This seems to be a constant heading of mine as I am always on the march to make new designs. So far I have been able to deliver new pieces to to the three galleries that stock my work:
Tiny Gallery - Henley
ByGillian - Bourne End
Links to these galleries are on my Stockists page
Two shows completed and my new work was well received. It was my first showing on the Whiteknights Studio Trail and what a fun trail to be part of.
Wokingham Arts Trail is my next show followed by a show at Norden Farm in Maidnehead. See my Exhibitions Page for more info and dates on these shows. It would be lovely to see you at the Wokingham Arts Trail and talk about anything jewellery and silversmithing.
It has been a busy year already with classes booking quickly. There's been lots of learning and exciting stuff made; look at the pictures on the Termly Classes and One Day Classes pages to see some examples. The Summer is now coming so there will be dates for one day classes happening over the Summer at Woodley soon. New dates for Norden Farm are up now and booking will take place in a few weeks.
Trip to London
Due to the snow falling (see below) I organised another trip to London to tour the assay office and shop for stones and bullion. This was again enjoyed by all so I will be organising another trip in 2019.
Well the snow fell in February but it did not stop us going to London to visit Goldsmith's Hall to see their Resource/Library Centre and the exhibition that was on there. Unfortunately we could not get a tour of the assay offfice as David Merry, who does the tours was too far out in the countryside to be able to tackle the snow to get in. This has benefitted us as I am now organising another trip so students can see hallmarking being done and take advantage of going to Hatton Garden again to buy supplies.
Goldsmith's Hall is a wonderful building and it is free to go in with an exciting timetable of exhibitions, added to that a lunch stop at Has at the end of the road and it is a perfect day out.
