Artisan studio is looking wonderfully creative at the moment!

Leah Watts has now started teaching Contemporary Textiles  from 7.00 - 9.00  pm on Thursdays ( with a bit of patchwork and quilting thrown in).



Puppet theatre made by the Home Educated Children's group.
The Home Educated Children I teach at the studio have been designing and making houses with clay.






Pallet garden furniture arrived yesterday - made by the great guys at New Leaf Community Allotment - we traded - I am doing a family printmaking workshop for them in June in exchange for this furniture and some other pieces which will come later. They even made a gully down the middle of the table  - planting strawberries in it!

I bought 3 old coffee tables from the tip for £1!!! Painted them.


Courtyard garden now looking great! Just need some sun to enjoy it!
