The Ink, Paint, Stitch Exhibition – August 2011 – Creative Quarter, Folkstone, Kent – part of their triennual fringe exhibitions….Jereme and I had a great time again exhibiting in the Creative Quarter and meeting new people and friends from our previous exhibition. Thankyou everyone who visited, bought, helped and supported…Poppy, my parents ( and their friends who were gently! encourged to buy artworks ), Josie and Roger, Theresa ( great to see you again! thankyou for your purchases and all the encouragement), Shane ( great to finially meet you properly – hope the camper van adventure was blissfully quirky – huge smile to you, thanks for being a friendly face! ), and Charlotte Watkinson ( who has bought several of my pieces in the past, but whom i had never met before…)thankyou for visiting and taking away Hook – it was really great to finially meet you! And to little Ruby who has a wonderful name and loves grizzly bears – a big smile – and everyone else …..thankyou!
Our initial venue … in Tontine street …
I included the Ruby Trinket necklaces…which were a huge success and very popular, especially the pendants which displayed my latest ink art.
also made some necklaces of Jereme’s work…
Poppy exhibited her photos…which people were very impressed with…she sold all three!
she also made hair slides called poppies especially for the exhibition, which almost all sold!
some of Jereme’s artwork from the exhibition
our next venue in The Old High Street, Creative Quarter, Folkstone…you can just make out my dad being busy helping us set up during our mad dash from the first venue to the better situated one in the Old High Street …it only took a few hours to take everything down and set it all back up again….exhausting! Sorry to everyone who walked all the way up Tontine Street looking for us…we moved after two days when a better exhibtion space became available in a more preferable situation…I hope the redirections worked and you found us!
