JUNE 15TH & 16TH - Spittal Gala weekend

MAY 31ST to 3RD JUNE - Miniature Worlds Exhibition

A touring exhibition of work by twelve very different artists around a common theme of miniature worlds is coming to Spittal at the end of May.  This is part of the Highlights Rural Touring Scheme’s ninth annual tour of the best of contemporary craft.
From fabulous jewellery and tiny ceramic sculptures to the smallest shoes and intricate historic costumes – all on a scale that makes them especially intriguing and that encourages visitors to look more closely for the unexpected – Miniature Worlds will include more than 300 different pieces, some of them for sale to visitors.
This year’s tour receives funding from the Arts Council England, Queen’s Hall Arts (Hexham), ONE North East, Eden District Council Community Fund, South Lakes District and Cumbria and Durham County Councils as well as the Garfield Weston Foundation, the Hadrian Trust, the Holehird Trust and a Cumbrian winery, High Cup Wines from near Appleby-in-Westmorland.
Miniature Worlds will be on display around the north of England during May and June and will be in the BURC (formerly St Paul’s), Main Street, Spittal, Berwick-upon-Tweed, TD15 1QY, from 31st May to 3rd June.  It will be open from 11am to 5pm each day, except Sunday when it opens at 12noon.  The exhibition will also include work by children from Berwick Academy who have been working with Rose Ashley in recent weeks.  
Spittal Improvement Trust are hosting the exhibition as the promoter for the tour’s visit to Spittal and they have expressed their delight at being chosen as the only venue in north Northumberland.  “This is the first time that we’ve hosted the craft tour.  Rose Ashley has been working with local children and the work that they’ve created is amazing.  We’re expecting the Highlights Contemporary Craft Tour to be one of our own summer highlights.”
