A course looking at the history of farming in Fenland ended yesterday when artwork was finished ready for display in Wisbech and Fenland Museum.
The 11 people on the "Fenland Roots - an image in time" course created their work using watercolour, oils, charcoal and pastels, to hone their artistic skills.
The six-week course has taken place at the museum and began on September 7 with a talk by Bryan Howling about the history of farming in the Fens, using pictures from the Lilian Ream collection.
Following the talk, people on the course have made their pieces ready to go on display in the museum for a few weeks.
