POWERTEX RETURNS

After a what seems a long time we have begun teaching Powertex once again. Our first learners were a lovely Husband and Wife team celebrating their wedding anniversary. Rather than going out for a meal they decided a workshop full of fun would create long lasting memories.

The day was a blast and they managed to complete several items including a jar, champagne glass and canvas.

We not only used many Powertex products which included the fabric hardener, easy varnish, pigments and Easy Structure but added acrylic paints and Scolabrush to the mix.  The results were amazing.

If your interested in a days workshop with Anita just email on admin@eaubrinkstudio.co.uk or call on 01553 762115. Of course you can also message through www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk and all social media.

What are you doing? This is what I hear from John when he pops into Eau Brink Studio.

large studio

I have spent the past week in the studio reorganising and cleaning.

Clearing our cupboards that have been in need for a long time now.

Making decisions on how to move forward for the future. And this is what I am going to do.

Powertex

What are you doing about the Powertex? I have decided that I am no longer going to work with Powertex or teach it. I am still in two minds whether to keep it in the shop but we will see.

My decision for stopping this service is based on my having taken it as far as I can with my textiles and have found the only thing I really do enjoy making with it is the brooches.

Schools

As many of you know I have already given up going into the schools to teach art and crafts. I had been approached to return to two schools but have decided against it. This is because it takes a great deal of preparation for the small amount of time I have with the students.

Progression

I love this group and with the members we are planning great things for our future. Exhibitions are our intention. We are also considering a stand next year at the NEC. Including workshops by our members. Other exhibitions will include open studios, The Makers Fair in Norwich and hopefully Granchester. We of course will be looking at other venues to exhibit. Our exhibitions include the sale of our work and in some cases we will encourage sales tables from other artists. We are very excited about our future. Even at this time we hold a regular Zoom meeting to keep each other motivated.

Workshops

I am planning next years workshops now and am approaching artists to join us at Eau Brink studio. What am I doing? I am ready to add to the calendar some workshops for eco dyeing, Procion dyeing, and resist dyeing.

Other workshops will include the Experimental Wednesdays which I am considering making more structured as they used to be. With a different technique each month to explore.

Print and Make
Alison and her lovely pinnies

I am hoping Alison Hulme will return but this is not the time to contact her about work. But of course I will update you on her workshops as I know.

Amanda Hislop too which we will discuss at her workshop this year if we can still go ahead in September.

Cas Holmes may also visit next year if she is free.

Melanie Missin too of course as we had to cancel this years workshop.

These are just a few of the artists I am in contact with for the new years calendar.

West Norfolk Artists Association

This groups exhibitions are always popular and as an exhibitor I can say I do look forward to them. The artists are all very focused on producing high quality art which is popular. I will continue to exhibit my work through this association in the coming year.

Mixed media hat
Just finished this hat.

My personal work will involve two things.

I am looking to concentrate on using the heat press for as long as I can get new things to work with it. I love the speed of it and the different results I get with different media. The plan is to work with the heat press and soluble film. The combination can either be fabulous or disastrous but we will see what happens. Could add another element such as Tyvek too.

Most of the items I make are going into my shop at Long Sutton.

The other aspect of my work is also in Long Sutton at the Tearoom.  I have been playing with cakes and deserts during this enforced closure and can report that our customers who have home delivery are enjoying the new flavoured cheesecakes as well as the little sweet pies. I am looking forward to returning.

John will always say What Are You Doing to me when I am in the studio as he does not understand what I get up to but he does like some of the results. Particularly the new work.

It’s Been A While since the last post as I have been very busy with a number of things.

Whats Happening?

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 info@eaubrinkstudio,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 .

2020

I will be  confirming bookings by the end of July for 2020. Get in touch if your interested in teaching at Eau Brink Studio

Personally

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.

At last we have Longer Days so that light is not a problem for us sewers.

I love to be able to use natural light rather than the artificial sort. Natural light makes it easier to see so less strain on the eyes.

