At the heart of Hanover

It’s Festival Time

The Hanover Centre is an Artists Open House on the Hanover Art Trail on Sundays in May. We are hosting an exhibition of work by our Art for Women group, there is a craft market with changing stalls each week, and a Fairtrade café. To top it all, we’re running workshops where you can try out new skills each Sunday too (with generous discounts for Hanover residents).

Ancient Times / Ancient People

Gavrinis entranceThis year the work of the Hanover Centre’s Women and Art group – Gaia’s Gals – has been inspired by the wonderful 6,000 year old artefacts, tombs, and megaliths of the Carnac region of Brittany. This is an exhibition not to miss, where you will see 21st century versions of ancient works, and where you will find a moment to pause and reflect on the pace of life today.

There will also be an opportunity for visitors to participate in an art activity themselves, and talk to the artists.

Look out for the signs to the Small Meeting Room, at the very top of the back stairs.

Café and craft markets

In the main hall local arts and craftspeople will be bringing unique hand-made items for you to browse and buy.  People working in a range of new and recycled materials including willow, fabric, silver, and card have signed up, so there should be something for everyone – including your cat! Pop in each week to see what’s new.

And while you enjoy a little something from our famous Fairtrade café, you’re welcome to share our needles and yarn and try your hand at a bit of knitting or crochet. Experienced knitters willing to donate some leftovers from their stash and/or a bit of time are particularly welcome.

Following on from the successful children’s events during last year’s Art Trail,  we’re offering activities for all ages this year that re-use and upgrade the ordinary into something unique and beautiful. Places are limited so please pre-book via the Centre office. Charges cover expert tuition, equipment and materials. Participants from our “area of benefit” qualify for a generous discount on the full price.
