The colourful creations of Letchworth Settlement students are being celebrated over the next 10 days during a special exhibition at the Community Museum in the town centre.
With examples of work from arts and crafts students and from those involved in creative writing, the exhibition showcases pieces that have been created over the course of the past 12 months.
Presented in partnership with the Heritage Foundation, ‘Settlement Showcase’ will feature pieces from every stage of the student journey, from the beginning to examples of more complex work undertaken by experienced learners in a range of classes including fine art, collage, water colour and sewing, together with examples of short stories and poems.
Based at the Community Museum situated in The Arcade shopping precinct in Letchworth town centre, the exhibition promises to give visitors a real insight into what can be achieved when studying at The Settlement.
It will run across two weekends: Thursday July 5 until Saturday July 7 and then again from Thursday July 12 until Saturday July 14, 11am until 4pm each day. Admission is free.
Settlement Manager Sonia Weston explained: “The standard of work produced by our students is quite inspiring and the exhibition is a positive way to show what can be achieved. Many of our students will start with very little experience and develop their skills and confidence within our supportive learning environment.
The work has been selected to illustrate the diversity of our courses and I want to thank all those contributors and tutors who have dedicated their time and talent to getting ready for the show.”
