Craft :

The first meeting of the Craft Group was a great success with nine members attending which included one U3A member who was visiting the venue for lunch and decided to stay on!  Some members did "their own thing" whilst others started to learn how to crochet.  In November one of the group will be giving a demonstration on "card making" for those who have expressed an interest in learning card making.  We meet at Haven House coffee shop, Quay Street, Truro on the second and fourth Mondays from 2.00 pm to 4.00 pm and look forward to seeing new members.

Art - Falmouth:

Meeting every Monday at the Athenaeum Club, Kimberley Park, Falmouth TR11 3QL between 1:30 - 3:30pm.

The Falmouth Art Group goes from strength to strength.  At the last count there were twenty members, most of whom attend weekly, apart from the school holidays.  In fact, we could say we are full for the time being and will start a ‘waiting list’.
            It is a huge privilege to be allowed to meet in the house that was built as Charles Napier Hemy’s family home, which is now the Athenaeum Club in Falmouth.  The light is amazing.
            There are some extremely talented artists in the group and it is rewarding to notice how others improve and grow in confidence.  Last year we held an exhibition in the Methodist Church foyer and hope to do so again this year.
            Above all, we have fun!

Art History:

The group meets at 10.45am on the first Thursday of the month at the Conservative Club in Truro. At October’s meeting Malcolm Clark gave a very interesting talk about the sculptures of Amedeo Modigliani.
Next month’s meeting will be on Thursday November 2nd and we will be showing a film about Rembrandt’s “The Night Watch”.





Due to the fact that Tony Herring, who has been doing a great job leading this group (as well several others), is standing down, the group is now being run by a working committee. If anyone has any suggestions for future speakers, exhibitions or, perhaps someone would like to speak themselves about a favourite artist or painting, we would be delighted to hear from you.
Email Malcolm Clark
