The morning presenter, 10am to 1pm is Joan Blease MPAGB, FBPE, EFIAL/b, photographer & digital Artist. Joan has an artist’s eye and has loved drawing and painting for as long as she can remember. In 2007 she bought her first SLR camera and a copy of photoshop, then set about learning them both. She quickly became known for blurring the boundaries of where painting and photography meet. She has gained numerous top awards in exhibitions and Competitions both in the UK and internationally. Her workshops sell out quickly and her on-line tutorials are very popular as they encourage people to push their own personal boundaries. Joan is a Permajet ambassador & presenter. She will show both prints & PDI and her talk will include a break for refreshments. . Website here.

The afternoon presenter from 2pm to 4pm is Les Loosemore ARPS-DPAGB-AWPF with a new presentation.Les is well known in the local region for his panels of work.

We hope you will decide to join us for the day.

Invitation to Enter The Pair of Aces

Dear Club Secretary,

On behalf of the WPF, I would like to invite your Club to take part in the Pair of Aces Competitions which will be held on Saturday 17th February 2018. The event will be held at the Regency Hall in Saundersfoot. (Post code and how to get there details to follow). There are 2 competitions, namely the  Ace of Clubs (for PDI’s) and Ace of Prints. The winners and runners up in each section will be invited to represent the WPF at the PAGB Championships in Warwick and Blackburn respectively later in 2018. I have not appointed judges for the Competition yet, and will let you know who they are later.  The rules are slightly different this year. The aim is bring them more in line with the PAGB rules.

The full rules can be seen here, and will be presented to you again early in December. 

This was a very successful competition when it was held in Trealaw in February this year, and produced teams to go forward to the national events. There was a large attendance on the day, and the large number of WPF members who were there reported a very enjoyable competition. I hope that you and your Club members will join in this Competition in 2018.

If you wish to discuss any of this with me please contact martinnagle1@hotmail.com or call 07772 657296, or speak to any WPF Executive member.

Best wishes,

Martin Nagle CELO WPF
