Made in Clerkenwell at Craft Central

Last weekend I took part in Made in Clerkenwell, the spring open studios at Craft Central. As a network member I was so pleased to have been selected and looked forward to sharing my new work with a wider craft audience.

The gallery space was well curated with lots of talented makers including, Jeanne Marell Jewellery, Jo Davies ceramics and C F McEwan scarves. One of the best parts of the weekend was talking and sharing with other makers. Thank you to Craft Central for having me!!

MADE London

I am so pleased and excited to announce that I have been selected to take part in MADE LONDON in October. This will be my first major craft fair and I can’t wait to take part. My mind is buzzing with ideas, from new pieces to display ideas, and I look forward to preparing over the next few months! I will share photos of my progress along the way.
