House Beautiful Best of British Awards

Was delighted to learn that my Heals Discovers collection won a silver award at the House Beautiful Best of British Awards last week.  Lovely news - thank you House Beautiful!

Open Studios at Model House, Llantrisant, 8/9 Dec

Do come and visit Model House Craft and Design Centre on the 8/9 Dec for our Christmas Open Studios event (although you can visit any time!)  I'll be weaving away in the studio that weekend, and will have some festive nibbles for you to sample as well!  Lots of the other tenants will be there too AND its also the Llantrisant Parish Church Christmas Tree Festival that same weekend.

(Please note that unfortunately we don't have a cash machine in Old Llantrisant - the nearest is in Talbot Green. Most of the individual artists and makers resident in Model House don't have card payment facilities  so please bring cash or cheques to finish your Christmas shopping.)

Look forward to helping you 'shop local' and support independent makers and retailers this Christmas :-)

Warp & Weft by Jessica Hemmings

Oh, am sooooo delighted to announce that the latest book exploring contemporary woven textiles by Jessica Hemmings has now been published, and yes, it features some of my work. I got my copy last week and its brilliant - lots to inspire and intrigue for all interested in textiles. Put it on your Christmas wishlist!

Tis that time again...... for the third consecutive year, I'm delighted to be exhibiting at Made by Hand in Tredegar House, Newport. I'll have lots of new works to share with you which I'm finishing making as we speak.... some photos to follow very soon!

As an extra incentive to visit, you might be interested to know that I'll be giving a talk about my work on Saturday at 1pm.

Very much hope to see you there :-)
