Workshop for Teachers

Last term I ran a workshop for high school art teachers. We spent the day making moulds, casting bowls and experimenting with different decorating techniques.
Here are few photos that one of the participants emailed me, taken on her iphone.

They are mostly of me talking and people listening!

Oh, here's one of some work being done! Don't worry everyone worked very hard. I can't wait to see photos of the bowls their students make....

Mother's Day Studio Open

Twice a year I open my Eucalypt Homewares studio to the public for a sale on current pieces as well as some real bargains on seconds and discontinued lines.

One is held just before Christmas and the other the week before Mother's Day. Last Sunday was the annual pre Mother's Day sale. This year I invited some other local designers to join me resulting in a lovely market like atmosphere in my back garden.

Shoppers could wonder through the garden looking a tables set up with work from Eucalypt Homewares, Robin Wells Jewellery, Little Babushka and Old Grey House.

It was a perfect sunny day with people arriving at leisure through out the afternoon. There was a nice mix of loyal supporters and new enthusiasts all enjoying an outing perusing local artist's wares. We even had a lovely local lady organise a luncheon for her friends with a stroll down to my studio after, a special thanks to Mia!

Talking of thanks, much appreciation to my friend, Kim and my husband, David for their help on the day!
I'm looking forward to the next Open Day in December....
