Today was the last day in the workshop before the Easter break – apologies in advance if you try to phone us anytime after today and before Monday. We are fortunate to have a town centre space, given to us by Reading Borough Council in partnership but it also means we have the hours of civil servants.
This is a novelty for us after years of being key holders with doors onto streets and responsibilities for the building and security. We used to just be closed three days of the year, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and Easter Sunday. Now we get to embrace a longer break which probably seems lovely from the outside but sometimes we forget too and want to go to work……….. yep, we love work.
Soon we will be adding a page here which will let you know a little bit more about the jelly team, underneath we are all quite shy about our own work although we find it easy to talk about other artists, other makers, young artists coming to workshops and encouraging them. Did you even know that most of the team are practising and exhibiting artists themselves? You may be amazed by what we all do.
Here is another quick snap from the beginning of the session today – making baby animals – somehow I always forget that end shot when they are done, I must try harder to remember.
