Worcestershire Arts Trail 2012

The Grove

I went out on the Worcestershire Arts Trail on Friday – to install a little show of mine at Blue Ginger – but also to explore some of the venues:

… the Trail venues are open until the end of Bank Holiday Monday, grab a map here.

Press form practice …

I got some time today to have a play with the fly press and work out some ideas for a new range that I want to take to the British Craft Trade Fair in April.

It’s nice to have development time but I’m also aware of my self imposed, end of March deadline to get all the work done! Here’s what I was thinking on today:

… more tomorrow, as well as an interesting Arts Trail meeting in Worcester …

Worcestershire Arts Trail

I packed up my studio last Thursday and headed on down to the edge of Herefordshire for the first Worcestershire Arts Trail:

I set up at Blue Ginger Gallery and spent the weekend demonstrating my working processes to the Trail’s visitors. I was nice to be out on location, being away from the workshop gave me a little extra freedom and the shock of being somewhere different brought out some new ideas:

Which will be moving towards finished things soon …

I stayed out in the fresh air for the first 3 days of the Trail before being driven inside by some truly British Bank Holiday rain on Monday. Which just goes to show that you can’t plan everything. Still, the sun came out in the end (thankfully, just in time to pack up) and I bid farewell to Blue Ginger – and their adorable kune kune’s:

Arts Trail Entries

Well, the closing date for entries for the first Worcestershire Arts Trail was today and what a response! I know there are a few still winging their way through the post (thanks to articles in the local papers last week) but here’s the stack I worked my way through today:

it’s going to be a great event, and I’m so excited about helping to start something new like this. Roll on May!
