Christmas sales and workshops

A quick heads up on a couple of sales I’m taking part in before Christmas.

sprout flyerFirst up is two weeks with Women of the Cloth at Sprout Community Arts in Streatham. As well as selling our work, my sister WOTC Carol and Joan  will be running workshops in felting, crochet, weaving and embroidery. We’ll also have a couple of guest artists, one of whom (Janet Thompson) will be running a workshop on needlefelted dogs.

The sales and workshops run from 27 November to 10 December. The private view is on Wednesday 27 November, 6.30-9pm – everyone welcome!

Sprout Community Arts is at 74 Moyser Road, Furzedown, London SW16 6SQ.

DIGGIN_DESIGN_A5_FLYER_B_V3_no crop_Page_1Then on Sunday 1 December Carol and I will be at the Garden Museum’s Diggin’ Design, a great collection of artists and designers offering sustainable, eco-friendly gifts. There will also be animals in residence from Vauxhall City Farm!

Open 10am-5pm, £3 entry on the door (includes access to exhibitions, permanent collection and beautiful 17th century knot garden)

The Garden Museum is at 5 Lambeth Palace Road, London SE1 7LB.

I’ll be selling lots of upcycled scarves (of course) – including this gorgeous silk wrap. This was a plain red sample by Maria Grachvogel that was in the job lot of scarves that I successfully bid for at Kerry Taylor. It’s difficult to photograph because of its translucency – but take my word for it, it’s beautiful. 😉

There will also be felt and some smaller bits and pieces, like these crocheted lavender sachets (dried lavender kindly donated by my friend Judith).

Upcoming events

morley inviteAlthough I haven’t attended Morley College this term, I’m still eligible to put something in the Textiles Advanced Workshops end of year exhibition in Morley Gallery. To be honest, I’m still not quite sure what I’ll be exhibiting, but it’s likely to involve felt! 😉 And I hope to catch up with some of the students who attended previous terms.

The exhibition runs from 18 to 25 July, and the private view is on 17 July, 6-8pm. You are all cordially invited!

Summer Tumblr flyer_Page_1 Summer Tumblr flyer_Page_2Then on 21 July, Carol and I from Women of the Cloth are having a stall at the Summer Tumblr at the Garden Museum. As we are both felters, there will undoubtedly be various fleece-based articles for sale, though I will probably take some indigo scarves as well.

Summer Tumblr is at the Garden Museum, Lambeth Palace Rd, London SE1 7LB, on Sunday 21 July, 10am-6pm.
