Crossing over from Watercolours to Acrylics

I had spent numerous years doing landscapes in watercolours and I loved the detail that you could include and their delicate nature. However, I then began searching for a means to paint in a freer style, but whatever I tried with watercolours didnít really make the grade for me. Fortunately, at the end of the year, I became aware of what people were doing with acrylics when you didnít really set out with a fixed picture in mind Ė ...

A floral escape

I have been obsessed with flowers for as long as I can remember. As a little girl, I was fascinated by any garden I was in, wanting to know what every plant was and (when I was allowed) I would excitedly pick and examine the flowers.

In this process, having photographed my favourite images from my flower ...

The challenges of developing your own business

Sadly no longer with us I have always taken ...

Bisque firing

Been working hard to fill the kiln and very excited to be nearly ready for the bisque firing! This is the first firing when the clay forms are heated to drive off water and change the clay physically and chemically into the permanent hardened structure which can no longer soften and change shape. The process is started gently, gradually heating up to temperatures just under 1000 degrees - the faster the temperature rises the riskier ...

The UK is without doubt one of the most creative and diverse places on Earth.

The talent of makers and artists needs a release, a channel that allows both new and experienced people the chance to market and sell their work. They also need to network with their peers to exchange ideas and experiences. The craft fair can be that channel. It challenges people, it inspires and motivates people to do better and more.

Supporting your local craft fairs as a visitor and purchaser, helps to grow the community and encourage further creative, social and community wealth.