Stitching outside is something I love to do and I plan to get the lucky man of the moment to make me a table just for this purpose. It will need to be solid, stable and large. Able to take the sewing machine working flat out. It will need a cover I think for the rainy days but if its treated I suppose it should be okay. If he is reading this blog it will be the first time I have mentioned it to him.

Out and About

This week we have been to the Makit Fair in Peterborough. A fabulous new venue. Thank you everybody who came and said hello, joined in the make and take, and for the organisers of course who make it all possible. I am looking forward to the next one in St Ives. One conversation I had with a number of people was the sad fact that the various guilds are in decline and what we can do to give them a boost. I would like to write a piece on this so I am asking for your thoughts on it. Why do you think the Embroiderers Guild, Quilt Guild and Lace Guild are not thriving? Either respond to this blog or email me on admin@eaubrinkstudio.co.uk

I have also had a great meeting with some lovely ladies in the Pinchbeck community Hub about delivering workshops for their craft group once a month. The first will be a Powertex workshop on the 8th of June. For more information just contact Beautiful Designs on 07846733943. Then in July we will be introducing hand stitch. Blackwork  with a modern twist.

And then there is The Barn in Long Sutton. My little shop is now filling up nicely with haberdashery and hand made goods. On a Thursday evening from 4 pm till 7 pm I will be organising make and takes as well as short workshops. Starting this Thursday with a Powertex make and take. Then on weekends there will be other workshops including mixed media tasters.

Coming up

This weekend I will be with other makers in Thornham Village Hall from 10 am till 4 pm for Textiles in Action. Come along and see all the different types of textiles from Weaving to hand stitch and everything in between

The Barn in Long Sutton have a Car Boot along with a family fun day. From 10 am till 4 pm. Care boot pitches are free this month so why not get in touch and see whats going on?

West Norfolk Embroiderers guild meeting is at Knights Hill on Wednesday 29th May from 19.30 till 21.30. why not pop along and listen Moira Neal talking about an old cotton sheet??. You will be made welcome by our members and who knows you may like to join.

And last but not least

Our lovely chickens have a new boyfriend. He is lovely and just finding his voice. On your next visit to the studio stop and say hello to him. Steve 4th is black and white with green tail feathers. Very different from the others.

 

The lambs will be moving to their new homes at the end of this week. Though we are keeping one who is definitely a little princess.

Embellishing means different things to different people. There are many ways to embellish your clothing and work but have you ever thought of using an Embellishing machine? I had and then decided it was not for me so have resisted using one for a long time. For me it was due to the breaking of needles which becomes expensive if the needles all have to be replaced at the same time. However , I recently found that you can get a machine that only needs the needles replaced one at a time. Far more economical.

So now Eau Brink Studio has a new machine to help with felting items together. To see it in action just follow this link to the Facebook page. This is showing you one of the many flowers I am making ready for next year. You will be able to buy them individually or in packs for you to use on your own work or as a brooch.

Embellished flowers

flowers

They will also be available as pictures and hangings once finished. I am going to add beads as well as other items. Here are some as works in progress. They just need the beads added and framing. Though I may add a little bit more to them.

This may make a nice little workshop for just half a day.

 

 

Sequins for glittering baubles

Boy have I got through a shed load of hand cream making these lovely baubles. Big thank you to John for cutting hundreds for little squares for me for the workshops.  For those of you who could not make these due to fingers not wanting to work, I know you enjoyed making the sequin versions as it is easier to get the pins to go into the balls, bells and hearts.

 

How many of you guys want to be able to sew fabulous designs but struggle to find the designs you like at a reasonable price? I can help you with that. Pink Ink Designs print onto fabulous linen ready for you to paint and stitch.

Hand stitch is required

I love this design as it lends itself to many stitches. The bonus with these is that you can paint them first then stitch into them. Once I have stitched this I will post it for you to see the finished item.

