As exhibitors we loved meeting people who appreciated our art, talking techniques and opening our studios, homes and gardens for everyone to enjoy. We hope this has given you an insight into how many creative people live and work in Caversham. We are also pleased to share that we raised £187 for the King’s Meadow Baths campaign.
