Around Morecambe Bay (2019)
The drawing groups project for 2019 has been to produce studies around Morecambe Bay.Throughout the summer we have been visiting various sites around the bay and producing drawings of the things we have seen. We made the decision to produce our work in the form of a leporello. A leporello is an accordion-pleat style book and can have as many as 26 individual drawings/paintings within it.
The photographs are examples of the groups work and in some cases showing a number of “pages” within an individual leporello.
THE U3A TEA-TOWEL - ULVERSTON BUILDINGS
The group had earlier produced a number of individual drawings of historical Ulverston buildings. The picture left shows group members with the results of their work. The image was subsequently used as a design for a tea-towel which has been sold to boost Furness U3A funds.
