Things I still love: well designed bits of engineering, making simple shapes into complex forms, frosted silver and the warmth of polished gold, attention to detail, working in silver, necklaces of lustrous pearls, making brooches, and a good play on the radio.
What to expect: A cheery welcome as always! This is my opportunity to show comprehensive collections of work, illustrations of recent special commissions, samples of techniques, tools and work in progress at a replica of my work space. Basically, I will show how I do what I do.
Directions: I will be at Amanda’s studio just for this weekend. It is in the centre of Corsock (A712 Balmaclellan/New Galloway to Crocketford), opposite the bus stop and phone box.
Accessibility: Studio is accessible from street level, as is small toilet.
Recommendation: Knowetop Lochs, a lovely SWT (4) small reserve (OS NX706786, Landranger 84). 4 miles west of Corsock on A712. Postcode DG7 3EA.
