A creative time was had by all at the Open Studios event at St Nicks on Saturday 24th March. Although the sun was slower to emerge than we'd hoped, the artworks looked great, and lots of kids enjoyed the opportunity to make a decorated wheel of their own.

I was there showing off my wares, and doing a little bit of production. Here, I'm working on weaving an inner tube bag:


We were also 'helped' throughout the day by a curious local feline. Here, I show some work to artist Belinda, behind my 'cat-a-log'...


If you missed it this week, you've still got time to drop in on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st.
