arts and crafts...
Thank you to everyone who came to Westbury Arts Centre! Another lovely event and I really enjoyed meeting and talking to everyone who came to my studio.
The printmaking evening classes that commence on 01 February 2022 are
now fully booked. How exciting! I can't wait to show others the joys of lino-printing!
20:20 Hot Bed Press Print Exchange 2021

I've submitted 25 prints; all 20x20cm in size, to participate in this 'print-exchange' event.
I'm very much looking forward to seeing all the wonderfully diverse and inspirational prints from other members and groups within the printmaking community.
Heritage Open Days - 11 & 12 September 2021
What a lovely weekend! It was really great to meet and talk to visitors.
A heartfelt thank you to everyone who came. You help to make these events a great success; and what's more, you inspire us all at Westbury Arts Centre to keep putting on
creative community and heritage events.
You make it happen.
The Art of Hand-Pulled Printmaking
Recent lino-reduction works by Vonnie Raw
24 July - 01 August 2021 at Westbury Arts Centre
What can I say? I was thrilled to meet and talk to all the visitors who came to see my exhibition. Thank you for your time, your support and your feedback. I really enjoyed seeing friends (and colleagues!) I haven't seen in a very long time, meeting other artists and printmakers, and meeting new people I hadn't met before.
Many of my prints found new homes too, and for that I'm eternally grateful.
Wolverton Works Windows Exhibition
12 - 13 September 2020
Thank you to everyone who attended the Heritage Open Day weekend at Westbury Arts Centre, whether you went on the walk lead by The Parks Trust, or came along to see the exhibitions. It was really lovely to meet and talk to people.
The completed series of my reduction linocut print studies of the old Wolverton Works windows was on display in the Legge Gallery. Also on display were exhibitions of paintings by Lance Fennell and works on the subject of 'Hidden Nature' by the Artists Collective @ Westbury
COVID: We implemented a 'one-way' safe social-distancing walk-way system to ensure the health and safety of visitors. People also wore their masks.
Bucks Art Weeks 2020
I participated in Bucks Art Weeks (BAW). What was normally an open-studio event had to take place virtually in 2020. Hundreds of artists exhibited their work on the BAW website; and posted images of their work reflecting different themes each day on Instagram. The event was an absolute inspiration despite the challenging circumstances; and I was very glad to ‘meet’ and follow so many other artists on social media.
Thank you to all the organisers and to everyone who took part. Bring on BAW 2021 !!
Brontë p.200 Exhibition, Woodend Gallery, Scarborough
11 January to 08 February 2020
My Mother (V W Selburn) and I both submitted a page for the book commemorating 200 years since the birth of Anne Brontë. 200 artists were sent a page from Anne Brontë's novel, 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall', and were asked to illustrate their interpretation of the page. All of the illustrations were published in a book. For more information, go to: https://bronteblog.blogspot.com/2020/01/anne-bronte-p200-art-exhibition.html.
You can purchase the book from Lindsey Tyson's website here.
Westbury Arts Centre Winter Fayre
24 November 2019 from 10.00am to 4.00pm
What an amazing day! It was so lovely to see so many people visiting the centre and to talk to people who came into my studio. Thank you all for your time and enthusiasm. I'm always really glad to meet and talk to other creative people and to encourage those who need a tiny little nudge to find their creative side. If you fancy a go at lino-printmaking, please do get in touch with me via the 'contact' page on this website. I'm happy to do introductory sessions for up to two people in my studio; and I hope to organise group sessions in the new year.
