Here we are again in the Liskerrett Community Centre, scene of two memorable events. The Travelogue Kernow workshop in 2013 linked up to Liskeard’s Vital Spark festival and the result was a mad, full on printmaking extravaganza, then last year for Picturing the Mines we made in a day, a volcanic explosion of a painting [see image above]; measuring 3m, on black paper, with a little help from artist Matt Bennington, Falmouth students and members of the public.

Thanks once again to Jenny Foster who runs the Liskerrett Community Centre with such energy and good humour for her warm welcome, all her help today and on our previous visits.

We had a visit from Mayor Christina Whitty, which was very nice:

Christina showed great interest in all the exhibits, especially the Travelogue Kernow print.  

Other distinguished visitors today included Liskeard Councillor Sue Pike and Launceston Councillor Val Budgen-Cawsey. Louis Taylor who did so much to facilitate Travelogue Kernow as part of Liskeard’s 2013 Vital Spark Festival dropped in; great to see her again and chat to her about the commissions and to hear about ‘Dark Skies’ which she is curating at the moment.
