. . . for new pieces being created for my studio / shop along the way to Christmas #inmycabinets 

My Studio and Shop home . . .

I’ve been working and selling at Studio 3 (#Studio3 !) for over ten months now and feeling very snug and at home. My collection is evolving the benefit of having the work around me to refer to, it’s quite an experience after many years of working on relatively small collections at a time then sending them straight off to a venue, that you often can’t visit! It makes a huge difference to developing pieces.

October Showcase at Jam Eton

I’ve been working away on my next exhibition which will take place at Jam Eton, for the whole of this October. I’ve been wanting to have work with them since I graduated and strangely it’s taken this long, so it’s pretty exciting! The collection features lots of old found papers, postcards, stamps and maps but also vintage rulers and hand-cut mother-of-pearl. These items here are amongst those in the exhibition. Hopefully some of you are around the Windsor area and can visit the show and the lovely gallery!

Rings exhibition . . .

Rings exhibition at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

9 June to 24 August 2014

If you have never visit the gorgeous Yorkshire Sculpture Park, go! It’s a beautiful day out. I’ve been working on a new collection of rings, something I haven’t really made for many years, so this was a great opportunity to play around with some new ideas. They will be available at Studio 3 when I eventually have time to make more, but for now they are in this exhibition amongst many other contemporary jewellery makers . . .

Studio 3 launch this Saturday!

As I am new to the lovely Linzi Ramsden’s Studio 3, and we have had a nice fresh re-furb, we will be launching Studio 3 this Saturday ….

036021

We will also be opening the first of an exciting series of 3-month ‘invited makers’ exhibitions at the studio. The first will show collections by Julie Dooley and Ellen Claesson. They both graduated from Cardiff Metropolitan School of Art and Design in 2013. They are also part of the annual exhibition at the Craft Centre, Future Makers, showcasing recent graduates. Each studio at the Craft Centre has selected a maker of their choice from the graduate shows across the UK. The main exhibition space at the Craft Centre, will show work by graduate Elizabeth Jane Winstanley and it all opens this Saturday! I am so excited to be in this great new studio/shop and hope you can visit me in our celebrations! 

It would be lovely if you can join us on ….

on Saturday 15th March

from 2pm to 5pm

at Studio 3 / Manchester Craft & Design Centre

Here’s what I’ve been up to …

Between Christmas and New Year I have been moving studio, again, but this time still within the craft centre, to a bigger work and display space in studio 3, sharing with Linzi Ramsden ceramics. A very exciting new space with a great presence in the craft centre. We have been busy painting and setting up and are nearly ready for our launch mid March, a Saturday yet to be confirmed! We will also be curating a display of invited makers of various disciplines in three month exhibitions. Details will follow!
