Artist Kate Thomas has produced photograms for an exhibition to run alongside snowdrop weekends at Kelmarsh Hall.

Back by popular demand, the weekends will also feature an exhibition from a group of former University of Northampton students who graduated in 2010 and a charity called Fine Cell Work, which trains prisoners to sew cushions and quilts.

The ex-student group, Edge Arts, is made up of eight artists including county illustrator Emma Carpendale.

She said: “We were looking for somewhere more creative and interesting as a showcase for our work and Kelmarsh Hall seemed the ideal place.”

The snowdrop weekends will take place from 11am until 3pm on February 11, 12, 18 and 19. Admission is £3.

The events are a chance for visitors to take in the award-winning Kelmarsh gardens and Oak Walk filled with winter snowdrops.

From 6pm to 9pm on Friday, February 10, there will a preview exhibition and selling evening from Edge Arts and Fine Cell Work.

Admission is free but places must be booked by calling 01604 686543.
