My next exhibition of the year is the Cloth Road Arts Week which runs from Saturday 3 to Sunday 11 May. The arts week is 9 days of open studios and exhibitions with a chance for you to meet the artists and talk to them about their work. Wandering around the trail is a lovely way to spend a day and it you treat yourself to a piece of art it will be that much more special for buying direct from the artist rather than anonymously through a shop.
I will be exhibiting at The Pound Arts Centre in Corsham for the full 9 days. The Pound is open 10am – 9pm each day (10-4 on Sunday and Monday bank hol) and I will be there the majority of the time. You’re very welcome to come and have a look at my work and have a chat. There’s a lovely cafe there where you can have tea, coffee and cake!
Myself and my good friend Breige King will also be running ring making workshops during the week so this is your chance to have a go! You will learn some basic silversmithing skills, including forming, filing, hammering/texturing and polishing and will end up with a ring that looks like this!
You will also have the chance to personalise your ring by stamping your initials on the inside of the band.
The workshop is only £35 and will take up to 2 hours, including half an hour for your ring to be tumble polished while you celebrate a job well done in the cafe.
Please contact me to book a place or if you’re nearby come and see us to reserve your place. Space is limited so get in there quick!
