Four Corners of Craft selection

I am really excited to have been selected for Four Corners of Craft.  In partnership with the Crafts Council and Tent London, Etsy will make its mark at the London Design Festival with a selling exhibition of cross-disciplinary contemporary craft on 24-27th September 2015 and my jewellery will be some of the work on show!

Hothouse blog post

This year there is a Hothouse blog on the Crafts Council’s website and we have been taking it in turns to write a post. Last week was my turn and I wrote about the Marketing and Audience development day that I went to in Bury St. Edmonds. You can read it here. The blog gives a great insight into our experiences on Hothouse and if you are thinking of applying I would absolutely recommend it – as well as reading the blog you can also find more information here.

Collect 2015

Last week saw the inaugural London Craft Week and there was a lot happening in London as part of it! I managed 3 events, Craft Central Open Studios and Cockpit Arts Open Studios on Friday evening and then Collect on Saturday. It was great to catch up with friends and other makers at all three events. Here are my highlights from Collect:
