Gallery Petite

Monster exhibition

7 Year old Katie Kemp is taking us to another world this summer with her Moshi Monsters Art Exhibition at Gallery Petite, Word of Mouth on Valley Road. ‘I love to draw’ says Katie of Mytholm Steeps, Hebden Bridge, ‘so I thought I’d exhibit my pictures & raise funds for a good cause. The Gallery is free to enter, but entrants are encouraged to ‘donate to show they appreciate’ with all money going to the HB Saints under 8’s girls team, who Katie plays for. The exhibition will be held until the end of September so come along & see for yourself.

Established in December 2009, Word of Mouth is not only a shop boasting an Aladin’s Cave of craft supplies including wool, haberdashery, beads, & fabric, guaranteed to inspire & delight all those creative individuals out there, it’s become much, much more. Offering a wide range of Art & Craft Workshops, a clothing alterations & sewing machine repairs service, it now has the area’s first Children’s Art Gallery.

‘Gallery Petite’ is a community space, free to use by local Children’s Organisations, Schools & Nursery’s to fundraise through the Children’s Artwork. It has been set up to encourage children to be creative & raise funds by selling their Artwork to other visiting children for a donation. Stubbings Infant School has held the initial exhibition & has raised around £40.00 so far. The Gallery is booked right up until the end of the year by HB Woodcraft Folk (November), Steiner School (December) & Katie Kemp (for Stubbings School exhibiting from 1st October).
