Art in the Park

This weekend sees the amazing Art in the Park event in Leamington Spa. Last time I attended it was a scorching weekend for both weather and visitors. This weekend’s weather is going to be changable but the crowd can still be scorching, so come along.

I will be in my gazebo (site 51) in Mill Gardens, back to back with a neighbour who is a photographer. My daughter is coming to help out and I’m really looking forward to a super weekend.

Local Craft Fairs

I’m delighted to be coming to a couple of venues nearer home in the next two weeks.

Sunday 18th, 10-12.30am at The Cherwell School, Oxford

Friday to Sunday 23rd-25th at The Equestrian Centre, Aston-le-Walls.

I’ll have lots of lovely glass to sell, including glass penguins, ducks, hearts. It’ll also be a great opportunity to book a workshop with me in fused glass, mosaics or lampworking (making glass beads).

Especially for the Equestrian Centre, I have made some glass horseshoes – useless for a horse to wear but great to hang on the wall!. I’ll be taking orders for personalised horseshoes, so you can have your name, your horse’s name or your house name on it.

Hope to see you at one of these fairs.

Hi Ho, it’s off to Cirencester I go

At last, an in-person craft fair this weekend (before covid we didn’t need words like’in-person’!). I am taking my glass to the Living Crafts Event at Cirencester Park, Saturday to Monday this weekend. It looks like it will be a super event with both demonstrations and goodies to buy from real craftspeople. Tickets are on sale at: Handmade British craft, A Bank holiday Cotswolds craft experience. | Living Crafts AND the weather is going to be perfect….not too hot, not too wet, just right!

I will be showing my new creations as well as some well known favourites.

Looking forward to seeing some familiar faces – although you might have to introduce yourselves as masks make recognition really difficult.

Hooray for Summer

A Squadron of Dragonflies

These Dragonflies are one of my latest projects I have been making to be ready for some craft fairs that are now approaching very fast.

They measure 16cm x 14cm and come in a variety of lovely colours. I make nuggets all the time in my kiln so it was lovely to use them on these beauties.

By the way, what is the collective name for dragonflies?

Open for Workshops

I am able to hold workshops again, thank goodness. So, if you’d like to get out and try something new come and have a play with glass or mosaics and create something special.

We have to be Covid safe so : please wear a mask or visor, the studio will be laid out three days before your workshop so all tools will be clean, hand gel is available, drinks will be offered but feel free to bring your own. I also have separate toilet facilities for guests.

I am available most Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and some weekends so please use the Contact button below to make enquiries.

If you’d like to explore the workshops I offer click on the Workshops-Introduction button.

Memory Hearts

Having something to hug when you have lost a loved one or favourite pet, feels so good.

A Memory Heart is a hand-made, unique, beautiful heart shaped glass object, in which the artist places a tiny amount of your loved one’s ashes. Forever you have their memory to love, hold and hug.

The hearts can be made with the ashes visible. or hidden within the centre of the glass. They are approximately 4cm high.

Other options are to order them with a loop and ribbon, loop and necklace or without a loop.

You may require more than one heart, if so, as they are unique, they can be made in similar or different colours:- a range of colours is illustrated in the palette.

Prices:

Without a loop – £20

With loop and ribbon – £25

With loop and necklace – £30

To order: please use the contact button below. I will need a teaspoon of ashes to be posted to me – any unused ashes will be returned to you with your heart(s).

Easter Hugs

I have created some special Easter themed heart hugs to give to those you’d like to spend Easter with but still can’t.  The ‘chocolate and cream’ one is even made with a glass colour called ‘milk chocolate’, and I have yellow ones. Of course I have all the other colours too.

They come with a hug message card which can be personalised before being sent directly to your recipient.

Price: £6.

Please click the contact button below to order. Please let me know which colour (s) you’d like and any extra message you’d like on the card(s) (at least a ‘love from’ message).

I take payment either by Paypal or Bank transfer.

Pocket Hugs Video

I thought you might be interested to see how I make the Pocket Hug hearts so here is my video.

Here are some I made earlier (to use a well known phrase!). They are £6 each (incl p&p Mainland UK and NI).

If you’d like one (or two) please use the contact button below. Please add your email address carefully as I can’t reply if it’s not correct.

When you contact me I would like to know what colour(s) you are interested in, what extra message you would like included on the Pocket Hug card (love from….etc), and whether you would like to pay by Paypal or bank transfer.

Thank you so much for looking at my pages.
