Last day in the workshop

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.

The little things that make us

It’s been a little while since we have updated anything on here but it has been lovely in between that time to receive comments on here and emails. It’s not that we haven’t anything to say because we always do but it is that we have been caught up doing many things. Those things will be updated on here shortly so you can see what we are up too.

Working across the community means that we get to share great things and sometimes we are given little treats like colds from the people we work with so we have had a few weeks of work rotation as we have all been through the illness cycle so that means if you came to a workshop expecting Jo you may have met Ella, or when you were expecting Sarah you may have been with Suzanne but that is one thing about the way we are. We all bring our own skills to the jelly party, learn from each other and are all pretty much capable of working together to do the best that we can.

We will add extra pages to this temporary site soon so you can find out a little more about all of us who are here now and information about some of the jellies that have been before, some of who you will recognise from posts below.
