I was asked to join in with the Droitwich Arts Network Advent Calendar and it seemed like a great idea. 24 pieces of art are to be displayed throughout Droitwich in various places, like shop windows or the church.
A number sheet will be attached to the front, and the work itself will be hidden. On the day of December corresponding to the number, the work of art will be revealed and displayed until after Christmas.
I was pleased because the place I had been allocated was a shop called Jewels, which happens to be run by a very dear friend of mine; Laurie Terry.
This made it feel even more special, to be producing something for her window display, because her shop is full of stunning gifts and items of jewellery. Every time I go in to buy a gift for someone I end up buying things for myself...there are just too many cool and kooky things inside!
Jewels can be found at 33 High Street Droitwich, WR9 8EJ: you can see my advent calendar box in the window right now, but it won't be open until the 6th...and if you don't live anywhere near Droitwich, well don't worry because there are some pictures below!
The Droitwich Arts Network exists to advocate and champion the arts and crafts in Droitwich Spa and to act as a collective voice for the arts.
