LOOKING forward...

The IOW Open Studios Yearbooks have just been delivered 
and suddenly the event in mid-July 
seems SO much closer…

  This year I’m exhibiting at Shalfleet Village Hall (18th—20th July) 
and also at Quarr Abbey (24th—29th July) so it’s going to be a 
very busy couple of weeks. The new yearbook has all the details 
and can be downloaded here...

I’m planning to have lots of new work on show - new scarf and wrap designs, 
new bag & vessels shapes and embellished felt work 
(like the bag featured in ‘Embellish’ magazine)

I shall be at Quarr Abbey for a week (24th—29th July) and will be re-creating
 a mini ‘pop-up’ studio in a corner of the Gallery.
 In the spirit of Open Studios I shall be making felt each day and
 have plenty of samples and work in progress, as well as a display of new designs,
so there’ll be lots to see...

At the moment I’m looking for new premises to hold my regular workshops here 
on the island - somewhere that offers plenty of space to work. 
Until then workshops will continue at West Wight Alpacas with new summer dates 
coming up soon. There are also plans to return to Spring Farm Alpacas in Sussex 
and again dates will be posted as soon as things are arranged…
Distance is never a problem!

Looking ahead to the autumn...
 I’m holding a very exciting workshop at  a new venue - The Seaview Hotel.
We will begin the day with a walk along the shoreline, beachcombing
 and seeking inspiration for felting pebble weights and scarves, 
and there’s more details here...

So another very busy summer ahead, 
with lots of events and workshops planned...

Watch this space!
