But this time it’s about my ‘hobby’, which loosely comes under the heading ‘embroidery’. Loosely!
I love how inspiration can strike when you least expect it. Outside my workshop window is a bush… not being very green fingered (to say the least) I know it as an ornamental quince.
Yet again I have abandoned my blog. What a bad blogger I am, but I’m back. It was a very busy autumn for me, as it always is in the run up to the christmas period, where orders go from a trickle to a torrent.
After almost 20 years as a designer in children's publishing a short silversmithing course in 2006 prompted a change of direction.
The following year I enrolled on a part-time jewellery course, and found a local studio where I could make and sell my work.
In 2009, together with five other crafts people we found a shop space to rent on our busy local high street, the gloucester road, called Fig. We are open tuesday - saturday, 9.30am - 5pm (except August).
