Made By Hand Film

Have a look at this great film by R&A Collaborations of Made By Hand 2016. I'm in there and I think I'm talking at one point although to me it sounds like my alter ego…

Made by Hand will showcases a highly selective group of makers & artists set in the sumptuous surrounding of Cardiff's City Hall. This premier event is part of a portfolio of events organised by Sarah James & Nina Fox. Sarah & Nina also organise the multi award winning, The Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey and founded Made by Hand at Tredegar House near Newport. http://www.madebyhand-wales.co.uk

Ewenny 900 Medieval Fayre

Ewenny 900 Medieval Fayre was a great success. The sun shone all day and there was a great turn out. I made a stained glass panel over the day with lots of curious onlookers and I had the pleasure of the company of Alun and Jayne from Ewenny Pottery and Marvin the basket weaver who makes the cyntell. A traditional craft showcase! And I had to get in character hence the monk outfit! The battle re-enactment guys were great but the musicians stole the show for me. I've alway loved the hurdy gurdy and was the first time I'd heard it played live.

The Cathedral School Llandaff

Work has begun on a new project with The Cathedral School in Llandaff to design and make a stained glass panel to hang in The Lodge. It will commemorate their move into the new building. I've been working all week with nursery, reception, year 1 and 2 creating large scale group drawings to inspire a design based on the theme of 'Growth and Nurture'.

I have to say it's been a great week, the children and staff were wonderful and I'm absolutely shattered! I'll put some more work up as I progress with the project.
