into the wood

I will be showing at this rather lovely pop up shop, Into The Woods which will be open over the month of May during the Brighton Festival.
It opens on Saturday the 7th, with weekend opening hours being 11am - 6pm and Monday to Friday 9am - 1pm. As well as having some wonderful work they will be serving light refreshments so come and have a look and enjoy something nice to eat too.
Mia Underwood, aka Woodfolk , is the lady behind it all and a jack of all trades she is. I am the proud owner of one of her fantastic swan scarf and my boy has a wolf scarf and he has been know to be found howling at the moon whilst wearing it.

Busy, busy...

Here's a photo of some necklaces that are about to be soldered which i made during March, a marathon month of making jewellery day and night in my rural workshop in Wales. I did managed to get one afternoon off with a trip to A&E to have a saw blade removed from my left index finger.
We have now moved back to the West country of England and it's time to get printing.
All of my shows for the year are about to start with my first in Brighton for the May Festival.
I am starting a 10 week printing course next week so watch this space, and come and visit the shows to see my new screen print and jewellery.
I also received news last week that i will be exhibiting at Origin in London this September which is rather exciting and Luster in Nottingham during November as well as Made by Hand, held in Newport Wales over December so there's 2011 set out.

Paper things

<span class= <span class= Here is a taster of some of the other 25 works by different maker that my 'Dearest Nones' screen print (seen at the top of this posting) will be exhibited with at the 'First Anniversary - Paper' exhibition running from the 5th of May - 30th of July.

Jenniefer Collier, the talented paper artist will be holding the event to celebrate the first year of her having opened Unit Twelve, a gallery and workshop space where she also runs courses from in Tixall, Stafford.

The paper spoons you see above, (i am a sucker for utensils) are by Magie Hollingwork and the stitched picture post card is by the brilliant Julie Arkell who doesn't waste her time in the world of computing, too busy with her mad world of little creatures and such. Though you can start to see more of her finery at Loop, a rather lovely wool shop where Julie runs workshops and sells her work too.
