It’s A busy Time for us all at Eau Brink Studio.
Why is it so busy you may ask? Well first I am getting ready for Textiles in Action on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th of May.
The Norfolk and Norwich Open Studios runs from the 26th May to the 10th June and you can get your booklets from may places but if you want one and cannot find anywhere near you just drop me a line and I will send it out to you.
During this time we have the King’s Lynn Embroiderers guild Time and Tide Exhibition on the 9th and 10th of June at south Wootton Village hall PE30 3LJ. Just opposite the church.
Whats happening with Eau Brink studio then?
Well at long last due to the nice weather I now have my shed up so can clear out all the items we do not use all of the time and make the studio less cluttered. Thank you boys for getting that done.
I am still running our regular workshops during Open Studios. Which are Embroidery Monday from 19.00 till 21.30. Experimental Wednesday from 10 till 4 and Powertex Thursday from 10 till 2. I am also running a taster day on Monday 28th May where you can drop in to have a go at something for just £5.00 per hour. Great if you always wanted to have a go at something but did not want to buy all the equipment in case you did not like it. I will be offering Screen printing, dyeing with Procion or natural dyes, Paper layers, Xpandaprint, and many more mixed media techniques. You can even come and have a go at free motion machine embroidery using my lovely old Bernina. And lastly you can also try your hand at Powertex and make a brooch.
During the Open Studios of course there will still be plenty of cake. So if you just fancy popping by to say hello and enjoy a brew you will be very welcome.
Is there a downside to this week?
Yes there is. I have lost my diary. It is A4 and has my whole year planned into it. It is a Ultimate Diary Planner and I cannot for the life of me find it. I have retraced my movements to the beginning of last week when I know I had it last but it still is missing. I have asked everyone I can think of to look in their bags in case they picked it up by accident and emailed or called everywhere I have been to see if I have left it behind. It is incredible how lost I feel without it.
Still I am sure it will turn up and I hope that I do not miss attending anywhere or forget who is visiting the studio over the next week.
