East Yorkshire Open Studios 2015!

I am very excited to be taking part in the East Yorkshire Open Studios this October for two weekends!

Preparation is in full swing! A little paint here and a little tidy there, but most importantly some creativity and printing! I am so excited to have two full weekend at home with hopefully some visitors to pop by and discuss screen printing with! 

You can find myself and the very talented Jenny Morton right opposite each other! Along with Rosemary Abrahams also located in Bridlington. 

Dylan has been the first favourite I have been printing! I have also been experimenting with these hand printed fabric pieces and making them into bunting! 

I love printing and have some exciting events I am attending over Christmas! 


East Yorkshire Open Studios is on the 10th/11th 17th/18th of October! You can pick up a brochure locally in Bridlington at the Victoria Mill or please drop me a message :)

Getting Green Fingers This Summer!

This summer I have been very busy in my garden. Last year, it was my first year practicing and finding out about my new home. I have a number of trees but last year only saw a plum or two.     This year the tree has blossomed and I have mountains of plums. Which my lovely nan has been busy making them into jam!

We have also found out we have an apple and pear tree. There is quite a few pears but only a
couple of apples. At the weekend I also discovered there caterpillars amongst my willow tree. First I found one, then I discovered 5, all eating away at the leaves. After researching I do believe it is a hawk eye moth. I will keep an eye out incase they change. I was surprised how huge they was.
I also felt lucky when I discovered this clover hiding behind my herbs!

I absolutely love my garden, it is definitely a new hobby I love. Its such a shame summer is coming to an end but I will still continue to spend time tidying when I can. This year I have managed a crop of blackcurrants, potatoes, peas, runner beans, onions, and some raspberries and strawberries. We have just planted a blue berry bush so hopefully this will be growing and produce a few in the future :)
