Hello 2020

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.

Hand stitch is required
Ready for sewing

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.

Well I can say that this week has been so busy I am not sure how we managed it.

All our lambs are now born. three girls and two boys all doing well and our ladies are great mums.

Boy and girl

The ducklings are outside enjoying the sun and the interaction with the other fowl in the garden. And of course our Marlow is keeping a close eye on it all.With all this new life going on I am also getting ready for Amand Hislop to arrive on Friday for the weekend. what an exciting weekend it will be and I for one cannot wait. (there is still time to book. Just go to https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/amanda-hislop) .

Also I am getting ready fro the Kirstie Allsopp Hand Made Fair in May at Ragley Hall. Three days of excitement with like minded people. Lucky John is coming with me.  I will be taking my Sharins, lampshades, bags and other sewn items along with the Powertex brooches and two new products if I can get them finished in time.

Individual Jewellery

I have finished my Time and Tide pieces for the Embroiderers Guild Exhibition in June and I have a piece for the Exhibition at Thornham too. These take place during the Open Studios from 26th May to the 10th June. but more about this at a later date.

The studio is a real mess at the moment with so much happening and on top of all this I have to get my accounts in for my accountant. Not a job I enjoy I have to say.

 

One change this week in the running of our programme is the Embroidery Mondays. Rather than booking up a 6 week block you can book in for the afternoon from 2 pm till 4.30 pm. This appears to be working better than the evenings and you can book in to work on what ever you wish to learn. It is basic beginners embroider and you can learn at your own pace. It is open for all ages.
