Notes from the Studio

After taking a break from my teaching and studio practice, I’m back to my regular routine this week. I wanted to take the time to reflect on what I’ve been making, this is such an important stage of my latest project, helping me to see how I can move forward with new work and putting the finishing touches to any work in progress.

My studio has had a bit of a reorganise, an activity that gives me clarity when I’m feeling particularly  stressed. I moved my shelves and project board around to give me a large surface area to display 3D pieces.

I have a whole weekend in Leeds which I’m really looking forward to, it’s time to get some hand stitching done and put the finishing touches to my box of shirt collars. I also want to start burning my postcards secrets to put inside the Tupperware urn I bought a few months ago.

I’ve been working a collection of pin cushions throughout 2019, something that I started making for fun after turning my hobby into a business. I’ve built up a large collection which includes some really beautiful pieces but I feel more work needs to be done before I exhibit the collection. Time to get my thinking cap on!
