I work in precious metals. I find weaving tiny stitches in silver thread absorbing, and working in gold is a delight. Making rings, articulated brooches and well-balanced necklaces is satisfying and fun, but ultimately the results must be unique, functional, comfortable and well-finished.
What to expect: A cheery 18th Spring Fling welcome! There’ll be comprehensive collections of my work in sparkly cabinets, a replica of my bench with work-in-progress, tools of the trade, samples, illustrations of special commissions and, if there’s a lull, I may even be working.
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.
Accessibility: Accessible from street level, as is small toilet.
Recommendation: Designs Gallery, 179 King Street, Castle Douglas, DG7 1DZ – Good coffee, great food and a garden.