 

 

I am now slowing down for the holiday season. but I am around if you want to drop in for a coffee and cake or just a chat. Call first on 01553 762115 or message me on 07827674920 and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

I am at Silverwood in Long Sutton and The Craft Barn also in Long Sutton. Both are open 10 till 4 daily. Though the Barn is open late on Thursdays.

We all know that preparation is key but there are times when no matter how hard we try outside influences can impact our plans.

What do you do to plan your week?

I have an excellent diary planner which has the whole year planned out. I know where I should be each day as well as the preparation I need to do.

My week starts on a Sunday evening when I should get my blog finished ready for the social media to send it out to you all on Monday.

I then look at what I need to have ready for each day. This week I need to add in extra towels and rollers for an added workshop for felt flower making. I need to Plan a workshop for Monday afternoon, cut out many flower shapes for the school on Tuesday, ensure there is plenty of cake on Wednesday.

The website needs updating, the social media scheduled emails need to be kept on top of.

Then I get to spend the rest of the time making lovely items for the fairs and shops. Which means cutting them out once I have decided what I need. But not this Sunday as I have been at Dents Farm.

 What a fabulous weekend we have had. Thank you for stopping by and saying hello. And thank you to all our customers old and new. It was lovely to see you all.

 

 

So what’s coming up then I hear you ask?

·       Thread and machine needles to match your fabric

·       Sewing machine

·       Sewing kit i.e. Scissors (Paper and Fabric) Pins, Hand needles, Tape measure etc

Recurring Event (See all)

£20.00

Mixed Media

There are many ways to decorate fabric and paper using stitch, dyes, paints and other mediums. But have you ever thought about mixing up the paints and stitches? What about making your own surface to stitch into or to add to using paints or other embellishments? How many kits are lurking in your craft room or cupboards that you have not used yet?

 

Experimental Wednesday at Eau Brink Studio is a day where you can be free to experiment using any medium you like. We have put paper to fabric, made paper, dyed fabrics and used the left over dye as ink. 

We look around us and think about what everyday objects can be used for in our experimenting. for example: take some rusty objects and lay them over and around fabric. Leave for  a few weeks and then unwrap. Lovely rust dyed fabrics to sew into. 

 

Snow is something many dread. We look forward to it as then we can use it to dye fabrics using Procion Dye crystals.

The world around us makes many synthetic fabrics which can be coloured and then heated to make the most fantastic surfaces. Such as Tyvek, Lutradour, and of course everyday plastics.

Every Wednesday from 10am till 4pm. From £20.00 per day and then additional costs for materials. Refreshments included but not lunch.

October 15, 2018

Sew what’s New at Eau Brink Studio then?

We have a small section of our goods at The Barn in Long sutton. Why not pop along and see what other goodies are there? I have planned a few workshops at The Barn which will commence in November. These will be a drop in day where you can make a brooch or jar with Powertex. Get to grips with Xpandaprint and Scolarbrush as well as  few more mixed media goodies to play with.

I am also going to be working in Silverwood  also at Long Sutton.  The plan is to run workshops commencing in November which will include dying fabrics, Patchwork for beginners, getting to know your sewing machine as well as the Powertex brooches.

Here at Eau Brink Studio I am excited to announce that Pippa Pease will be here on the 26th of November teaching a beginners Skirt Making workshop. More information will be available soon. It is hoped that we can make this into a monthly sewing group with a different project each month. The plan is that each individual will learn a new set of skills at the beginning and then add to those skills so that you can tackle any project.

I am very excited as I have managed with the help of Pauline Wrighton to at long last master book making. My books were always too loose and did not sit properly. It turned out that I was using the wrong threads. Thank you Pauline.

 

As many of your know I do make lampshades using Shibori techniques. Now John has been making the bases for me and I have been sewing into the bark to add decoration. The plan is to mirror the stitching on the shades so ensure they match. the challenge is to get the bark back onto to base without it looking flat and uninteresting. I am hopeful that I can iron out the problems before Wymondham in a weeks time.

