I am not doing any Christmas shows this year but will be loading up Etsy with some new makes. These will be the very popular Christmas gift of a Pottery Apron for creative friends and relatives. Great for pottery class, workshops and studio space. Anyone wearing an AliMac apron will feel ready to make and create!
September has had AliMacDesignsUk at the famous Wirksworth Festival. What a crackin' event!
It is so positive to meet such creative people and share the excitement about textiles, ceramics, glass and all things creative! wirksworthfestival.co.uk
That was followed by the warm and friendly Sheffield Ceramics Festival in Meersbrook Walled Garden, Sheffield. A great gathering of regional talented potters in the unique surroundings of the walled garden run by volunteers. www.meersbrookpark.co.uk/walled-garden/ I just love this place: Sheffield at its best with a hint of retro romance.
Sunshine! I am photographing my recent makes in the glorious sunshine to bring out the vibrant colour and design of these lovely aprons. They just pop with energy! These will be on sale at the www.earthandfire.co.uk/ Earth and Fire Ceramic Festival at the Harley Gallery, Welbeck, North Nottinghamshire over 3 days, 21st to 23rd June this year.
I have been making some new gardening aprons using either waterproof backing or linen and of course, the quirky and vibrant African prints. These will be £20 and an ideal summer present.
These are on sale through my Etsy shop www.etsy.com/uk/shop/AliMacDesignsUK
This new year has brought great joy, welcoming my first grandson into the world. Here he is only 3 weeks old visiting the legendary Grindleford Cafe, Derbyshire. I think he is eyeing up the enormous chip butty and pint of tea I've got lined up.
I've been busy making new stock!
Put 24th November in your diary for the Sheffield MILLENNIUM GALLERY Christmas Craft Market.
I'll be there with a range of dazzling fabrics and prices range from £23 to £45.
Then on 1st, 2nd December AliMacDesigns aprons will be at the Sheffield Etsy Made Local event in the superb CUTLERS' HALL which is an historic treat in itself!
And if you are not lucky enough to be nearby then have a look on my SHOP and it will take you to my latest Etsy stock. Best wishes to you, Alison.xx
I really think so! Here we go with Japanese style aprons!
They are practical, easy to wear and light up any place you want to be - kitchen, workshop or garden! So get over to my Etsy page to check out the latest!
The sun shone and we had a wonderful time meeting great potters and so many nice people who share an interest in all things pottery! And we sold AliMac aprons to such a range of people for all their creative endeavours. Britain is alive with creative energy.
And a big thank you to my lovely Mac for all his help, support and enthusiasm! We had 3 great days.
Next events are at Wardlow Mires in Derbyshire, www.potsandfood.co.uk 8th and 9th September and then at the Sheffield Ceramics Festival on 22nd and 23rd September in the Meersbrook Walled Garden, Sheffield.www.sheffieldceramicsfestival.com/
Trying out a more swinging style: Japanese cross back aprons. One size fits all!
Comfortable and easy to wear with 2 big side pockets for all those essentials or just looking cool.
More fabrics will be coming on line so visit my Etsy shop.
They will be on sale at www.earthandfire.co.uk/ the International Ceramics Fair at Welbeck, Nottinghamshire on 22nd to 24th June 2018.
