I'm getting ready for the Brother Open Event at Craft Arena this weekend. Just have to thread up 15 machines now - luckily I have Rachel to help!


Do come along and see what we are doing; there will be some very special offers and you can even have a go yourself!

Somerset Studio and Butterflies

Somerset Studio July/August 2012
Seems like Tuesday is Magazine day; the latest Somerset Studio was waiting for me this morning. There are some lovely colour themes this time, but then I'm a sucker for summer colours! There are some intriguing ideas in this issue including collagraphy, using milk cartons as a base for work, using clock and watch parts for modelling, polymer clay, making your own stencils and masks and creating with paperclay as well as artist profiles, news and inspiration. 
Swallowtail wing (part)
I've finished my butterfly wing. Here is a taster, but you will have to wait until our Minerva Group exhibition in August to see the whole thing. I have a few ideas for my other two pieces but will really need to crack on to get them finished!
