It’s Been A While since the last post as I have been very busy with a number of things.
Starting with the West Norfolk Embroiderers Guild Exhibition in July. I have been sewing items for the exhibition and gathering in others work. The work that has come in is amazing. The theme is a rainbow wall. We are also adding another section of work with all colours in it. Visitors will impressed by the level of work.
Visitors will also be able to purchase the work that is for sale, shop at the stalls, attend the make and take tables and sit and enjoy a drink with cake or biscuits.
The guild members have worked very hard to put this exhibition on and the committee members have spent hours planning and finalising the smallest detail to ensure visitors have an enjoyable experience.
I have also been working on items for the Art and soul exhibition in South Wootton starting on the 17th June in the church. This is a celebration of many local artists work. Not just textiles but other works too. Again it is free to enter and refreshments are available. The aim of this exhibition is not only to show the works of the various artists but also to raise funds for the church. Works are available to buy.
And as the year progresses we have the Textile Show in Wymondham which is always a great show full of fabulous textiles for visitors to see and buy. I understand this is probably going to be the last Textile show at this venue for a while as it is up for development so a new venue is being sourced for next year.
Then it is the Handmade festival at Hampton court. I love this show as I spend a great deal of time chatting to like minded artists and makers as well as the public who love our work. It is a great way to meet new friends as well as catching up with old friends. The fair is over three days so a lot of work goes into it by everyone who is involved.
EBS Retail is doing well at The Barn in Long Sutton. Thank you to everyone who has visited the shop. I am aiming to keep adding to the stock on a regular basis. You are welcome to ask in advance if I have anything in particular you need and I will respond to your enquiries as quickly as possible. Just ping me a email on [email protected],co.uk
Where are we with the workshops?
The Natural Dye Day on Saturday 15th has 2 spaces available. This is not the same workshop as the Embroiderers Guild later in the month.
At The Barn on Sunday I will be teaching how to create stunning Blackwork Cards with a modern twist. We will be in the coffee shop for this workshop.
Alison Hulme will be with us next week so we can print all we can and if we feel like it on day two we can make a pinnie or a bag using the fabrics we printed on during day one. Due to a cancellation we have 2 spaces available now.
At The Barn on Sunday the 23rd June we will be Shibori dying using Procion Dyes. A great way to add colour and pattern to fabrics. Again this will be in the Cafe.
The Pinchbeck Community Hub is a new venue for me to teach at. Once a month I will be there teaching something different. This month it was Powertex next month it will be Blackwork Cards. For more information on these and many other workshops that are happening there contact them using this facebook link .
I will be confirming bookings by the end of July for 2020. Get in touch if your interested in teaching at Eau Brink Studio
Just to let you know that the sheep are all settled with the fleece off and two of the lambs have gone to new homes. the new cockerel has also settled in and the girls appear to be much calmer.
The garden is looking very soggy today but the pond is getting full again.
Next week with the weather permitting we will have some honey. Hurrah
Thank you everyone for your support in my venture.
