Create your own Sculpture

Here is the result of Nigel's day in the frailloop studio. He started the day with an idea, an envelope with a sketch on the back and an armful of metal. He ended the day with the completed sculpture in the boot of the car, all ready to be sited in his garden.

If you would like to create you own sculpture then give Gavin a call.

Excite, Inspire, Engage Erewash

This two year project is coming to at end with a couple of exhibitions, the first is at our rEvive store in Ilkeston. Most enjoyable opening on Friday and my first shift on Saturday. My little part was the Metal Age. Seeing the pieces that Dawn and I created with the students, well backed and mounted on the gallery wall was brilliant.

Sometimes I want to be a jeweler!

The completed grasshopper required serious help to reach its site on the festival field. The two of us managed, with some difficulty, to carry the beastie out of the barn so the loader could pick it up.

Art in the Pen, Skipton

Back from a busy weekend at the Skipton event. Always a good event with a nice atmosphere, and nice folk all round. Weather was 'interesting' but the real heavy rain came during the day - and we stayed mostly dry on a quick walk out to Malham Cove during the evening.

Always nice to bring less back than I took, but why can I never pack the van as well to return?
