Pillaton Arts and Crafts Exhibition
PAAC’s THIRD EXHIBITION was well attended on Saturday April 21st and Sunday April 22nd. There was a large variety of art and craft exhibited by some very talented Pillatonians.
The Quilting Group displayed some beautiful pieces of patchwork and quilts. Local artists had a lovely display of paintings and drawings. The number of crafts on show was extensive from upcycled furniture to jewellery, knitting, glasswork, cushions and beadwork. Photography was well represented this time with monitor displays and stills. St Mellion School exhibited for the first time with an impressive show of models of tin mines, Egyptian headwear and many other decorative pieces.
One of the highlights was a display showing the progress made on the large planned mosaic commemorating the end of WW1 and the ensuing years. This will be installed on the exterior wall of the Village Hall shed by November of this year.
Refreshments including delicious savouries and homemade cakes were provided and served by a group of volunteers from PAAC.
The weather was kind to us and allowed an outdoor table top sale to run on Saturday.
