With only one week to go until Christmas I've been very busy with orders. I launched my new online store yesterday through this website and received my first 4 orders almost immediately. All items listed have free postage and if you sign up to my mailing list (via the contacts page here) you can receive another little treat too.
Next year is already proving to be busy, I have two trade fairs and a few Summer shows already planned. The first is CRAFT in Earls Court, London. This trade fair is in its first year and runs alongside HOME and TOP DRAWER from 12th- 14th January 2014.
In April I will be exhibiting at British Craft Trade Fair again. It was a great event for me last year and I'm really looking forward to returning.
I received some very exciting news recently, I have been selected as a Hothouse 4 maker. (You might notice that the logo has popped up on my website) Hothouse is a prestigious business mentoring programme run by the Crafts Council providing business and creative support. For more details see: http://www.craftscouncil.org.uk/about-us/press-room/view/2013/38-makers-selected-for-hothouse-4/ This programme starts in January and runs for 6 months.
My next exhibition is taking place at Nottingham Trent University, I have been invited to show my work in the Alumni exhibition 'Since 1843: In The Making'. The exhibition runs from 10th January- 16th February 2014 and I will be attending the preview evening on 8th January. For more details please see the website: http://www.ntu170years.co.uk
