It is Exhibition Time at Eau Brink Studio, which means that I have work in many places for you to see.
Firstly at The West Norfolk Embroiderers Guild Exhibition in St Nicholas Chapel over the Weekend of the 13th and 14th. We has so many visitors that we worried we would run out of cake but the lades did us proud and kept everyone topped up with tea and cake.
The exhibition was a resounding success, with many visitors and fabulous comments from all. The committee worked hard to make sure that everyone how submitted work had it all displayed. The stall holders encouraged all visitors to look at the exhibits and vote on their favourite.
The next Exhibition is in September at Wymondham and current works are already being prepared for that one.
I have been making cushions for my home and now will be working on cushions to add to my shop with Christmas themes just for fun. More on those in coming blogs.
Experimental Wednesdays will become a new group for the first Wednesday of each month called Experimental Textiles. The aim is to get it set up for the first Wednesday in September. Current Experimental Wednesday customers have asked for this for some time now and it has taken me a while to get it sorted out. We will have to restrict numbers so that there is plenty of space to work in. I will continue with another Experimental Wednesday on the 3rd week of each month for those who do not wish to belong to the new group.
The aim of Experimental Textiles is to push boundaries with our work and to be part of the exhibition during Makers Month in February each year. We will also be organising fringe events during February at Eau Brink Studio. Also we will run an exhibition during the Open Studios in June each year. During which we will run workshops and demonstrations for visitors.
Do not be thinking it will all be ultra modern work as we can also push traditional works by using modern colours and fabrics as well as threads. Such as a piece called Blue Bird by a lady called Katherine which uses strands of blue threads stitched in Blackwork pattern and a 3D wing which is needle woven.
The studio is currently being moved around to accommodate a new super large printer for group members to use for larger pieces such as wall hangings and quilts if they wish.
This printer will also be made available to other groups and individuals from September 2019.
And just because I can
Our new cockerel is producing little babies just like this one who is two days old.
