Feels very much the end of season now the last Bank Holiday before Christmas has been and gone! But then there have been a few unexpected pleasures…here’s one!
Claire Harrison running and inspiring a watercolour workshop at the Ming Gift and Art Gallery in Hove last Sunday which was a free event. Claire is a well known practicing artist, but doesn’t hold back when she’s teaching and will share everything she knows. Laid back and easy going!
I first met Claire at Evolutoon a few years ago but now she spends most of her time with her own workshop.
The Ming is a tiny gallery but with an attractive range of really unusual art and craft work. They have run a range of workshops this summer with one or two more still to come including a collage workshop for adults with Jules F Foreman. I’ve seen some of her amazing collages online and now she is about to show some of her art work at Ming.
You can discover more at 27 Montefiore Road in Hove.
Found a really busy and enterprising cafe/restaurant a few doors down, Harrisons of Hove (same name but nothing to do with Claire). It was absolutely teeming on Sunday for breakfast, but lunch and dinner menus looked pretty good. Such friendly staff and I only popped in for a coffee! Aim to return there for a meal soon.
