After a busy fair last Monday I gave myself Friday off to go and visit some of the studios opened to the public as part of the Crossing Borders Open Studios Weekend. It was gloriously sunny and we had a fabulous day meeting some brilliant people and enjoying their wonderful work. R has written about it here and I have to admit I was with him in the studio envy! Thank you to everyone who welcomed us in especially to jeweller Anne Collin and painter and sculptor Gill Walton.
The rest of the week has been spent making new pieces and preparing for the next fair which was at the Chain Bridge Honey Farm on Sunday. Preparing did include going to the beach up at Belhaven Bay for a picnic and some fresh air where I found a beast of a piece of driftwood to use on my stall.
It was a good day and hopefully lots of money will have been raised for the Rotary Club's chosen charities. My next booked fair is November the 6th and I'm deciding over a few others in the run up to Christmas. Hopefully there will be news of more jewellery making workshops in Berwick upon Tweed soon! If you are interested in attending a workshop do comment or drop me an email and I'll keep you updated on dates, times and locations.
