  1. Hi everyone 

    Now Halloween & bonfire night are over its time to think of Christmas shopping.

    Whether you love it or hate it most of us have to get some done and Craft fairs are the ideal place to find some beautiful & unusual presents. This year there seems to be more than ever. I am only participating in one, along with my friends in Touchmark Guild. On our stand we'll be selling our hand crafted jewellery. 5 designers with different styles. Hope to see you there !Us at barley wood version 1

  2. So now the Sale is over and the shop is closed so the next hurdle will be CHRISTMAS ! yes the C word.

    I know lots of my friends have started shopping and planning for the great event that throws most of us into a panic or a frenzy. I have started thinking about my Christmas cards. Last year I got a lino cutting kit so I thought I'd make my own cards this year but after slipping and cutting off my penguins flipper I decided I needed help. So today I attended a lino cutting course near Warminster at the delightful studio of Olivia Clifton Bligh. A fabulous day, I learnt so much and came home with a fairly decent first print.

    It was good to do something completly different and all absorbing and I might be able to use those skills to print on aluminium which could push my work in a new direction.  I recommend her course you can find out more at http://www.oliviacliftonbligh.com/workshops.html
