Dundee to Edinburgh

Earlier on in the week I popped through to Edinburgh to The Spider and The Fly (65 Bread Street). The Spider and The Fly is brought to you by Magpie- a venture to bring art, craft and design talent together. I was really pleased to have my work accepted to go on sale here- its a gorgeous shop stocking a great range including prints, artwork, handmade jewellery, gifts, clothing and accessories. There are also a variety of events taking place here- the next being an exhibition of drawing and sculpture held by Nikki McWilliams - a tribute to the humble teacake on the 7th of September.

The images below show some of the goodies available for sale in The Spider and The Fly.

A little reminder too, that its less than a week to go until n_ilk at the botanics and Dundee Jamboree. It takes place in the Botanic Gardens in Dundee on Saturday the 11th of September, 3.30- 10.30. Tickets are priced £6.

Also for anyone who doesn't know yet, I've set up a little group on facebook for artists and makers in the Fife/Tayside area (and anyone else who's interested) to share events and exhibitions that are going on.

I thought I'd set up the group after a conversation with Lora from Little Badger at last weekends Tea on the Lawn, which was a great event- (I'm good at telling you about events coming up but not always so good at letting you know how they went) I met loads of lovely people and sold some new work. Anyway, back to the conversation- Lora asked how I found out about the event and other events going on in the area- I realised its all pretty much word of mouth (I have Mary-Jane from Kitschnbake to thank for finding out about Tea on the Lawn). I thought it would be good to have a group on facebook where we could post events that are coming up and share whats going on. So far I'm the only one to have posted but I'm hoping it will take off- there are a few members now. If you do join please pop into the discussions section, say hello and leave some links so we can all find each other.
