What's on and coming up...

Here's what's happening in our creative space, the Sail Loft, the NaviStitch shop, and on Manningtree High Street over the coming weeks...

In the Sail Loft...

Another amazing two-week Sail Loft Gallery exhibition ends on Saturday so, if you've not made it yet, come along and see Susan Keeble and Loueen Morrison and their bright and beautiful work. Painting, printing, ceramics - these two incredible creatives have no end to their talents. We're here til 4 today and then 10-4 tomorrow and Saturday; we look forward to seeing you.

From 30th April to 4th May we're delighted to welcome Mae Kandoo to the Sail Loft Gallery.

In her own words: "(my exhibition) 'Once upon a

time' features an eclectic mix of home and

personal accessories. Each item has it's own story because it has been handmade using reclaimed or vintage fabrics that were once something else! Trading as Mae Kandoo, Designer Maker Vikki's

work reflects her passion for eco-design. Featured

in this eclectic collection are bags made from

Thames Barge Sail Cloth, bespoke deck chairs and other quirky items that are beautifully hand made."

And then...

Following on, we have four artists, all friends of NaviStitch, working together to create an amazing show:

🎨 Alison Adcock Art brings 'Two Stops Short of Dagenham' from 7th May to 8th June, along with:

🎨 Anne Plummer Painter, showing her Maritime and Mono Prints;

🎨 Tina Bullen's work is entitled 'Extracts from Hands and Wings', both with us from 7th May to 25th May.

🎨 Finally, from 28th May to 8th June, we have a solo show from Amanda Clement-Robinson

So much amazing art, and then it's June...

In other news...

As if you needed yet another reason to visit Manningtree: tomorrow marks the first date in a monthly calendar of makers' markets right in the Market Square:

and then some 'save the dates'...

Until next time, I wish you calm waters and plain sailing
