Hello Again!

Hello again everyone, and I hope the New Year has been good to you all so far.

The Christmas period was a good time for us business wise, with our sales at the Christmas Fair at Harold Hillier Gardens far exceeding our expectations.  Our little glass Christmas decorations were the hit of the year I think!!!!! After the first weekend we had to rush back to the studio and make more to fill up our display ready for the following weekend.

The Gift Card idea went down well and we have sold several courses and workshops through that scheme.  So there are people now coming to our courses because someone was thoughtful enough to give them this as a Christmas or Birthday gift.

Anyway, January is upon us and we have a whole new year to fill.  Our glass and pottery classes are going well, and it's time to think about designing new stock for our outlets as well as finding more outlets to sell our work.

Hopefully this year we will be taking part in more fine art exhibitions with our own individual work.  Chris with her mixed media pieces, and me with my ceramics.  We are definitely taking part in the Havant Arts Trail this year with our fellow artists in Group AF, and there is a possibility that Group AF will also be holding an exhibition at The Spring Arts Centre in Havant. So busy times ahead.

I am honoured to have had my raku fired wall piece 'Wasteland, used as a header on the newsletter of Portmouth Genealogy ( and would recommend this site to anyone researching their family history.

Well, belated Happy New Year to you all.
