Out on the road....

Last week was a busy one and luckily everything planned happened just before the snow arrived on Saturday night.

I dropped off a delivery of work to The Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton, this is a lovely big gallery in the centre of Northallerton just off the main street. I was delighted to be invited to lead a felt making workshop there on Saturday 4th May, the workshop will cover the Resist technique, by the end of the day you will go home with a beautiful, useable handbag. Lunch is included too!
You can book a place online here if you would like to join the workshop.....maybe see you soon

A journey to The Dales and a lovely visit with Clare Gardiner at Fabric of the Field weaving studio and gallery. Clare sells my work in her beautiful shop where she sits and weaves. Some of you may already know Clare and her gorgeous blog about life in the Dales and at the moment, in particular, Lambing!
Clare's journey will be on the screen sometime this year in The Dales programme when it returns to our screen, really looking forward to this....

Lunch at The Wensleydale Creamery was a must, the Rarebit was gorgeous, followed by an indulgent Sticky Toffee Pudding. Will definitely be returning soon.....

As we were passing we just had to visit Farfield Mill, a wonderful place with varying Exhibitions throughout the year, check their website for current details. There are also lots of makers studios there, unfortunately when we were there none of the makers were in their studios, will pick a different day next time. Nonetheless its  a lovely place with a great cafe too!

Friday saw me on my way to Kendal to  a Saturday workshop with the IFA at Castle Arts Centre. The weather was getting wetter, but still very driveable. Saturday flew by and the centre we were in was busy, a ballet class was taking place next door which evoked memories of my childhood......
By the time I travelled home the weather was awful, the fells were covered in snow and we decided to change our route to the main roads to avoid the snow. Much later that night we were home and warm.
