Narrative Remains explores the relationships between stories, poems, prose or quotes and the chosenmakers’ work. The exhibition shows the imagination engendered by words and stories through the creation of contemporary craft. Work on show includes installations, photography, print, collage, enamel, ceramics and textiles. In these works the narrative emerges in the spaces between the pieces as well as between  the viewer and the work, opening up more possibilities for extending the storytelling. Exhibitors: Sonja Andrew, Sue Brown, Clare Goddard, Tina Hill, Effie Jessop, Iris Milward, Jitka Palmer, Donna Rumble-Smith, Trudie Timlin Brown, Alex Valentine and Aine Venables.  WORKSHOP Calligraphy  with Celia Lister Saturday 8 March 10am - 4pm Phoenix Hall,BoveyTracey   An introduction to italiccalligraphy, working from its traditional roots, covering theprinciples of good letterformsusing an edged pen andintroducing the tools andequipment used in letteringart.

The conventional book became a household object after  the invention of printing, and has only recently beenrivalled by the computer screen and electronic text. This exhibition sets out to explore the transition of books through a variety of formats, fromphotographs to sculptures, installations and jewellery. This exhibition will examine the broad spectrum of  work currently being created by artists and designers who are using books to deconstruct and describe their qualities, both aesthetically and conceptually.  All of the artists in the exhibition share an interest inmemory, language and narrative. They use books as a way of filtering their ideas.The exhibition demonstrates how diverse the Book Artmovement is in the UK by showcasing British-based talent, and illustrating the notions and narratives behind the making. Alongside the why, the exhibition will examine the process,material and nature of production.  WORKSHOP Reconfiguring the Book  with Maddy Pethick Saturday 31 May 10am - 4pm Phoenix Hall, Bovey Tracey Deconstruct and reconstruct old booksinto something new.
