After years of dreaming of having a shop of my own at the Craft Centre, I would now like to invite you to the launch of Studio 20a, my new studio & shop at Manchester Craft & Design Centre!

I hope you can join me in celebrating the start of my new exciting venture!

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 a busy (Manchester) bee stocking up the shop at the Craft Centre over the last couple of months but also making new treats for over on lovedazzle. Sunday is also the return of the lovely Little Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in Altrincham. And I’m also taking part in POP UP Gallery Shop at The Square Shopping Centre in Sale. This is part of the Waterside Arts Centre’s 10th Year anniversary celebrations and features artists and makers from Manchester from various disciplines. You can see where else to see and buy my work on my website (currently (slowly) being updated!).
