I have made progress at my new studio / shop here at the craft centre. All the painting, bench building, cabinet hanging, shelf making and days of painting everything in sight are coming to a close! I’ve just hung drawers of jewellery in the window today and the last big job is to hang my sign, but I am very happy to be open and it’s all going nicely!
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 ….
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
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!
Our open evening at AWOL studios is this Thursday … I will have lots of jewellery, collages and bunting to have a look at and many of the other studios will be open too, its always a fun night! Now, I’m off to sort out the mess in my studio after the genius idea to re-arrange, everything!
Some new pieces in the studio at the moment . . .
