Last Friday night was the private view for the Marshwood Arts Awards at Bridport Arts Centre. The place was packed out and humming when we arrived, so we couldn’t really get a good look at the large amount of work on show. I would definitely recommend a second look because what we could see was pretty impressive, with entrants from all over the world. Kate Malone and John Makepeace were the judges for the Applied Arts section so I was delighted to get Highly Commended from them for a dish and necklace. So encouraging to have a show of this calibre very local and free. The show is on until December 7th.
