Art in the High Street

Moss Bros 1Today I helped to make a display of artwork in an empty shop front on the High Street in Banbury. Of course, it would be lovely to see all of the shops operating but if one has to be empty it’s great that the District Council allow people to use the space. About a dozen of us turned up with window cleaning equipment, hammers and nails along with our artwork to help to make the fantastic display. It was a very lively morning and the results are certainly highly visible. Let’s hope that passers-by are encouraged to come and see more works of art.

My glass is on the floor along with leaflets about where to find me (Longridge, Spring Lane, Little Bourton, Banbury, OX17 1RB) and when I am open (13th – 15th May, 11am – 6pm). I also displayed a leaflet about the courses I run, enabling others to experience glass making.

As far as preparations for next week go, I’ve cleaned the Studio, bought some flowering plants to decorate the garden, made the lemon drizzle cake and made the direction signs to help visitors find me. Roll on the 13th.

Hi My name is Jane and I live in North Oxfordshire, UK. I started making greetings cards and jewellery, progressed to working with stained glass, played with a microwave kiln for small fused glass items and then went all the way with a studio and kiln. I then explored lampworking and enjoy playing with hot glass too.. I have also been a knitter and crochet(ter?) since childhood. I enjoy playing with colour - the brighter the better in my opinion. I attend craft fairs each year in the local area as my glass is attractive face to face. I also run workshops in my garden studio and love to share my skills with others.
