I would like to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderfully healthy and prosperous New Year.
This year has been incredibly exciting for me - with the launch of my new business and website - being involved with some wonderful local arts projects.
Single-handedly creating and delivering not one by two yarnbombs one in Corsham which was videoed watch the film here, and one a few weeks later in Trowbridge. The Corsham Yarnbomb was created to celebrate the opening of The Peacock Arts Trail, which was a huge success, I cannot wait for the next trail. The second yarnbomb was made after some artists approached me and asked me to yarnbomb their town hall as part of an installation for the launch of a visual arts exhibition in the beautiful town hall in Trowbridge - of course, I could not resist the challenge and although I just had days to pull it together – I did and created a showstopper for the town hall and it’s stunning staircase!
I have so many brilliant and hilarious and touching memories from all the wonderful people who come and take part in one of my workshops. Each workshop is designed to produce a piece of art and learn a new skill. However, they are also a place where people come for solace, relaxation, discussion and sharing. I am very proud of each one and each unique piece of craft that is made and the kind and imprtant time we have shared.
I also launched a project on my Facebook page raising money for the Jessie May Trust, a children's hospice. I promised to donate 25p for every like on my Page that I receive in a bid to reach 2000 likes and raise £500 for the trust. This project is ongoing so please continue to like and share this with your friends, colleagues and family.
In 2014 I have so many exciting plans to share with you. There will be more workshops and new crafts and I am always open for new ideas or crafts you are interested in - never hesitate to get in touch and have a chat to me about it.
Have a super Christmas and a wonderful New Year - love Emma xx.
