COWSLIP WORKSHOPS AND JULIE ARKELL
Linda and I have been at Cowslip Workshops again for the last three days. We were there with our usual travelling shop plus a lot of different things. Jo had told us that Julie Arkell was going to be there at the same time teaching. What a treat this turned out to be. I knew all about her work but had never met her and we were looking forward to being at Cowslip at the same time. The photographs show some of Julie's work and the type of thing she was going to be teaching.
She uses childrens vintage knitted clothes as her display medium and her whimsical jewellery and adornments looked fabulous. The little boy's green trouser suit she bought from me. I had had it for a long time, waiting for the right home and I was thrilled Julie had it as it goes so well with everything else she has.
We had a lovely time all together with her and her students for supper on Saturday evening and the the ladies were good customers too.! Thank you ladies, very much and hope to see you all again some time.
