It’s Hey Clay this weekend! A nationwide scheme organised by the Crafts Council to get folks started with the rather addictive medium of clay… Lovely to see the Crafts Council using the image of my Curious Curiosities tiger jars as inspiration too 🙂
Today is the official launch of the Crafts Council maker directory. I have a maker profile at the following link. http://www.craftscouncil.org.uk/directory/maker/karen-thompson/
I have some of my artworks going into the Crafts Council collections. A GOVESHY Bust for the main collection and a Porcelain Sandwich for the handling collection. Great News!
August 21st sees the nationwide release of the Art Party film by Tim Newton and Bob & Roberta Smith. This was shot at the Art Party Conference last November. I’m really looking forward to seeing it!! GOVESHY even made it into the official trailer! Bonus! Art Party from Tim Newton on Vimeo.
The Crafts Council very kindly covered me on their #todayimmaking feature. Thanks guys. Today I’m making Porcelain Sandwiches for York Curiouser, an upcoming exhibition which will see 300 of these sandwiches ‘left’ around York.
