Back to Normal


Summer seems to be disappearing fast, I think we may have just had the last sunny weekend as today in York it is looking decidedly dull. Having just completed my last planned art fair for the time being it feels to me a lot like starting a new term today - the last few months have been busy busy with open studios, galleries to deliver to, Art in the Pen and finally Saltaire Maker's Fair last weekend. On the one hand it's nice to get back to 'normal', on the other I know that I now don't have an excuse not to catch up with my bookkeeping...

Saltaire Maker's Fair

I had a fun day at the 'fair on Saturday, chatting to visitors and meeting some lovely fellow makers such as printmakers James Green and Sarah Harris. The fair took place in the absolutely gorgeous Victoria Hall, just up the hill from Salt's Mill, and was packed with exciting and unusual art and craft items. I was lucky enough to get a chance to have a wonder round the fair and bought a few early Christmas pressies (trying to be extra organised this year) from Finest Imaginary, and fell in love with the work of Butterscotch and Beesting, in particular this lovely Circus Lampshade. All in all it was a long but good day.

So now I've got to devote some time to catching up with the less exciting paperwork, and also start preparing for my forthcoming Papercutting Workshop at ArtisOn. Having a had a few months off from tutoring I'm really looking forward to getting back into it again. There are still a few places left on my course on Saturday the 22nd of September, so if you fancy trying your hand at papercutting check out the course details here.

Have a good week!
