Hello friends and customers,
I hope you are keeping warm now the chillier weather has arrived, we witnessed huge snow flakes falling last week … through a backdrop of autumn leaves … so unusual, 10 minutes of freak icy weather, cause for great excitement!

Since my last newsletter I've completed a big floral commission and delivered it - thanks to Simon and Paula, I've loved creating it for them, a few of you saw it in it's early stages during h.Art week, I have one more small one to create then will be looking for more.

I've also been out to Portugal for the 4th batik and birdwatching holiday, this time with another fabulous group - you know who you are, thank you for braving a new art form and being such fun! Dates for next years trips are further down the page, so it's time to think about booking you and your friend a treat trip for 2019 I'm offering an EARLYBIRD DISCOUNT if you book before 31st December.
Online Exhibitions Starts 4th November
I'm also running my first online exhibition, you are personally invited to the viewing, so get comfy from your sofa with a chilled glass of wine and enjoy! You will need 'follow me' on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter to view it! There will be a different batik image posted every 2 days for the next few months with an opportunity to view, read a little more and comment on work. Please use the opportunity to 'comment', 'like' the work (assuming you do of course!) and 'share' with friends as this all helps to spread the word for me. There might even be a few Christmas ideas in there!

This Autumn I'll be teaching you screen printing and mono printing so you can hand print your own tea towels, bags and Christmas cards as well as creating your own batiks.
"Did I have the best day ever at M's workshop? Yes I did! A feast of colour and creativity, and every time I got stuck M gently and inspiringly got me unstuck so I could finish my masterpiece! It's up on my wall, I smile every time I look at it!" Gabi.

Screen printing costs £90 and is limited to 3 places All you need is lunch and a sense of creative adventure! Book now or buy a voucher for a friend.
Portugal Dates 2019 - JUNE 8-15th & OCTOBER 5th-12th
Portugal Workshop Holiday Information
and New dates for Portugal Holiday next year
October's holiday was a great success with an amazing group and perfect sunny weather - daily swimming and paddling in the lake was enjoyed by everybody. There were a mix of couples and single aspiring batikers.

June's course will run alongside a group of printmakers led by best friend Lucy Gell, we might even develop the week to incorporate both mediums depending on what our customers want!

OCTOBER 5th-12th course will incorporate optional daily yoga sessions instead of the Birding, with newly qualified Yoga teacher Sally Padget. The Shala ( yoga deck) has a view of the lake and overlooks the gardens, quiet and tranquil, perfect for mindfulness and morning stretches.

The dates are June 8th - 15th 2019 and OCTOBER 5th-12th 2019 numbers limited to 8 on each. Please contact me if you need any more information and to book a place.

EARLYBIRD DISCOUNT if you book before 31st December.
