Today marks the fourth week in the studio & gallery. Each day has seen progress whether it has been styling the price tags, adding artists information, arranging to stock 'The Crack' listings magazine or as in todays chores, adding the latest batch of felted mobiles and garlands ......... and yes the flying pigs are back, more colourful than ever.
By the far the biggest job of the last week has been getting our series of Christmas workshops ready, as all of the others were sold out. 'Handmade Christmas' offers two needle felting workshops, one to make your own needle felted Robin, the other to make some needle felted baubles. If you don't fancy felting we have a very creative 'Christmas All Wrapped Up' workshop with retail magician Frances, so if you'd like to give your gift wrapping a serious attack of flair and enjoy a glass of mulled wine and lots of ideas then this one could be for you. If you require something a little more cerebral and fancy a bit of creative writing, local writer Elaine Cusack has two workshops, one to indulge the travel writing, the other is based on food ...... ah now we have your attention ....... yes being some recipes along and you can start your own very special recipe book or maybe blog?
Full details of all workshops can be found here, where you will find links to book online, or of course if you are local you can drop in and book in person.

The studio is open on Sundays and we like to have a very relaxed atmosphere, so we offer free tea and coffee between 10am and 12 noon for Social Sundays, so you can browse at your own pace or have a try at whatever is being made...... it's one of the joys of being more than a shop and having creativity and well being as one of our core ethics.
Next week I shall tell you about the artists who work with us and the lovely items they produce, but if you're in the area why not drop in and see for yourself?
