Colour in nature walk Friday 20 September, 2 – 4pm
On Friday Jacky will be leading one of her Colour in nature walks as part of the Eastbourne and Lewes walking festival.
Starting at her studio in Glynde, walkers will begin by walking through small woods and out into views across the South Downs up to Mount Caburn.
Along the way we will be paying particular attention to the changing colours, textures and sounds.
You will return through the village, past our local shop and possibly drop in to see Tom the blacksmith at his Forge.
Booking information here
Parking and other details…
There is free parking available in our village car park, by the cricket pitch which is a 5 minute walk away, there is also limited parking directly outside Jacky’s studio by the church.
Glynde has a train station with direct links to Eastbourne, Lewes, Brighton and London Victoria and London Bridge, aproximately 10 minute walk
The route is approximately 2 miles and is quite steep in places so unfortunately it is not suitable for those in a wheelchair or pushchairs
There are no facilities on the walk so do bring your own water with you (there are Public toilets by the cricket pitch)

Last month I completed a project for Firle school working on their 6 values of kindness, respect, working with others, forgiveness, perseverance and aspiration.
I spent a day with the children in their classes where they each interpreted one of the values by linking it to relevant gospel stories. This was through drawing or painting.
Here are a selection of the children’s drawings…
Every single one is going to be made into a prayer flag which will then be hung outside the school.
In addition, I painted my own interpretation of each value which I then presented back to the school in assembly one month later.
The children recognised all the values through the pictures (for which I was very happy and relieved!)
Respect, Jesus heals a leper
Kindness, good samaritan
Forgiveness, prodigal son
Aspiration, Christmas story
Working together, loaves & fishes

In September 2018 Jacky curated another exhibition at the Coach House, Glynde Place
Artists taking part were Jenny Arran, Sarah Colbourne, Bob Dixon, Alexander Johnson, Lucy Newman, Isobal Smith, Guy Stevens and Emily Warren….
We had another fantastic turnout with just over 350 people over the weekend.
Over the weekend I curated and contributed to the Chalkpit exhibition of contemporary art at Glynde Place.
It was a lovely, sunny weekend and we attracted over 300 visitors.
The incredibly talented and varied artists I asked to work alongside me were; Jenny Arran, Sarah Colbourne, Bob Dixon, Alexander Johnson, Lucy Newman, Isobel Smith, Guy Stevens and Emily Warren.
The exhibition pieces…
This weekend, there will be an exhibition of contemporary art at The Coach House, Glynde Place.
Called Chalkpit, it is the first in a series of events that I am putting together as part of my residency in Glynde.
I have asked eight local artists to create pieces of work as a response to the chalkpit (called Balcombe pit) as it is today.
These will be on display for one weekend only, Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th April.
The artists are: Jenny Arran Sarah Colbourne Alexander Johnson Isobel Smith Bob Dixon Lucy Newman Guy Stevens Emily Warren
More information about the exhibition can be found here
Hope you can make it along!
As Artist-in-residence for Glynde, I am working on a project based on the chalkpit at the back of Teddy Street.
Called Balcombe Pit, it was in operation from the 1840s right up until the 1980s.
I became interested in the chalkpit after doing some research at The Keep and coming across the 1881 census for the village…
As you can see, most of the people worked in the chalkpit.
Today, the chalkpit is unused apart from the odd dog walker and kids playing. It is tucked away and you would easily walk straight past the entrance without even knowing it is there.
I decided to make it the central point of my first project as Artist-in-residence.
Over the coming year I will be involving local residents of Glynde and other artists to put together a collection of work and hold a variety of events around Balcombe Pit.
