Thanks to everyone who stopped by to see us at Home County this weekend! The festival was very good to us and we had a great time. It was wonderful to spend a few days back in my old neighbourhood, and to reconnect with some London folks including former classmates, former teachers, and even my beloved former boss John from For The Art of It gallery, where I used to be a picture framer in another life. We’re already looking forward to being part of the festival again next year.
We’re very pleased and grateful to have been chosen for the festival’s Fresh & First award, given to a craft vendor new to the festival who brings a fresh and creative new approach. We worked hard to make our booth fun and inviting and it was gratifying to have that recognized!
We’re all set up and the weather is gorgeous. We’re here all weekend in beautiful Victoria Park; stop by and see us if you’re in London!
We’re having a good start to our second day at Art in the Park at Windsor’s historic Willistead Manor! If you haven’t made it out to the show yet, you can still catch us here until 5pm. We’re in booth #345, on the Devonshire Road side of the park.
Here are a few photos of our booth setup:
On Wednesday evening we hosted a special class with guest instructor Kat Pasquach of Culture Shock Jewelry. The class was packed and students had a blast sewing up their small pouches and decorating them with beads.
The final exhibition for Up The Mesh Count opened at Artspeak Gallery tonight! If you missed the party, you can still see the work until the 30th.
We gave letterpress demos in the studio during Walkerville Art Walk, and produced these two new 9×12 broadsides!
Our studio member Jenny is here with her amazing prints for sale! And inside the studio I’ll be doing letterpress demos all weekend. Drop by and say hello!
Windsor’s first Open Streets event was wildly successful, and our street was packed with bicycles and pedestrians all morning long! Here are a few photos from the spray and stencil party we presented in partnership with the Arts Council Windsor Region.
Here is balloon lady all finished! She’s part of a series of new prints on view at Artspeak Gallery this week.
This weekend we took part in Events in the Manor, a fun free exhibit of Art in the Park. Here’s our set-up in the dining room of historic Willistead Manor, ready to demonstrate bookbinding for the public:
It’s more fun doing a demo by teaching somebody, so local artist Julie Bell came by to help out and learned a Japanese stab binding:
