Wednesday…with a Weekend Workshop

March 22, 2017

Filed Under : Arrangements - colour - Cornwall - Spring - texture - trips - workshops

This weekend I hosted a bespoke workshop in Cornwall and made sure I packed in as much creative inspiration into 2 days as I could.

I wanted to highlight how lots of different elements influence my table compositions; texture, colour, atmosphere and weather, as well as sharing some of my favourite places in the South of Cornwall.

We took in texture in Newlyn,  Mousehole and Tremenheere, colours in Penzance and nearby daffodil fields, and atmosphere in a local pub and The Leach Pottery and also managed to find time to create some compositions.

Below is a visual journey of our weekend…

Thursday…with a Yorkshire re-cap

Filed Under : Arrangements - colour - trips - Winter

This Half Term my son and my mum decided they wanted to watch films together ( as well as a couple of ‘Midsommer Murder’s’ I expect if my mum had anything to do with it!! ) for 3 days at her house in Warwickshire, which meant I was able to sneak off to Yorkshire to visit my cousin Rachel @welliesandlove … ( well we’re sort of cousins;, her Grandmother and my Grandfather were an item for years! )

Rachel’s mother sadly passed away last year which meant she has suddenly inherited her Grandmother’s boxes of vintage threads, costume jewellery and old magazines which I helped her rummage through, and we spent hours into the night looking at it and arranging it  just for the sake of it…

I also became obsessed by Rachel’s windows…particularly the round ones and now have them on my bucket list for the perfect home!

I love driving North to see friends and Yorkshire is probably my favourite part of the UK and I was able to visit a couple of other friend’s too as well as meet up with Sara Tasker from Me and Orla ( instagram @me_and_orla ) to chat about all things creative and Instagrammy for her new podcast; Hashtag Authentic, which you can listen to HERE

So, here follows my visual re-cap of a lovely few days away…
( above is Rachel’s Grandmother Louise, and both of us below with our mums and Louise circa 1986! ) ( I amused 2 small elves just before their tea time by getting them to collect items and toys in their favourite colours so I could create eye-spy images for them…) ( magazine pages from 1948…imagine what instagram lifestyle images would have looked like then! ) domestic foraging for white things with Sara Tasker after we’d recorded the podcast muted tones were replaced that evening with wine and multi coloured thread action… …which was still there in the morning! I got home to Brighton last night and this morning was inspired by my trip; Sara’s white ceramics, Rachel’s boxes of treasured bits and as always telephone boxes…
