Talking of Craft Events

Tis a busy weekend all round.  We have our open event at Shed 2 Studios on Saturday 13th November, so that will keep me out of mischief for a while.

Elsewhere, also this weekend, is Lustre, an annual contemporary craft event held at Nottingham's Lakeside Arts Centre. 

 This is an exciting year, because four of my course colleagues have been selected for their "Young Meteors" scheme, so will be exhibiting.


Robyn Holgate, who makes beautiful products from printed, steam bent wood, which are finished off with hand crocheted trims.  She posted these new items recently on her blog.


Deborah Miles, who makes automata from recycled wood and tin - this is an example of some work that went to the Catmose Gallery in Rutland. I am sure the work Deb takes to Lustre will be equally fun.


Another Shed 2 resident, Nicola Lidstone, will be taking a selection of beautiful, hand-shaped porcelain animal sculptures



I haven't been able to speak to Katie Heeks lately but these Gardens of Personal Delight are quite stunning, intricate little fantasy worlds.  I can't wait to see what she's making for the show.

If you get the chance to make it over to Nottingham, Lustre is well worth a visit, a show full of high quality contemporary craft work.
