THE Bix Six and friends are a group of local artists and craftsmen that have been hosting their annual Christmas show in the last weekend of November for a decade now.
The show is very popular in the area and has some loyal visitors, including the odd celebrity. The artists cover many different disciplines exhibiting a wide range of work to visitors.
This year, in addition to our usual Bix Six gang — woodcarver John Parry, photographer Tracy Florence, feltmaker Carol Crowdy, ceramist Debbie Page, woodturner Alistair Phillips, jeweller Matthew Hitch — we welcome Sheila Ferris’s vibrant iPad drawings, Therese Wicks’ freehand glasswork, and the return of Tara Kennedy’s delicate sewing work and Mary Phelan’s child-inspired drawings and paintings.
The Bix Six is also famous for its handmade cakes and teas — the proceeds of which will be donated to the Ways and Means Trust this year.
The Bix Six and friends’ Christmas show takes place on the weekend of November 26 and 27 from 10am to 5pm each day at Bix village hall.
The mixture of arts, crafts, teas and cakes at the beautiful Bix Common setting has created a cosy, relaxed atmosphere making the Bix Six’s shows a popular local event.
