"Folkestone is an Art School" is a Folkestone Triennial Project for more details see our earlier blog and http://www.folkestonetriennial.org.uk/
Our Studio at 56/58 The Old High Street was open on Saturday 10-12 2-5 and Sunday 11-1, 3-5.
Several people volunteered to take part in our upcoming projects and David sold two of his pictures. That famed if elusively emerging artist Lazlo Walnut slipped in to show his latest film.
All in all a very successful weekend. Even the landlord turned up!
We are very pleased to add The Tory Family Foundation to our list of funders for this project

We are so very sad to hear of the death of Sarah Wheeler founder of the Mental Fight Club and the Dragon Café Southwark.
Sarah was a contributor to and co-producer of issue 3 of our journal Transitions which we launched at the Dragon Café.
May the Dragon continue to breathe fire in her honour
So many have so much to thank her for.
We shall be showing films and playing audio clips as part of our Heritage Lottery Funded project "Between the storms" exploring the heritage of Folkestone as a cross-channel port. The films vary in length between 3 and 10 minutes. The whole showing will be under an hour long and will be looped throughout the hours of opening. The team will be on hand to discuss and explain the project.
We shall also be leading guided walks around the harbour including the pier recently refurbished for leisure activities by the Folkestone Harbour Company. The walk will last between one hour and 90 minutes. Our venue where the walk will start and end is at the centre of the old town harbour district. The distance covered is slightly less than a mile. Event not suitable for children under the age of 8.
The guided walk must be booked
