Over the upcoming, just over a week, I will be preparing for the Little Northern Contemporary Craft Fair … the list of exhibitors is now on-line, plenty of reasons to visit! Hope you can come and support some great makers …
It’s the return of Forming Words! An exhibition which originated with Flow gallery in February 2013 before touring to Manchester Craft + Design Centre later that year. It is continuing by touring to Clotworthy House in Antrim from 10 March to 10 May and then on to Roe Valley Arts + Cultural Centre in Limavady (June to August TBC).
I’ve been working on this necklace ready for the show and wanted to show its process.
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!).
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.
I’m excited to be taking part in ‘What is Jewellery’?
”What is Jewellery’? An exhibition of jewellery made from unorthodox materials from a selection of national and international jewellery artists, as part of Manchester Free For Arts Festival. Curated by Eve Redmond’
It opens 3rd until 12th Ocotber, which coincides with the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair, and will be held in Space2 at Manchester Craft & Design Centre, right next door to our studio/shop (Studio 3), as it happens!
