The Wells in Mosaic team is delighted to have recently received not only a very generous donation from the Somerset Guild of Craftsmen, but also great praise for the project.
When Mosaic artist, Ruth Ames White, was accepted as a member of the Guild, Guild Master, Prue Biddle, was very impressed with her work – especially the skill and ambition shown in the six-meter diameter mosaic depicting the City of Wells and its history.
So impressed that she and her members decided to give their support to the project. As well as a significant financial contribution, the Guild is keen to support Ruth and the team in any way they can in the future.
Prue said: “A big craft project is a rare thing and one in the City where we have our gallery is a real thrill. We are delighted to support the Mosaic and look forward to some of our members being able to visit the studio in the not-too-distant future to see the work in progress.”
Members of the Guild work all over the county but their gallery, in Broad Street in Wells, is where work is exhibited and sold. This re-opened in mid-April and is also where information about arts and crafts around the region, and the Mosaic, can be obtained. www.somersetguild.co.uk
