Thank you to everyone who came and saw me and my work over the weekend. It was nice to see you all - and hear those compliments! On to Patchings Festival next!

Derbyshire Open Arts

Will I've still got to do a few things done in the morning before I can claim to be ready, but it is the chance to see a real artists studio. And mine is more real than most! On the plus side I now have warm water to wask my hands, with tiled splash back and mirror (so I'll know when I'm about to go out with a dirty face!
I'll be open 11 til 5. If everyone visits the studios in order it'll be while before folk get to number 150.

Derby Open Arts Trail

Getting the studio ready for this event that runs over the Bank Holiday weekend. Hopefully I'll get lots of visitors that really want to see a metalwork studio in the raw! It's a bit like revision for an exam - you write lists of jobs to do and draw a timetable planning out how do them. And then you try to cram it all in at the last minute.
At the moment thats not quite true. I have boxed in some of the water pipes. And I'm thinking very hard about ordering a water heater - which I plan to fix shortly after delivery...
Open on 28, 29 and 30 May, from 10 to 4 (later if busy). Satnav to DE7 5HX will get you there.

Need to work out a better way to get the photos up on line, but here is a little something to be getting on with.
