It is a busy time at Eau Brink Studio and The Barn.
Why? I will tell you.
As some readers know I have spent the past few weeks setting up my little shop at The Barn in Long Sutton. Now it is beginning to look like a shop with my items I make. There are also one or two items from suppliers which I use when creating and teaching.
The next step has been to introduce workshops for children. Powertex mainly at the moment. Two hours where you can drop the children off and go for a coffee or shopping in peace. Just book them in at the desk. Pay a £5.00 none refundable deposit and then £10.00 to Anita on the day. See posters at The Barn for dates. We will be making wands like the picture shows.
This will include the Sundays when the car boots are on. Then you can drop off the children on the day at what time suits you while you go and look around the car boot. Again it is £15.00 for two hours.
Anita has a fully enhanced DBS check in place. We can accommodate up to 10 children at a time.
During the Easter School Holidays I will be organising the same workshops at Eau Brink Studio. The first being the wand workshop. To take a look at whats on go to www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk
What’s coming up?
Friday the 22nd March till Sunday 24th March I am part of Powertex Open Studios. Open from 10 am till 4 pm each day where you can pop in and take a look at all the lovely things you can make using Powertex. You will get the opportunity to talk to Anita about this medium and what it can be used for.
The Powertex Open Studios will be on once again from Friday 29th March to Sunday 31st March again 10 am till 4 pm. You will get the chance to come and have a go during this second event.
Unfortunately I have had to cancel the Experimental Wednesday on the 20th of March due to an appointment I cannot cancel or change.
The children in the schools are enjoying a number of workshops on a Tuesday Afternoon this term which have so far included a great deal of messy fun.
The King’s Lynn Embroiderers Guild has changed its name to West Norfolk Embroiderers and are holding a drop in Sew and Tell at Eau Brink Studio on Wednesday 27th March from 10 am till 4 pm. Why not pop along and see what we are getting up to? This replaces our evening meeting on the same day.
The Guild members are preparing for their exhibition in July at St Nicholas Chapel in King’s Lynn. I understand there is still space for stall holders. All stalls have to be connected to sewing in some way or form. for further information contact Sandra at [email protected] who will be able to assist you.
Due to cancellations I do have spaces on both of the Cas Holmes workshops in April. To take a look go to https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/two-days-with-cas-holmes/ for the two day workshop and https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/cas-holmes-postcards/ for the one day workshop.
I also have copies of three of Cas Holmes books for sale at the studio and The Barn.
Also in April during the Easter Weekend The West Norfolk Artists are having an exhibition at Thornham. Entry is free so why not come along and see what we have on offer? Spend a little time browsing and then go to the Deli for coffee or lunch. A great trip out.
If you missed our fun at Textiles East just take a quick look at this last post. We are looking forward to next years event.
For those readers who enjoyed looking at the work by a family who came to learn about colour therapy they are returning for even more with a few friends. I will of course post their day so you can see what they are getting up to next week.
We do believe our girls are with lamb and are eagerly waiting for the happy day they arrive. We are expecting the happy event to be in the next four weeks all being well.
I am busy processing the fleece from the last lambs before they went away. When carding it the softness is wonderful. I am bagging it up for the Makit fair at Peterborough. I also have a small amount at The Barn. It is undyed and I am selling at 10 pence a gram.
The ducks are laying again but the crows get to the eggs before us. We will have to do something about that. The chickens are also laying but we do not have a cockerel at the moment so no chicks there for a while.
The bees are busy flying and collecting pollen so hopefully both colonies will be in full flow for two lots this year. The rapeseed is growing so that will have to be collected as soon as they make the honey or it sets so hard it has to be discarded. We cream it so you can spread it on your toast in the mornings.
I hope to see you all soon
