The Willowman Festival

Back from Willowman Festival in North Yorkshire..lovely lovely times! We ran childrens workshops for Electric Juice in Susan's new tent - it was put to the test in the elements, the wild wind and rain. We didn't blow away, hurray!

Activities included dreamcatchers made from wool and willow, tutu skirts, mini comics and lots of hula hooping! I sold my jewellery from a rug, we met some great people and had a good dance to the bands in the evenings. Can't wait for more festivals!

Green Festival, Newcastle upon Tyne, England

Our local community green festival takes place in the local park and is run by volunteers.

For the last 17 years, the festival has showcased local talent, crafts people, musicians and performers.

We all attended last weekend. My partner Ian performed in two of his bands, they were awesome! Eppie and Andy ran the hungry elephant vegan cafe, nathan and his 4 year old son performed some nail biting epic moments of street performance, susan and myself ran a short hula hoop workshop. The whole thing was such good fun!

I feel ready to take on the next few weeks! Really need to get my head down and work hard at making lots of jewellery before the festival season really kicks off!

It's been a while..

Wow, thought I had deleted my blogger account a long while ago. Turns out I hadn't!

When I returned to set up a new one...I found the old one. Left standing silently and unloved.

So, appologies for being away so long! I've been using tumblr (

So far, this year has been so exciting! Had my work feature in Vogue Magazine which has certainly raised my profile as an artist. Looking forward to a summer of festivals and great markets.

I'll be back!
