Working hard in the run-up to Christmas…..Read More
We have a "bejewelled mead" in our front garden at this time of year and when the sun (occasionally) shines, the colours and shapes come to life and I feel excited about the possibility of warmer weather being on the way. It is May Morning tomorrow and I have cheered myself up on this chilly day by enjoying this little glimpse of some Morris Dancers on May Day in Oxford from a couple of years ago:
I love the sound of the sticks and what a joyful and wonderfully daft bunch! (You might see a familiar face dancing there too.)
I have also been feeling inspired by spring in the workshop - particularly as Oxfordshire Artweeks is just around the corner - detailed info below. I have been busy busy busy and still have loads of ideas in mind:
Work in progress!
Artweeks 2018: 10 artists will be exhibiting and demonstrating in 4 venues in the village of Great Coxwell from the Great Barn down to the Church over the last two weekends of May. I will be there for the 3 days of the second weekend (26th-28th May, which includes the second May Bank Holiday) and this year I am excited to be showing in Peter's Barn for the first time. So it would be lovely to see you if you are around and about. Also, during the second weekend the National Trust are putting on a family friendly Arts Festival in and around the Great Barn – so check out what’s going on there too! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/national-trust-great-barn-fest…

SUNDAY 3RD DECEMBER 2017, 10.30 a.m. - 5.30 p.m.
A date to put in your diaries - it's only a month a way! This will be Town & Green's only Christmas Fair so come along to the Reading Room in Great Coxwell - scrummy lunches and teas and loads of nice things to look at - plus Christmas Hamper raffle and children's Lucky Dip.
I have already got some gorgeous jewellery to show plus some vintage bits and bobs too.
But do get in touch in the meantime if you have any Christmas commissions - already a number of things on my list :) - and I am always happy for people to come round to have look at what I have in stock.
Summer commissions I have had a wonderful time making this year....Read More
