July has been busy for Gillian and David at Strawberry Glass. Several workshops at the Studio as well as tutoring at the Heritage Skills Centre at Lincoln Castle. Most months we run workshops at one of our regular away venues and in August it will be at the Craft Centre in Alford on Saturday 5th. The venues arrange the bookings but you can always talk to Gillian about the workshop content.
Gillian and Carolyn from the Studios have both been represented at a Lincolnshire Art on the Map exhibition at Gunby Hall for the whole of July, a lovely exhibition space with lots of natural light. Hoping to go back there another year. Coming up at the end of July is our favourite demonstrating engagement of the year at the Sandringham Flower Show. We take part in the Traditional Crafts demonstrating tent as one of a number of interesting crafts - well worth putting in the diary as a good day out, always the last Wednesday of the month.
In August we will be running a stained glass event for a special birthday celebration. Always great fun for a party gathering and great for bringing the generations together!
A fascinating Glass Painting day at York has inspired Gillian to think about incorporating that technique into stained glass work - the materials are on order!
