Well it’s all very exciting for me as I’ve now found a studio at New Brewery Arts in the centre of Cirencester… so I’ve been working hard to fill it up with new stock in gorgeous neon summer colours. It’s light and spacious with plenty of display area and It’s a joy to have the room to work on several pieces at the same time. I’m also enjoying being in the centre of a busy, important town with lots of footfall and some very seductive shoe and clothes shops to hand. New Brewery Arts is a charity that has renovated the old brewery building which now accommodates a shop offering handmade quality goods and a few open studios (like mine) where people are invited to come in and view the making/designing processes available. My peers here do stained glass, jewellery, hand-blown glass and painting. New Brewery Arts also offer many varied art and craft courses and exhibitions in the gallery, and there is a great cafe and a youth hostel attached. It’s all a big change for me and I’m really enjoying being in a dedicated arts and crafts space, getting to know a new town and making some new friends…..

I’ll post some more images as I get settled in and work out how to properly inhabit my new surroundings…..
