My first open studios at Cockpit Arts took place at the beginning of the month. It felt a little strange to be packing away my tools having only recently set up my new space! It was a lovely weekend chatting to visitors, getting to know other makers and generally feeling festive.
COSMIMA is a jewellery collective of 5 makers (Daphne Krinos, Louise O’Neill, Chris Carpenter, Hidemi Asano and Ulla Hornfeldt) who have been exhibiting together for 14 years. Each year they have a November show in Clerkenwell and invite 4 guest makers, this year they were Adi Toch, Simone ten Hompel, Isabelle Busnel and me! It was a wonderful weekend…
I am delighted to have successfully applied for a place at Cockpit Arts, Deptford. My official start date was November 1st however I waited to move until I got back from Lustre! I thought I would pack up my studio one day, move it in the next and be making again by the following day - it didn't quite work like this and took a week really to get in and get settled. Here are some images from the move:
At the beginning of November I headed up to Nottingham to exhibit at Lustre. Lakeside Arts is a great venue within Nottingham University campus. We had lovely weather and it was great to get out of London and try a new event.
