Printmakers at Coldstream Gallery

Currently showing at Coldstream Gallery is a delightful Printmakers Exhibition. So much beautiful work and I have been thoroughly enchanted by Freya Cumming's screenprints

 and Kevin Peden's St Abbs prints. You can see Kevin and St Abbs in this lovely video below!

Learn How to Make Jewellery in the Scottish Borders

Good afternoon!

After a summer of fun jewellery making workshops my last series of 2013 are about to start.

I can hardly believe it's October already!



If you are based in the Scottish Borders or Northumberland and would be interested in learning how to make jewellery I will be teaching a seven week evening course at Allanbank Arts commencing on Wednesday 23rd October and finishing on Wednesday 4th December.

Each session starts at 7pm and finishes at 9.30pm.


You will learn about the main components and techniques in bead and wire jewellery making allowing you to resolve your own designs from initial inspirations to finished pieces. The later sessions will also include working with sheet metal.

You can sign up for the whole course for £125 (£115 if you book and pay before Wednesday 16th October) or you can pay £20 per session if you can't make them all.

I will be posting the schedule next week with an outline of what will be happening each week.

To book your place you can email info@allanbankarts.co.uk
or phone Gill on 07702811374 or Liz on 01890 818459 / 07899903429

Crossing Borders Art Trail 2013

A massive thank you to all who came out to Allanbank Arts to visit, purchase and join in on the Crossing Borders Art Trail! We had a fabulous weekend meeting you all!







For more photos pop on over to my facebook page.

I had a particularly fun time with those who came along for taster jewellery making workshops and was delighted that one participant thanked me and said that she was so happy she could now mend her own broken bits of jewellery, exactly! 

Tomorrow, I will be teaching a one day workshop over at Allanbank Arts and later this month sees the start of a jewellery making evening course: from Wednesday 23rd October for 7 weeks, 7.30pm - 9.30pm. Email me on laurajjohnson@btinternet.com if you would like further information or to book your place.
