
