Due to the pandemic, all 2020 events have been scrapped.
Listed below are some to watch out for......
Lumini Glass group exhibition of all new works from Sophie Sheehan, Pippa Davismoon, Jennifer Brown, Charlotte Morrison, Maria Beddoes and Jenny Sharp. The works are inspired by the Barbican centre, the architecture and its culture.
Multiple interpretations of the Barbican come to life as the six artists explore the meaning of such an iconic place. It is a place of history – where lives are played out and culture converge. It is a place of experimentation and new ideas. A place which has encouraged the artists to unleash their creativity.
Kiln formed glass and ceramics, photography and painting, text and textiles collide to provide us with multiple interpretations of the Barbican and what it means to us.
Barbican Library, Level 2, Barbican Centre, Silk Street,
London EC2 8DS. (possibly May 2021 tbc)
Jennys work concentrated on one image of the tower block balconies, the weather staining and textures. She has interpreted this in both Bullseye Glass and textiles. The images shown are work in progress.

Catford Arts Trail
Last weekend September
First weekend October.
This year would have seen the 5th Catford Arts Trail. A free, open house event covering SE6 area.
This event has grown in popularity and has become a must do event.
It is with great disappointment that Jenny will not be hosting as she was due to have even more artists than last year. Along with Virginia Balisteria (ceramics), Luke Merryweather (print), Marite de Villar (textiles/jewellery) she had invited a group from ArtHub including Adrian Morris Thomas, Kirsti Tebbutt and Warwick.
For the past few years Jenny has been trading at Greenwich Market. The market is well renowned, set within the iconic and historic maritime area of Greenwich. She was intending to return to Greenwich this year however this has now been put on hold.
Arthub Open Studios
In May 2019 our old ground floor studios were closed and we moved across the car park, to the first floor of Building 28. There are now some 150 studios housing over 200 artists of very many differing disciplines, over the two floors.
Held for the first time over the weekend of 14/15th September, many studios were open, with demonstrations of techniques and activities along with goods for sale. There were also refreshments available. It is envisaged that this will become a regular, annual event with all studios being open.
Arthub studios are next to the Thames Barrier, at Building 28, Westminster Industrial Estate,
Warspite Road, Woolwich SE18 5TF.
