MK Calling Prize Draw Winner, Nancy Pullen

Nancy Pullen, an IT Services Manager from Clophill, Bedfordshire, was the lucky winner of the MK Calling exhibition Free Prize Draw  last week.  


Nancy,who redeemed her prize of a place on a Japanese Woodblock Printmaking Workshop at Artworks MK on Saturday said:  

 

"I hadn't been to MK Gallery before, but I heard about the MK Calling exhibition and visited early in the summer.  I loved it so much that I returned the day before it closed to take another look at the exhibits and bring along some friends. All the staff there were lovely;  very friendly and open, and welcoming.  The gallery also provided a detailed catalogue which was great, offering background information on each of the participants and their work, making the whole experience very much more rewarding. I'll definitely be visiting MK Gallery again - I'm looking forward to the Peter Dreher exhibition later this month, and hoping to see the pre-performance piece by the English National Ballet in October."

Nancy added that she was really pleased to win the workshop prize and described the workshop leader, artist  Laura Boswell as knowledgeable, friendly and helpful, and said that hearing about her time spent learning in Japan gave an extra cultural dimension to the workshop.  During her day she learnt woodblock cutting techniques and then cut her own design, found out about some of the subtleties of watercolour printing, and made several prints to take home.  Summarising her experience she said: "Altogether I've had a fascinating day, with some really lovely people.  It's intense because you learn a lot, and I'm tired, but I'm very grateful to MK Gallery and Artworks MK - thank you - and I'm going to book a place on Laura's Lino Prints workshop in December. ”
