Forming Words at Flow ends on 17th May, but fear not, it will then tour to Manchester Craft & Design Centre, opening on 7 July and running until 9 November, and while you’re visiting you can come and see me and my ever growing collection of jewellery & collages in lovely Studio 6! I’m very pleased to say that Flow have asked me to continue with them after the show and so I will be working on a new group for them over the next few weeks.

Brooches for The Scottish Gallery . . .

Wednesday 10 April 2013 § 1 Comment

I’m really enjoying my new life at the Craft Centre and have been very productive as a result. I’ve made a few new pieces to go to The Scottish Gallery, in Edinburgh. Here are a couple of the brooches that will arrive later this week. I’ve also been working on additions to my collections at the Craft Centre and on Made by Hand Online, more to follow on those later. Discovered today that Made by Hand have just added my work to their banner on the homepage, very lovely!

Jewellery + collages at Studio 6

Friday 22 March 2013 § 6 Comments

I’ve had a wonderful first full week at Studio 6 at the Manchester Craft & Design Centre, lots of very lovely people to meet, and have lunch with at the Oak cafe which is well worth the visit alone, and I’ve now set up a collection of jewellery and collages to come and have a look at.  Marie Canning was also in this week to set up an exhibition of her lovely work which will run for a couple of months. So come and visit!

New studio to visit . . .

Thursday 14 March 2013 § 1 Comment

Craft_Centre_72I am very excited to tell you I have now moved to a new workspace at Studio 6 at Manchester Craft and Design Centre. Situated in the Northern Quarter just a few minutes from Piccadilly Gardens in the city centre.

My workspace is within the established studio of Tracey Birchwood and I will also be sharing with the lovely Charlotte Verity. We are open to the public Monday to Saturday from 10am to 5.30pm and I will be in most days.

I’ve been busy this week moving in and setting up my space ready to make some new work. I will soon be displaying a collection of jewellery and collages. And I am sure I will be blogging all about it along the way!

I hope you can visit!
