    Original pictures by Margaret Bacon – inspired by wildlife, the countryside and traditional craftsmanship.  Textured silk scarves. Silk and woven cushions. Working in English hardwoods the sculptures by Roger Bacon are based on the human form. Timber selection is of vital importance in order to display the pattern and grain to its best advantage. A great deal of time is spent preparing the finish in order that the tactile qualities of the work can be appreciated.

    This is an event to raise funds to provide frames for the amazing tapestry panels showing the timeline of the Sutton Hoo Ship, the River Deben,Woodbridge’s early years and the construction and river trials of the replica ship being built in the Longshed. There will eventually be 30 panels covering the whole story. On display on the 25th September will be those panels that are complete and framed, some that are waitng to be framed and some that are still work in progress.The Tapestry is a community project and all of the work is being done by dedicated volunteers. 

    The frame for each panel costs £161, to date we have funding for just seven frames

    Deben Discovery; Paintings and pictures @ The Longshed Gallery

    An exhibition of artwork showing the River Deben in all its glory. The principle exhibit is two, approximately 34 feet long paintings, showing both banks of the river from Woodbridge to Bawdsey by Dr Dorothy Winterbon Wells, who owned a converted boat cabin on stilts known as The Puritan at Felixstowe Ferry. The whole family would holiday there every summer and during the summers of 1966 and 1967 whilst staying at The Puritan she decided to paint in watercolour the River Deben from both banks on two very long scrolls of plain wallpaper. She walked the river banks and used a canoe or small dinghy to access the different locations.

    These remarkable paintings will form the centrepiece of our exhibition and you will be able to walk between the two linear pictures seeing both sides of the river as you pass through. “The Deben Scrolls” have been loaned to WRT by Marion Wells and her brother Ed.

    Also on display will be art work by members of the Woodbridge Art Club, Local Artist Claudia Myatt, Members of Woodbridge Arts Club, also paintings by five other artists and  photographs by members of the Woodbridge Camera club all showing places of interest along the river
