Hurrah for the Totterdown Arts Trail – what an amazing weekend! I think I am still going to be feeling exhausted from it in about two months time, but it was well worth all the effort and we had such a brilliant time!!
It was really cold all weekend, but the weather wasn’t nearly as hideous as it was last year (which to be fair, isn’t that difficult). There were loads of people about all weekend and Tim and I have made an approximate guess of about 1000 visitors coming through our front door over the course of the weekend – phew!
We worked really hard to get the house ready and it was particularly lovely as Tim decided to show some of his photography this time too, so we were a proper husband and wife team. 🙂
Here’s the pics of my room:
I was so pleased with how it all looked in the end – it was well worth all the effort of taking all the furniture out. You can just see in this last picture that Jet had her own little section too. She spent half the time stood next to it pointing at it to show everyone – CUTE!! You can also just about see on here that I had a new range of jewellery for sale this year. This was displayed in a collection of glass jars up on the shelves. I was so pleased with how it all came out and it was all well received by the visitors. More about that later though…
A million thanks go out from us to all the people who contributed to this year’s arts trail and of course to all the lovely people who came round to have a look at what we’ve been up to. It really was such a fantastic weekend and I’m looking forward to next year’s already!
Och-aye! Just a quick note for those of a northern disposition…
I will have work at the Edinburgh Arts Fair this weekend from the 18th-21st November on the Cube Gallery stand – A12.
(everyone else is welcome round my gaff for the arts trail – WHOOP!)
Whoa there! – is it that time of year again already??
Our house will be open next weekend for the Totterdown Arts Trail (v. exciting!) – would be great if you can make it along!
Just a quick note to say that I will be exhibiting work at the Affordable Arts Fair in Amsterdam this weekend – from the 28th-31st October – Get a load of me!
More info on the show can be found here.
Here is a design I did recently for cycle cap to go into the Thinking Caps exhibition at the Howies store in Bristol:
The hat was made up with a tweed fabric panel across the top and a tweed visor.
Here are a couple of pics of me wearing the finished article 🙂 :
And here are a couple of pics from the show:
More photos can be found on the Howies flickr photostream here.
I will be exhibiting at the art fair in NEW YOIK later on this month from the 30th September until the 3rd October. Sadly I will not be able to go there to bask in the glory of it all, but I may be having a celebratory cwoffee or two at home during the proceedings…
More info on the show here.
I have been working on some bigger pieces for this event and I have worked out some new framing with the help of my lovely new framer 🙂 Really pleased with the results!
This piece measures 90cm square – so it’s quite a bit bigger than any of the stuff I have done before…
(only had time to take a pic with my phone before everything was shipped off to The States!)
Fingers crossed they are a success across the pond!
