Hi Sarah, thankyou for the kind comments, I havn't been on Crafthouse for a litle while, it is very encouraging, and motivating! Your works are very interesting, I love the fluidity. I would love to come to the opening of your show at Guyomarc'h- I live about 15 mins walk away! I have a very busy April planned, what are the dates? Kate.
I would love, love, love that. We will have to plan it for September since I'll be gone all summer teaching at an arts camp where my kids go. In the meantime, I'll post some pictures on my blog of the set up I'm using to work in my room, since the evenings are a bit too cool in my indoor/outdoor studio at camp. It's all so compact, it'll be a fun challenge.

I am happy to share with all of you more images of wonderful brooches from artists around the word. I had so many submissions on my first call that I had to create a second part exhibition. This exhibition focuses on a side of the brooch we usually do not pay much attention to: the back side. Our first look is naturally always trained at the front, but when we do take the time to look at the back of a brooch, it will oftentimes reveal a surprising aspect for us, a delightful little secret. With…See More
As many of you know, SNAG has undergone a number of changes in the past year. There is a new executive director, new president, new conference producer and many new board members. All of these changes have made the upcoming Minneapolis conference one of the more challenging to produce. Administrative changes are not the only ones taking place for this year’s conference. I will talk more about some of these changes in future posts, but for now will focus on the changes that I have been involved…See More
