The New Year got off to a busy start here with preparations being made for my first event of the year with Just Makers at RHS Gardens Harlow Carr in Harrogate. Spring really is a great time of year to visit the gardens when all the Spring bulbs are emerging and the timing couldn't be better with some fantastic exhibitions of work on show from some very talented makers, all very ably overseen by the brilliant Deborah de Brunner. Deborah has been working hard to furnish the Bath House ready for all our work and we're all agreed that it looks fantastic!
The first event is now underway and you have until 22nd February to see it. It's entitled 'Let's Get Creative' and, as well as showcasing makers' work, there will a number of kits available for you to purchase and maybe have a go at some crafts yourself!
On 24th February, a new exhibition begins with 'Handbags and Gladrags' - aimed at ladies and perfect for Mother's Day gifts. What better way to celebrate Mother's Day by taking Mum to RHS Harlow Carr for the day, taking in the Spring flowers, perusing all the gorgeous gifts at The Bath House and maybe even stopping for a cuppa and a slice of cake at Betty's Tea Rooms! Of course, I'm delighted to say my jewellery will be on display at this event and I'm looking forward to going in and helping out on 6th March, so do pop in and say hello!
