Some pictures from the latest workshops...

Both Workshops were fantastic and in the 4 hours each day we made some amazing things. Don't have much to show for the Silver Workshop as I forgot to take pictures but there is one image that shows the work of just one person for the day. I didn't forget to take pictures of the Felt Workshop though - again some lovely things done by our participants.

We got Felt by Bridget today - brilliant!

Bridget O'Connell came and taught a Felt making Workshop here today. In just 4 hours we made some lovely things and it was a great basic introduction to this lovely craft. Will post some images tomorrow when I've processed them.

Silver I made at the workshop on Monday

These are the things I made in the 4 hour taster session in Art Clay Silver on Monday.
Really impressed with how much we all made and can't wait till we have another, more advanced session. Fantastic stuff! Hope you agree.

Art Clay Silver is the most amazing stuff!

Had a fabulous Taster Workshop on Monday - Art Clay Silver.
Really accommodating and knowledgeable tutor in Elaine Martin. Everybody had a fantastic time and we all made far more than I was expecting. Yes, I joined in because it really is the most incredible stuff and I just couldn't help myself. The weather was sunny, the people were lovely and the work was just amazing. Definitely want to do some more myself. Will post some pics very soon.
We have a Felt Making Taster Workshop today so will take some pics of that and post them all together.
Just made some bread and Madeleines (which went down really well on Monday so I made some more) - Scrummy! Just had one before I sealed them in a tin for later.

New directions?

Chris and I had a fantastic day out yesterday at Broad House Hotel Raspberry Foolery. Fantastic music all day, beautiful weather, great burgers and Pimms in lovely surroundings. We didn't sell much but met some lovely people on other stalls who were complimentary about my new glass pieces and our lovely Burlingham Traveller bags. Thinking about some new directions as a consequence and the fabulous day out together really focused our minds on the need to enjoy life rather than constantly slaving to earn a pittance. So - new directions, new thoughts and a new push in fewer diverse directions.

Have just updated the website to include a more detailed descriptions of what we could offer in the way of wedding stationery: see

And the new glass Sushi dishes and spoon rests we made on Friday are lovely. Will make more of these - very exciting.

Event next Sunday at Broad House Hotel

Just realised that we are going to the Broad House Hotel Raspberry Foolery event next Sunday and Chris is off to the Wroxham Barns Farmers Market on Saturday. Very busy making some items for both these events. We'll have honey, herb jellies, herbs, the Burlingham Traveller and hopefully some glass!
Received a deposit cheque this morning for a place on the September Kiln Formed Glass Workshop - places filling up nicely.
