Secret Swans – Frome

Friday, June 17th, 2016

As part of Frome Festival & Frome Open Studios, I have made a large willow and silver birch nest for the Secret Swans trail that runs from 2nd July – 10th July.

This is an exciting trail – 30 artists in 30 different venues (shops, cafes, galleries…) around the town.  The artwork is available for sale by secret auction.

The event celebrates 30 years of  the Black Swan Arts centre in Frome and money raised will go towards essential building repairs needed at Black Swan Arts & the Round Tower.

Stop & Stare, exhibition Frome

Friday, May 13th, 2016

I am exhibiting my willow work alongside painters Miriam Sheppard and Ann Warren at The Round Tower, Black Swan Arts in Frome.  The exhibition opened last Saturday and runs until 28th May.

Our works sits very well together and we have received many comments reflecting this.  The Round Tower is a beautiful venue made all the more special by fabulous lunches, cakes and coffee served in the sunny courtyard outside.

Do come and say hello, we are open Monday – Saturday 10-5pm

Arc welding

Friday, March 25th, 2016

At Christmas I was given an arc welder, the tool filled me with both fear and opportunity however it remained in its box until an interesting commission landed in my inbox on 8th January;  “Could I make an 8 foot high willow wine glass?”  Well actually yes I can, what great timing, I kitted up and got practicing with the  welder.

To my surprise another commission came through soon afterwards;  I have a large 2D willow apple (about 3.5m diameter) in the hedge of our orchard on the A37 and a lady wanted a smaller one (1.4m diameter) to put up on a large indoor wall.  A simple metal frame using 6mm steel rod helps this otherwise quite delicate design.

Happy Easter
