My Journey with a Sketchbook, Camera and Needle with Polly Woolstone

On Monday 16 July 2018, we were pleased to welcome Polly Woolstone, who gave us a talk on her travels with Sketchbook, Camera and Needle.

Following Art College where she studied Illustration and Graphics, Polly became an Art teacher for 35 years and only started travelling after her retirement.

Her first journey was to Ireland, riding a bike and raising money for charity. This was closely followed by bike rides from Bangkok to Saigon, India, Burma and then Bengal to the Arabian Sea.

All these places have influenced Polly’s work and she brought many samples for us to see and touch.

Her sketchbooks in particular were a delight and many of us will be looking at our own work with more inspiration.

Thank you Polly for a wonderful talk and good luck on your next bike trip, wherever it takes you.
