This coming weekend is all about Textiles East Fair at Swavesey College. For Eau Brink Studio that means a few items I have not had to sell before and am excited to present them to you in this blog. Aslo I will have some of my Lincoln Longwool for you which I have carded and in some cases blended with Alpaca.
I am hopeful that I will be able to get a delivery from Clover Products in time but as I have been out of action last week I cannot guarantee I can get them.
The plan is to give you access to items that we all like to use in the studio. Things like the chalk pens (Clover have new refillable ones). And a few more of their fabulous gadgets too.
If I cannot get them in time just leave me your email address on the day and I will add you to the emailing list so that you get to know what comes in before anyone else. Also you can let me know if you would like me to try and get items for you but I will only be using the suppliers that I already buy from for the workshops. Alternatively pop over to my website and sign up for the news letter at https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/ scroll down the home page and you will find a subscribe link to complete and you will be kept informed a little quicker than leaving it to the fair.
Cas Holmes Books
The most exciting thing I will have is the fabulous Cas Holmes Books. I have been sent a limited supply at the moment as they are being reprinted in some cases.
Here are a few teaser pictures and yes I will have copies for you to look through before you buy. The rest will be wrapped to keep them pristine for you.
I love the feel and the look of this book. the pages give you snippets and insights into Cas and Anne’s world and work. there are discussions on collaboration, exercised and tips for you to follow. And a way to use mark making to create your own art.
Another book by Cas that gives the reader a great deal of information on how Cas gathers her inspiration and using it. Cas also discusses other artists in her book. It is interesting to see many textile artists who trained in fine art first.
Here we have the last book Stitch Stories. It is beautiful, colourful and full of information to help you with your textile journey.
The bad news is that I at this time only have four copies of one book, three of another and only one of another.However, I am not going to tell you which is which. I will also not be able to reserve copies as they are so limited at this time.
I am looking forward to seeing friends old and new at the fair over the two days. there are still spaces available on the Two day course with Cas Holmes due to a cancellation, to learn more just follow this link so you can see what we will be getting up to. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/two-days-with-cas-holmes/
Cas will also be with us for a third day for her one day course making postcards. This link will explain more. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/cas-holmes-postcards/
On a more personal note, we are looking forward to April for another reason. Our lovely Lincoln Longwool girls will be delivering their lambs during that month. An anxious but exciting time for everyone.
When you visit the studio make sure you go and see them.
I will welcome you feedback on the carded and blended Lincoln Longwool I am bringing along to the fair.
