It’s been a wonderful week so far, the sheep were sheared at Heligan this weekend & I got to use some of the wool almost straight away, I’m also looking into getting some of it processed so that it has real value in the future. I’ve worked hard & got a good amont of stuff done (despite the stress neck… Sigh) but I ‘m going to take a turn from making now for the rest of the week to prepare my stuff for The Big Skill- the rural skills festival I’m heading off to at the weekend. I hope to see some of you there 🙂
Ok, for those of you who don’t know.. This week has been really exciting for me, I have been given the massive compliment of being given my very own workshop space at The Lost Gardens of Heligan, those of you who know me know how much I love it there & it already counts for a large part of my working inspiration so to be able to surround myself by the gardens & actually work there is frankly a dream come true!! The plan for the space is that I can use it as a working studio, I can sell my stuff (which can all go through the lovely shop tills) & I can also run workshops from there (joy of joys!) so basically from now on if you want to do a workshop just send me an email & we can do it! One-one or as a group, anything is possible. There are also all sorts of other opportunities…. Tomorrow they are getting the long wool sheep sheard & we can all use the wool in my workshop to make a rug using a latch hook, a nice thing to do together over a cup of tea from the cafe.
p.s. My plan is now to send a blog post once a week on a Wednesday (yes I know it’s already Thursday) to keep you all up to date… Nudge me if I haven’t done it xx
