Finger knitting again

I had a lovely couple of hours with the ladies at the Dundee Hard of Hearing Group on Thursday.  I’ve spent time with them before and they are a lovely bunch with a wicked sense of humour!

Perthshire Open Studios

I am starting to prepare for POS (3-11 September 2016).  I have a venue number (71) and am on the Blue Route.  Its quite exciting and daunting at the same time – I have never opened my studio up to public view before (yes, I know its really a shed!).  Lets hope the weather is better than in this picture because I want to have my current den/finger knitting project open for visitors to work on.

It’s live!!

Finally, after four very intense days of work Forgaither has gone live on Issuu.  You can read it here.

This is a digital publication co-produced by the 8 students on my course who are graduating this summer.  With a lot of help from Louisa Preston (of Stirling University and St Andrew’s University) we have managed to navigate the ups and downs of this kind of collaboration and I think we’ve done a pretty good job.

Try getting eight artists in one room to work on one project and differences of opinion are bound to happen.  However, that aside, it has been great fun and a brilliant learning experience.
