‘Hunted’

I love wild cats and wanted to bring this beautiful leopard onto reclaimed wood to take to for the forthcoming Surrey Artists Open Studios.

These reclaimed wood panels are excellent space savers. Work brilliantly in alcoves or in between door frames.

Only two weeks to go! Very excited to be in the presence of 13 other local artists in a beautiful Surrey setting.

9-11 and 16-18 June- Birtley Estate near Bramley. Just outside of Guildford.

I'm back at Birtley Woodland Art Space running my Willow Craft Workshops but have also run a few workshops from my home garden for a change, just small groups but it's nice to work from home and to get back out in the garden! We have had some great groups over the past couple of weeks, I've shared some photos below.

We have lots more events coming up in the next few weeks and months ahead, take a look at our calendar for all the Experiences we offer!

Last call for any artists and makers wanting to apply to join a diverse and exciting group for open studios.

Dates: 9th,10th,11th and 16th,17th,18th June. 11-5 pm

There are many perks for displaying and working together !!

For me it's great to hang out with other creatives who are on the same page as me.

We make more connections, friendships and support each other with setting up displaying, pricing and selling.

We get to hang out, make stuff and learn from each other plus we all bring along our friends, contacts who see everyone's work and together we create a buzz and get alot more visitors than if you do it on your own and a different audience.

We have bbq's, drinks and some people camp and make a weekend of it.

I love it !! I feel a sense of an artists community forming and developing into great and exciting things.

If this speaks to you and you haven't yet signed up.

Last chance to book next weeks Willow Fawn Workshop, we still have a couple of spaces available!

If it’s very quiet in the woods around our outdoor studio you may spot a Rabbit, Deer or even a Badger, however, you are more likely to see and hear the wide variety of birds in the trees and the abundance of Geese and Ducks on the lake! These surroundings have inspired me to begin our sculpture journey here and invite you to join our next workshop to learn how to weave your very own baby Deer (Fawn) on Thursday 8th September!

This is a full-day workshop with a delicious charcuterie lunch included!
