The weather seems to have settled into a calm sunny phase and we have had both morning coffee and lunch sitting on the terrace, stripped down to t-shirts and listening to birdsong. We did manage to fit some work in between!

It’s a good job we did – on Wednesday and Thursday this week we will be helping to put up my Exhibition, ‘Textiles in Transition’ in the Main Gallery at Oriel Ynys Mon (The Anglesey Gallery) in Llangefni: the opening is on Saturday 25th April between 12:00 and 14:00.

I’ll also be teaching two workshops in the gallery:
‘Folded Paper Applique’ on Tuesday 12th May 10:00 – 16:00
‘Notan’ on Monday 1st June 10:00 – 16:00.

The exhibition runs from 25th April until 7th June. If you’re on Anglesey please call in at the Oriel to see my work – it also has a gallery dedicated to Sir Kyffin Williams paintings and drawings, a history gallery which is very child friendly and a cafe. We’re very proud of Oriel Ynys Mon on Anglesey.

Beaumaris has an annual Festival which this year falls between 19th and 25th of May: it is very well renowned and concentrates on music with an international flavour, but also includes a craft fair, wood turning, poetry readings, lectures and an exhibition of art.

Beaumaris is such a beautiful little town, with its medieval castle, Victorian pier, historic buildings and lots of places to eat: the Festival is at home in these pleasant surroundings. Look for www.beaumaris
