Eau Brink Studio Today
Eau Brink Studio today is a very different story from when we started our little enterprise.
At the beginning we were open for classes taught by other tutors with a varied workshop list. I had plenty of time to spend making items and practising my own art and skills.
The studio was relatively tidy most of the time and the fabrics were all kept in lovely neat spaces.
As we progressed and time marched on I found that I was teaching more and more and we were attracting tutors from further afield. This meant less time for me to work on my own practice and the studio was more often in a mess.
Today we are established as a studio for textile art and crafts. Many other tutors return yearly to teach from afar and new tutors are being introduced regularly too.
I have managed to claw back time to spend in the studio on my own work by creating a new group which I can be me and work on improving my own skills. It is a lovely group which we are keeping small so that we can all help and encourage each other to move our work on.
The studio still has days where it is a mess but mostly now it remains relatively tidy. Though at the time of writing this there is fabric everywhere.
So whats new?
Kits are new. Lots of them too. Many are aimed at beginners to textiles from making cushions to panels for a quilt. Some are still in the development stage and others are ready to packaging.
These kits will be added to the website shop and well as being sold in the physical shop at Long Sutton.
Next Years Programme
Next years programme is almost completed and is very exciting. In the next few days the calendar will be updated and the new workshops will be added.
Included are our regular tutors and some new ones such as Alex Waylett as well as Jenny O’leary. All being well we will be able to have a big workshop each month along side our normal workshops.
Talking of normal workshops we are going to be expanding those too with a little help of one or two local tutors.
Next years exhibitions are also in place now and we are looking forward to attending the Makers festival in Norwich in February, The NEC in March, Open Studios, Brancaster in August and Granchester. With a little bit of luck these will all go ahead.
