The Natural World an exhibition showing at Taurus Crafts Garden room is on show to the public daily from 8th October until 23rd October 2011.

Jackie Cox –artist and tutor of the group says:

The theme of The Natural World this was prompted by the fact that so many of the group were choosing animal and  floral themes. I felt their work was so good that it deserved a wider audience than the one we have at our local village hall.   The group has been going for many years and used to be run by the Royal Forest of Dean College. In 2003 I took over the teaching and when the college no longer put the class on we decided to form a group and carry on.

It’s a great exhibition, showing that practice does make perfect and how living in a rural haven like the Forest of Dean can provide plenty of inspiration.
