SEPTEMBER 2020 was to have seen the celebration of the WOODLANDERS 30th Anniversary of their first Exhibition. Sadly, along with many other art and other events this has been cancelled for safety's sake due to the virus.

The Woodlanders are now planning their special celebration of their 30th for next year, September 11th until 26th 2021, to be held in Burley at the Village Hall. BH24 4EH.

This will give all our members an extra year for painting, potting, wood carving and jewellery creating, ready to put on an extra special show of our work.

We all wish you well and look forward to seeing old and new friends in September 2021.

Good Health to All, Suzan Houching, on behalf of the Woodlanders.

Brainchild of Diana Hawkins and Suzan Houching, THE WOODLANDERS is a group of semi-professional, professional and amateur artists, woodcarvers and potters, based at Burley, near Ringwood, in Hampshire's spectacular New Forest. The artists are truly 'locals', living either in or around the forest area.

THE WOODLANDERS was originally formed thirty years ago, when seven Forest artists got together to put on an exhibition sharing expenses. Many other local artists have taken part since and this year the group consists of eleven painters, two potters, woodcarvers, turners, and jewellery.

What makes THE WOODLANDERS' exhibitions special is the busy programme of demonstrations by the artists throughout the exhibition period, when they are only too pleased to talk about their work. People flock to THE WOODLANDERS as they know they can relax, have a chat and enjoy the ambience for which the group is renowned over the 'best cup of tea in the village'. In fact many visitors spend all day with them!
