Julia Khawaja has moved into Unit 4 - now known as Gallery7 - at Weyhill Fairground - the last unit available for letting by Penton Grafton Parish Council.
"The Parish Council have done well to let all the units so quickly; and to establish a nucleus of artists at the Fairground that is gaining a momentum of its own. The combination of artists studios, training courses and retail activity gives the fairground a unique atmosphere - reinforced by the tenants supporting and working with each other."
Julia is an artist and photographer, originally from Cricklade College, who has studied and taught a wide range of art subjects. Her specialty has been the human figure.
At her workshop, she plans to run workshops in various media including photography, and to combine studies with local history and archaeology.
