Devon Guild's new craft shop at Cockington Court OPENING

July 21st is the opening of the Devon Guild's new craft shop in Cockington Court.

Cockington Court has had funding, allowing them to build great, new studios. One of these studios has been taken over by the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, where they will be selling work by some of their 200 or more members. I am going to be lucky enough to be working here. It's a really exciting time and we hope that everyone will visit and enjoy the rest of the lovely Cockington Village.

I shall be featuring some of the amazing artist members here so keep your eyes peeled!

Hope to see you there!

A bird after my own heart! - The Bowerbird

Devon artist Jane Perkins describes herself as a "re-maker". She uses found objects to produce works of art and jewellery.

On her website she describes the bowerbird...

"The bowerbird from Australia builds a bower to attract mates... ...around which he places a variety of objects he has collected... ...In the case of the blue-black Satin Bowerbird, the particular attraction is to all things blue, from plastic drinking straws to clothes pegs and toothbrushes... ...The bird spends hours carefully sorting and arranging his collection, with each object in a specific place"
