The project is moving forward in many ways, exterior painting, collecting people and goods to sell, whilst still applying myself to commissioned work.
Aided now by the sterling efforts of Andros who did the stone walling and pointing to the building, and Graham who is chief shutter / door painter and is god up high ladders, the picture hanging system is in place, and the buiding is looking great.
The interior walls now offer a wide range of paintings, prints and other artwork - so, internally, just the floor to be completed.
I'm meeting many lovely crafters who will be displaying work, and this week, setting appointments for them to view the project - I am continually amazed at the range and quality of people's crafts - which promises to create an excellent show,
I can't wait for the ' shop' to become a reality now, as we turn our attention to fitting and filling with goods. Soaps, candles and essential oils will create a heavenly aroma in the old house, with much for visitors to see and ' poke around at'.
So we are working toward second week in April, just prior to the Easter break, although the Kouklia Kids Art school will begin in March -
For so long now we have been applied to the project, but now, we can see a light at the end of the tunnel - the new Kouklia Arts Centre, which we hope will add an attractive feature to the village.
