Seasons Greetings, and oh what a year!

Well, we’re only a couple of weeks away from the big day. I’ll be cooking dinner for the family which I thoroughly enjoy, but generally having a restful, chilled day.  Whilst maybe quaffing a wine or three, and maybe a bit of Baileys…

It’s been quite an eventful year!

With starting to supply the Royal Air Force Association with some exclusive products.  This led to providing a RIAT 2019 special order.  Developing the range for them has inspired a new range of products for me that incorporate a previous love – screen printing.

This year, I have worked with some new craft groups, new arts organisations as well as revisiting old friends.  I think I have had the busiest year so far for Glass On the Go workshops,  as well as some full classes down at the studio.

I’ve done a few more events this year, including Created By Hand Fair at Nottingham University, Notts Open Studios in the summer, Derby Six Streets Arts Trail. Last week I did a lovely local event at the Factory Kitchen, with Ilkeston Makers Markets.  In October, I got my work into the lovely Ferrers Gallery for their Christmas event, it’s a lovely place to go visit, I do hope I will be going back.

A couple more classes to go, and oh I best start my Christmas shopping soon, eh?  Talking of classes, keep an eye out for a new evening class planned for the new year.   Not just a single class, a series of sessions so you can respond to outcomes and work on longer projects.  I am very excited about the possibilities.

And before I go, I’ll leave a little hint about exhibitions.  Can’t say much yet, but I have something very interesting in the planning with my friend Jackie of Treehuggery….

Merry Christmas everyone
