Reflecting on Past Projects

I have been so busy with our Pop Up Shop and other recent projects that I have not had time to make any new work.

Now that things are beginning to calm down I am having time to start considering what I want to work on next. I have lots of ideas, lots of started and never finished experiments and and numerous half explored techniques. But how to decide where to start?

As I still do not have time to begin a major new line of work yet I have decided to kick start my preparations by looking back on some of my favourite samples and finished pieces.

This knitted pool combined with beads and stones was inspired by a visit to High Force (a magnificent waterfall in County Durham).

ANB @ Pop Up Dunstable

After weeks of hard work our beautiful Pop Up Shop (ANB @ Pop Up Dunstable, 3 Ashton Square, Dunstable, Bedfordshire, LU6 3SN) is up and running. I am so delighted with how wonderful it looks and love all the different handmade gifts and original art we have in stock.

It is amazing to have such a lovely showcase for some of the many talented local Bedfordshire artists and inspiring to watch visitors discovering their own favourites within the store. The feedback from these customers and the stories they are telling us about their own work and love of art is a huge reward in itself. Making sales in such a hard economic climate, and the many promises to return (when they have more time or money) and to bring their friends, are very exciting.

Today is Market Day and we have free parking in Dunstable so it looks like it will be a busy day. Plus we will be running our Leaf Collage Workshop (just £1  go) so we are looking forward to welcoming lots of new customers.
