NORTH EAST OPEN STUDIOS
9 – 17 September
I will be exhibiting and delivering workshops at Hallgreen Castle, Inverbervie during NEOS. More details to follow. In meantime see NEOS website for more details http://www.northeastopenstudios.co.uk/neos-2017/
Sam Baxter – sambaxterart – has very kindly sent me these photographs of my work from the above event. Thanks for all the hard work you put into this event Sam!
Big huge thanks to all of you in the Fun A Day Dundee team for all the hard work you put into this event. It was an absolute pleasure to take part.
Here are a few more photographs of the fun I had. Enjoy!
Well, I’m a crochet tutor! So the first thing I saw when I looked at this shed snakeskin was a beautiful lacy crochet pattern. Don’t know quite how it would turn out or what I might use it for. Maybe give this a try out sometime and see if it can be made into a working pattern. Probably would need a more delicate name than Boa’s Belly Stitch though!
The exhibition has begun!! Mavericks Art Craft – which includes my sweet self – have a full exhibition of work for sale at Halllgreen Castle, Inverbervie until 21 September. All part of North East Open Studios (NEOS) Do come along and see!
“A Castle in the Air” – A magnificent dream of the middle ages as they might have been but never were
Hi Everybody. This year has started quiet. I have been happily working away at new pieces of crochet work.
Meantime, my trusty computer friend had been quietly languishing in the Pooter Hospital 😦 awaiting a delicate operation “upgrading the hard drive”
I did not realise how much I depend on it till it isn’t here! I am without the technology to upload new photographs from my camera until at least next week. In the meantime here is a photograph of an older piece of work “Connections” whilst on display at Hallgreen Castle.
This work was inspired by my favourite tree, a dead coppiced elm in the Nature Reserve at Kinnordy. “Dead wood” is such an important item in a natural woodland, providing food, homes and shelter for many living things, and without it so much is lost from the natural environment. There is just so much life around this “dead” tree.
It’s here! Today was good, tomorrow could be even better! Five of Kirriemuir’s artists have been working hard. So please drop in and visit us all – Jonathan Mitchell, Jim Farrer, Vicki Hepburn, Ellie Fiddes and Maureen Crosbie.
hobbycraft – they’re having a 25% off everything discount day on Saturday 27th July 2013 . For more info and a voucher visit their website http://www.hobbycraft.co.uk/pages/funday or their facebook page.
I have just spent two weeks recharging my batteries and getting inspired down in the Borders amongst some beautiful flowers and greenery. Now have the basis for a new series of work, good timing with NEOS just round the corner. Watch this space!!
