I really have enjoyed this great summer. I am fortunate to be able to open up the bi fold doors of my studio and keep cool. It feels great to let the garden and my workspace merge into one, especially when I have students there too. We have enjoyed lunches on the lawn and have to drag ourselves back in to the task in hand!
I have been teaching in some lovely locations too. A residential course in deepest Dorset and “Etched in Frost” in sunny Brighton in July. Also several courses at home in Oswestry and the most recent in Harwich at The Old Bank Studios where “Flowers and Foliage” kept everyone busy and happy for 2 days.
I have managed a bit of down time too. A few days in the Lakes was a highlight and a few trips to London. I felt I had to take advantage of my artwork being in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition so went 4 times!! It has been so lovely to share the experience with friends and family.
My next adventure is my annual trip to Australia. I will be teaching in Melbourne and in Sydney, where I will also give a lecture and have an exhibition of new embroideries. It will be at Gallery76 which is in the Embroiderers Guild Headquarters NSW. More details of rimes and dates on my courses page. I will also be teaching again in Hastings NZ as part of my trip.
Here is a sneak preview of some of my new work.
