Black Brighton Market : The Launch

In the run-up to the day, I was most panicked about not being panicked. I had the application deadline so early, that I knew what all the sellers needed and all their information so my planning and all the information I needed was collected and at my fingertips. The venue was also sorted with enoughContinue reading “Black Brighton Market : The Launch”

Black Brighton Market; Where it began & Where it is now.

Black Brighton Market has been something I have been working on in my mind for a good few years now, It was inspired from a previous project of mine which, financially and planning wise, was a lot simpler. When I initially came up with the idea of BBM I kept it quiet for a while,Continue reading “Black Brighton Market; Where it began & Where it is now.”

Movement modelling

This week I did my first life model class where, unlike the extreme stillness I have to adopt at work, I had to move!

Create & Drink – Tie Dye

It was a bit of a head-scratcher thinking of what to do for the second Create & Drink 2022. As much as materials like oil paints, acrylics, watercolours, colour pens and pencil are all very different in their result, I wanted each event to be so different from the last, that I wasn’t constantly buyingContinue reading “Create & Drink – Tie Dye”

Create and Drink – The Comeback!

If you’ve been following my extensive events and workshops, you will know, that before lockdown, I was running an arts and crafts class for adults called Create and Drink – the adult part being that I served bottomless wine. Each month I would do a different medium of art, usually themed to a celebration duringContinue reading “Create and Drink – The Comeback!”

Pottery with air-drying clay – Tips and Tricks

You might have seen on my earlier post that I’ve been delving into trying new crafts. After making my macrame plant hangers, I realised that a lot of my plants are in pots that drain excess water. I wanted to keep it simple and not have to fight my plants out their hangers every timeContinue reading “Pottery with air-drying clay – Tips and Tricks”
