Friday 10 February 2012


I arrived back in the UK last night, what's all this snow about!?  It's been a bit of a shock to the system I have to say.

Now that I'm back there is so much to do and prepare for, I will be demonstrating at Osbourne Stationers in Sheldon, Birmingham this Sunday (12th) so if you are local why not pop by, it would be lovely to meet you. 
I'm also very excited this morning to have received all the sets of my new stamps,  I can now prepare for Stitches next week. Sooooooo looking forward to it this year!! I will be demonstrating on the Decoart stand B04 which is located close to the main entrance, if you are attending please please do come and say hello.

I have been so inspired by Bahrain and the middle east in my recent visits that I am holding a one off altered box workshop called The Eye of Fatima, this is to be held at the Craft Barn on the 14th of April 2012.
Now, I have to say that if you want rust and cogs this is probably not the workshop for you, but if you are seeking a little eastern promise in your life :) then be sure to book up on this one!

I will leave you with some glass fusing workshop pictures from Studio Ceramics in Bahrain,  as soon as I get the finished fused pictures through I will post them.
If you have not experienced glass fusing and slumping, I strongly suggest you look into it,  its a wonderful way to spend a creative couple of hours.

  1. Oh my! You aren't stopping to get over jet lag are you! It looks like those crafters in Bahrain had a ball, hope you did too. Looking forward to hearing more about your travels. Stay warm.

  2. Hi Andy,

    I will pop into the shop on Sunday to meet you I want to get some of your stamps.I think they will go perfectly with my DT and Demo work I do with PanPastel.


  3. Look forward to meeting you there :)

  4. Can't wait to see what you do with your new stamps.

  5. Welcome back!!! It's amazing what could happen in a few days of Looks like an awsome workshop. Hope you had fun!

  6. I too, cannot wait to see what you create with your stamps! The "The Eye fo Fatmina" offering sounds very intriguing. I look forward to reading more about it. Glad the glass fusing was a success and that while in Bahrain and the middle east, you found inspiration to create. :)
