New Life

April 9, 2019

Spring Madness has hit Eau Brink Studio with a flurry of work and new life.

First we have hatched some lovely ducklings. Eight in total. Then two new chicks arrived. And so far two lambs. The Moorhens are nesting and we have a young couple of wild ducks arrive. Luckily our domestic ducks have welcomed them. Even to the point of showing them where we feed our fowl.

We have had lots of fun with the children in the schools making Easter eggs and wands.

The West Norfolk Embroiderers Guild have been to the studio with Anna Shore making hand stitched medallions.

 

I have been stitching away making items for exhibitions which I hope will fit the criteria of each one so they get accepted.

 

I am also planning the workshops for 2020 at Eau Brink Studio. I will inform you each time we add to the calendar.

So where are we with this year?

Cas Holmes will be here this weekend for the two day canvas workshop starting on Saturday. Due to cancellations we do still have two spaces on this workshop. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/two-days-with-cas-holmes/

Cas Holmes one day workshop on Monday also still has two spaces. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/cas-holmes-postcards/

In May Pauline Wrighton will be with us teaching us what the different feet are for on our sewing machines and what we can achieve with using them. This workshop is now half full and has been sent out to the local WI’s and is about to be advertised on the local council websites. So if you are thinking of booking do so without delay. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/finding-your-feet-with-pauline-wrighton/

June is going to be a busy one as we have the lovely Mel from Mellymade designs coming for two days to Revamp a Lamp. Again this is about to be put on the council websites as well as sent to the WI’s so do book if your thinking about it. https://www.eaubrinkstudio.co.uk/event/revamp-a-lamp/2019-06-01/

Then we have the fabulous Alison Hulme for two days getting us to print print print. you can also make a pinny or bag on day two with your printed fabrics. This workshop only has one space left.

September brings Amanda Hislop to Eau Brink Studio for two days and already spaces are getting booked up so do not delay if this is one you fancy.

Of course we do have our regular Experimental Wednesdays, Creative Powertex days and one or two other workshops thrown into the mix.

What an exciting week we have had at Eau Brink Studio with the longer days.

Our first ever lamb was born. Since then we have had a set of twins arrive and one more mum to be is in the final stages of her pregancy.

First ever lamb born
Hello baby Girl.

I cannot wait to see the wool grow and the first locks to get to dye and spin. I may send some away to be professional spun to see how soft it is.

Lambs are not the only new arrivals we have ducklings too.

New grass for the new ducks
Wow first day outside

This means loads of feathers for us to use in the workshops as it brings our total of ducks to ten. That’s a lot of feathers.

All this is very lovely but I also have been sewing like mad getting ready for the Kirstie Allsopp show.

First items to be finished are zippy bags. Pleased with box pleats to give a great shape and lots of room for your goodies to go in. fully lined of course.

Great for ladies needs of all kinds
Zippy Bags come in many colour ways

The next items being made are the Sharpins. These have been filled and are ready for sewing up and buttons added.
