The Exhibitionist Hotel

I can't quite believe that I'm writing this, but I have been invited to have an exhibition of my upcycled vintage plates at this fabulous hotel in South Kensington.
As the name suggests, it is just that - home to an eclectic mix of changing exhibitions in their lobby, on their corridors and in the bedrooms.
Exciting and terrifying are the two words that come to mind right now but 'it will be alright on the night' as they say!

The opening of the show coincides with The Kensington and Chelsea Art Weekend and on Sunday 29th July, I will be at the hotel 'in conversation' with the editor of afternyne magazine. It will be from 3-4 and is a free event, but you need to register via Eventbrite here. Please do come along if you can make it!

With a two month exhibition, obviously I wont be there the whole time but if you are planning to go, please let me know and I will try and coincide. 

The address is:
 8-10 Queensberry Place,
South Kensington,
London, SW7 2EA.

Crouch End Festival

This is the first of the outdoor events so fingers crossed for brilliant weather at this great market on the Green outside Hornsey Town Hall!
I'll of course be there come rain or shine but hoping that you might make it too.
It's all part of the week long Crouch End Festival and if last year is anything to go by, it should be fun.

Duckpond Market Highgate

I'm back at the gorgeous Lauderdale House in Highgate for my first event of the year!
I am taking two tables so that I can have both the upcycled vintage plates and tableware on display.
The last Duckpond Market that I was supposed to just before Christmas was just a little scuppered by the snow - having packed the car, we couldn't move it out of a very icy parking space at the bottom of our hill.
Hoping not to have a repeat experience. . .
See you there?

Noel Pop Up Shop

Delighted to have my 'catch of the Day' tableware range in this special Xmas pop up shop, celebrating the work of British artisan designers.

I met Linda Tait, the delightful lady behind the initiative, when she visited my stand at Top Drawer in September and promptly placed an order for the plates.

The store is full of a range of gorgeous gifts and is the key store for Xmas gift wrapping in Covent Garden.

Its on Floral Street - number 17 - in the same street as the likes of Agnes B, Paul Smith, Arket and the new concept store, Kent and Urwin. 

I'm off to explore today. . .

Spotted at Top Drawer Olympia

I am incredibly excited about this - a first for me to be doing a trade show and a brilliant opportunity to share my tableware with the retail world.

And it was wonderful to have been selected to be part of the exclusive area, 'Spotted' - a destination area for new, exciting brands who have never done a trade show before.

As it is a trade show, it is not so easy to get tickets but let me know if you are interested in attending and I will see what I can do!