We are nearly at half term already and the children in the school have been making witches and wizards. Pumpkins and stitched coasters. This week they will be making ghost decorations.  After the half term break I will be going into another school and we will be looking at making items for Autumn. I will be getting a little sewing in there.

 

Booking for the workshops for the next year are beginning to be booked which is great news for us all. Included in this is the Airbnb workshops. What are they I hear you cry. I have registered some days on Airbnb experiences which I means that anyone staying in the area can come and play by booking through Airbnb experiences.


September 17, 2018

This week we at Eau Brink Studio have been attending fairs at Wymondham and Hampton Court Palace.

Although a very busy time we have had great fun.

Wymondham has been a two week event of displaying our Textiles and of course selling them. The King’s Lynn Embroiderers Guild had many items from our members to showcase the work we make and to encourage new members.

 

 

Wow what a roller coaster of a weekend this turned out to be. Thursday we packed up the van and trudged off to London. We made good time until we were near Hampton Court and then the traffic was horrendous. John and I agreed we would never complain about the traffic in King’s Lynn again. We duly awaited our allotted time to unload and then set up the stall with many other traders all working together to help each other. there was also a team of maintenance guys to help too. And of course the Health and Safety guy was wondering along ensuring we complied to the rules.

And here we are all set up and ready for the Friday mornings start.

Friday we had to be sure all was okay by 9am. Meaning we were there at 8am making sure that all the items were priced and we had enough packaging if needed.

 

Kirstie spent time wondering around looking at all the stalls and chatting to the stall holders until she opened the event at 09.30. She was around for the entire three days and on the Saturday evening hosted a social event for the stall holders.

 As the early mornings and long days kick in by the end of day three the thought of driving home is not a pleasant one. Of course we did get stuck on the M25 in very slow traffic.

As we reflect on the busy days and the lovely people we have met it was a great experience.

I was particularly pleased to see the people from Norfolk who popped in and said hello. Thank you for your support.

Of course it was very difficult not to go shopping myself.I have only bought a little bit of fabric, a pattern or two. John ought me  a lovely pair of warm silk fluffy slippers.  Not bad really.

Whats next then?

Cas holmes will be here on the weekend of the 29th of September. her course is full but I will see what we can get her to do next year. Probably earlier in the year.

Then we have Clare Hedges in October. There are spaces available for this course so do book if you want to join us as I have had a lot of enquiries about it. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/tiny-acorns-to-terrific-tassels-passementerie-workshop/2018-10-06/

I will be updating the website of the next few days with other coursed that will range from one to two days. Including Melly Made lampshades for the new year. This one will be over two days so you get to finish your masterpiece.

I am looking at starting another group for Experimentals as the group that meets on the first Wednesday is getting rather full. My plan is that if we have two meeting dates then everyone can switch between the two and get to know each other. That way if you miss a date you can catch up with the other group.

More News.

From the 1st of October I will be selling items and planning small workshops in the Barn at Long Sutton. I am really looking forward to this as I have been waiting for a space for some time now.

Also at Le Strange Barns in Hunstanton I am supplying more of my items as they keep selling out so a bigger space has been allotted to me.

One last note..

The King’s Lynn Embroiderers Guild are holding a workshop at Eau Brink Studio by Moira Neale. Fabric faces will be on the 20th of October from 10am till 4pm. There are two spaces available for this day. If you would like to book please contact Christine on c.booth972@btinternet.com who will be able to help you.

The cost is £35.00 for none members and £30.00 for Embroiderers Guild Members. You will need to give your membership number on booking. Here is a little snippet of what will be going on..

On this workshop we will concentrate on making just the faces. You may prefer to make one large one or two or three smaller versions. If there is time you could add clothing too.

I will be showing you how to free machine and there will be plenty of opportunity to practice before working on your faces. This workshop is a bit of fun….the wonkier your stitching, the quirkier the result! Just come along and enjoy the day and learn how to make faces to include in your quilts or to make a gallery of your friends and family!

See you all soon.

Anita
