Valentine Commission

We are delighted to have awarded our first ever Derbyshire Open Arts commission.  The commission is for a Derbyshire ‘Valentine token’ to be mailed to our press contacts.  We are hoping that this will serve to announce the launch of our 2017 event and raise awareness among press and media contacts.  The commissions were awarded to Val Copestake (padded, hanging hearts) Frances Daunt (felted heart pictures) and Sheila Conchie (heart shaped fabric brooches).  Congratulations to those three artists.
