Foundry Artists are a group of Worcestershire artists who attend weekly workshops with artist Hilary Baker in her studio at Bewdley Museum. Exploring a wide variety of materials and techniques, they produce paintings, sculptures, printmaking, drawings, life studies, and much more. Hilary’s workshops are informative and challenging where people can develop their own creative journey in a friendly and supportive atmosphere.
Our annual Foundry Artist Exhibition
will run from
Saturday 3rd – Saturday 31st August 2019,
10.30am – 4pm open daily,
in Hilary’s historic studio above the Brass Foundry in Bewdley Museum. Entry to the Museum and the Exhibition is free and is open from 10.30am until 4pm daily. Artists will be there to talk about their work, which will be for sale throughout the exhibition, whilst demonstrating techniques such as printmaking and watercolour painting.
Since the huge success of last year’s exhibition in numbers of sales and visitors, Foundry Artists have been busy developing new creative and artistic opportunities. Life classes will be held once a month throughout 2019, alongside this we’ll also be operating after school classes and workshops for Young Foundry Artists, where young people have the opportunity to achieve an Arts Award certificate. 10% of all sales from last year’s exhibition enabled the trialling of our Art & Chips project aimed at improving emotional wellbeing and mental health which will continue this year.
