Hello 2020, Wow a new year and a new decade. This means change at Eau Brink Studio.
For some time now I have found myself moving further and further away from what I originally intended when setting up the studio. And it made me very unhappy.
With this in mind whilst I was unable to do anything before Christmas I decided to sort it out.
Firstly I took a look at what I had been doing over the year and if I enjoyed it. The answer was mostly yes but some areas were a definite no.
So the no’s had to go. But what can I replace it with as I still have to pay the bills? And to be honest a regular job is not for me.
My lovely brother has joined us from Kent and we have decided to open up a tea room together. Danny trained as a chef so his food is divine but he hates baking and desert making, where as I love baking. So that works perfectly.
We opened our tea room in The Barn in Long Sutton because there was an existing coffee shop but the the lady who ran it had an accident and can not work for a while. The local Council will not let me have a teas shop at the studio which would be better. But we will work with what we have.
Now I am sure you are wondering what is going.
Well firstly the workshops that very few book onto. That is Powertex and Sewing machine confidence. These will be by appointment only from now on.
I will also adopt a new system for upcoming workshops where if there are not enough learners up to two week prior to the workshop it will be cancelled. With the exception of other artists teaching as they will decide up to one month in advance if they are going to run it.
The studio will not be idle. Anyone can book it to run workshops or to use the space if they wish. You just need to email me and I will discuss your needs and the costs involved.
Exhibition and Fairs
I will be exhibiting with the Progression group, West Norfolk Artists, at Wymonham with the Norfolk Makers and attending the Hand Made Fair at Hampton Court this year.
I will be also taking part in Textiles in action and Open Studios.
Website and contact.
My website will reflect all these changes over the coming weeks but please bear with me as I get it sorted out. If you wish to get hold of me it will be better to email me at [email protected]
You can of course call me on 01553 762115 or on 07827674920 do leave a message if I cannot answer and I will return your call asap.
So as I said at the beginning of this blog. Hello 2020 it looks like a great year ahead.
