Blind Commission for Georges Retirement 134x219cmLast Saturday (October 26) a tea party took place at George Woodcraft’s house to unveil his retirement present from the Trust. The present was a roller blind to hide the utility area in his house.

The blind measured about 7ft by 4ft and was printed with an artwork by John Vincent a Fenners Fellow. John said it was a complex picture to produce and was the largest artwork he had ever made. Everyone who attended the tea party  was  very complimentary about the art work and George said he was delighted with it and very grateful to the Trust for enabling him to fulfil  an ambition he had had for some years to commission a Digswell Fellow to produce a blind. Comments from people not from DAT who have seen the blind range from ‘Brilliant’ to ‘outstanding’!

Anyone who would like to see it please give George a ring on 01707 326109 to make the arrangement.
