100 banners in black, red and white on cotton and hessian form an installation at Ely Cathedral throughout February. Some are painted, others appliquéd, printed or embroidered. The banners hang from a four sided bamboo constructed platform on 3 levels in an airy cascade. Of the 17 artists who are members of Ouse Life Cambridgeshire, WNAA artist Ann Froshaug painted 7 of the 100 banners. There are also pictures around the walls of the beautiful side chapel. The range of work is gruelling and moving and lovely, well worth a visit.
So, on a fine February morning, we set off from her village of Bar sur Loup, in the mountains above Nice, towards the village of St. Paul de Vence. This is a fortified medieval village surrounded by a high wall, and its little streets probably contain more artists per metre than anywhere I have been.
It was an exhilarating and exciting experience, as a new arrival to Norfolk in 2008, to be leading screen painting and printing workshops in St Nicholas Chapel. There was no water but an enormous table with enough space to accommodate 20 people and large screens and squeegees. I was very surprised by being in a church environment for the first time as a practising artist – gradually it dawned on me that coming to Norfolk was going to church! Everything seemed to be happening in churches all over the county.
