Christmas Crafts

I am enjoying a Christmas break – making Lego “collage” with my nephew on Christmas day, then today, inspired by a gift of some beautiful handspun wool from Shetland (thank you, Julia), I picked up the Shetland knitting pattern which I had abandoned months ago. It is a traditional Shetland cockleshell pattern and is fairly complicated to do – I have no idea how on earth women used to knit like this while hauling fish (rather than waiting for gallery visitors) – maybe that’s the benchmark of a true crafts person! It is lovely to get back to knitting, quite a contrast to glass – something I have in mind to explore more fully some day…

Xmas Decorations!


I have been busy making Christmas decorations which are for sale at my gallery and at the Newport Collective Gallery in Pembrokeshire.

I will be running a day of glass decoration making in my studio in Maenclochog on Saturday 11th December when you can have the chance to drop in and make your own decoration.

Everyone is welcome. Children under 11 must be accompanied by an adult.
