Local charities to benefit from Artisan Fair!
The Two Rivers’ Artists are a group of talented people who live between the rivers Ant and Bure on the Broads. The group are renowned for their traditional skills and hand crafted work.
Each November, the group holds a Festive Fair in Neatishead, and invite two local charities to join them. This year they’ll also be joined by five hand picked, exceptional Norfolk artisans.
Last year due to covid, it was a virtual event, and the artists were delighted to achieve 2,500 website hits which brought many sales. Now, lockdown has led to new designs, new ideas and new inspiration from this talented group, many of who have gone in new directions and added new designs.
This year’s event, to be held on Saturday November 20th, at the Neatishead New Victory Hall, will see the Nancy Oldfield Trust join them. The Trust are based in Neatishead and provide opportunities for disabled and disadvantaged people, families and carers, to enjoy a boating experience under motor, sail or paddle on the Broads. Also joining the Fair will be the Friends of Neatishead School with their spectacular refreshments and cakes, so people visiting the event can enjoy a chat and a break with friends while soaking up the vibrant, artistic atmosphere.
The Two Rivers’ Artists are: James Arthur, photographer. Kit Calladine, printmaker. Fiona Johnson Jewellery- silver smith. Fan Tubbs, photographer. Paul Williams – Woods Worldwide by Williams, artisan woodworker. Jacky Wilton- Dutchables bespoke metalwork and sculpture; and Bob Payne, oil on canvas. They will be joined by: Sue Andrews, basket maker. Trisha Francis, ceramics. Keith Nash, water colours around Norfolk. Neil Gladwell – The Traditional Rope Company; and Ros Wilson, woven tapestry.
Do come along and join the artists and help support their chosen charities on Saturday the 20th of November, at the New Victory Hall, Neatishead NR12 8AD, from 10 to 3.
