Where next for artists in the Pop Up Art and Craft Sale, Macclesfield

Porcelain Pots by Ruth Robinson
Well, it was cold outside but cosy in the studio over the weekend.  Many thanks to all of you who dropped by to enjoy the art and craft on offer.   A great time was had by all; I loved meeting old friends and making new, and I know that you enjoyed the variety and quality of stuff on show.

If you missed out (I know some of you were defeated by the weather), don't panic. I'm thinking about holding a similar event in May to coincide with a nationwide campaign to promote fine crafts and design during the month of May.  Watch this space, I'll let you know......

Many thanks to the participating artists: Painter and printmaker Ralph McGaul; glass artist Louise Watson;  felt-maker and woodturner Jane Cummins; printmaker Jane Osmond; ceramicist Ruth Robinson and Cumbrian artist Jude Stoll.   

Ralph McGaul, Birdcage
What next?  If you missed out on the weekend you still have a chance to see work by Ralph McGaul at Sunderland Street Open Studios next weekend, the 11th and 12th December.  He'll be showing his painting and prints alongside the work of Melanie Alexandrou and Patrick Cody at Unit 8, 59-61 Sunderland Street, Macclesfield, Cheshire 01625 617864.

Lots of you also wanted to know where to buy Ruth Robinson's lovely ceramic buttons and beads, and I can now let you know that you can get them on her online shop on etsy where they all all available for sale.  Happy shopping!

Louise Watson is taking her wonderful glass jewellery to an event run by Colne Valley artists, 'Art at Christmas'. They will be at the Rose & Crown Pub, Cop Hill, Slaithwaite, HD7 5XA next Saturday 11th December. A great day out!  For more details see this website

And finally, Jane Cummins and Victoria Scholes will sharing a stall at Treacle Market on Saturday 18th December (yes, Saturday, not Sunday - the market will run on both days, and will be different each day). 10am to 3.30pm.  A great place for last minute gifts!
