. . . where I think, design, experiment, make, display, meet, discuss, re-home . . .
It’s been awhile, it’s been so very busy!
I am so pleased to announce that I now have my own Studio & Shop at Manchester Craft & Design Centre. When I first visited Manchester 4 years ago I visited the Craft Centre and have been dreaming of having my own place to work and sell my jewellery and collages.
I have now been here in Manchester for 3 1/2 years, I can’t believe it’s been that long, but at the same time a very short time to find a lovely flat, my very own shop, good friends, and my soul mate!
We are open to visit from Monday to Saturday, from 10am to 5.30pm, then Sunday’s too in December.
I will be having a special launch very soon, once I have painted some more and made some work benches I will set a date and announce it here!
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!
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!
