Goodness I can hardly believe that it is now officially ‘spring’ and we are quickly heading towards the end of March. It must be time for a quick update.
My aim for this year is to get into some more Galleries as I like to think this is where my work should be heading with some larger, stunning pieces of mosaic art. Next week I have been invited to visit a Gallery with a view to them taking some of my pieces to display. I shall keep you posted but in the meantime, please keep your fingers crossed for me.
Crafty Beggars in the House, series one, is currently being shown so if you have missed any episodes you can catch up by going to the Community Channel website and going to ‘On Demand’. I shall be in series 2 which will be shown sometime in April. I will let you know dates when I know.
The lovely presenters Julie Peasgood and Wendy Turner Webster have recently asked me what my top mosaics tips are. It was good to take time away from actual mosacing to consider the things I think are important and relevant that I would say to someone who is thinking of having a go at mosaics. With the technical magic of their web designer Mark Saltmarsh, my Top Tips are now on their website. Do go and have a look and let me know what you think: www.craftybeggarsTV.com. I am now considering doing a little series of Top Tips to put on the Blog, covering other aspects of mosacing – what areas would you like to hear tips about? Do email and let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org
I am delighted to say that I have had an article published in the ‘Grout Magazine’ about my Marple Mosaic commission. Grout is the newsletter for BAMM – British Association for Modern Mosaics, which is sent to all their members.
And finally, you will remember that Kitty organised and led a group of us to make 15 mosaic butterflies for Meadow House Hospice. I am delighted to report that they now adorn the bedroom doors at the hospice. They look fantastic and everyone is really pleased with them.
Have a great Easter everyone and see you all in April.
