It's my favourite day of the week....Workbench Wednesday!! Although I do spend time during the rest of the week, I always set aside Wednesday so I can spend ALL DAY at the bench.
At the moment I'm working on a couple of new collections to take to the British Craft Trade Show in April next year. I am so excited as it'll be the first trade event I've ever done and I guess like most "creatives", the designing and making is the easy part, speaking to gallery and boutique owners and marketing is the hard/scary part! I do love talking to people, especially about my work, so if you're an owner of said galleries/boutiques, please come and say Hi, I'd love to speak to you! I'll be in the Newcomers Gallery, stand 65.
I'm also preparing for the C word.....Christmas!!! If you would like a piece commissioned in time for Christmas, please get in touch as soon as you can. As each piece is made by hand, they can take anywhere from 7-14 days to complete, sometimes longer as Birmingham Assay Office, where my hallmarking is done, gets very busy in the run-up to the festive season.
