Just a quick thanks to all who came along to the Grove Cafe on Sunday. It was a great atmosphere with everyone hanging out in the cafe and the surrounding studios.
Cakes went down well, as always, and Viv managed some massages in a quiet corner
The three open studios really impressed people who didn't know that Hatherley Mews held so much talent, and the kids made the most of the
drawing table while mums dads and grown ups shopped around for jewellery, cards, bags, bath products, prints and kids clothes....
Here's us appearing in the selvedge newsletter, about the event.....

Sarah Hawkins, a local photographer, was specialising in 'Photograms', images created by placing objects, found in her garden, onto photographic paper and exposing it to light. This means that each one is unique, never to be created in the same way twice. An exhibition of these works was also displayed as part of the Leytonstone Art Trail and at the Changing Rooms Gallery in Lloyd Park.
Katie Gammie of Gammie Bags was selling a great little array of cushions and bangles as well as her trademark bags. Newly graduated, she is currently working on her own designs for fabric which she then hopes to turn into her crafty creations.
So as well as familiar faces at the designer markets you will often see new and other inspirational stalls propping up.
Wendy has a close relationship with the natural world, trees, birds, astrology, mythology and enviromental issues which is often evident in her work. Using photography, painting and found materials to express an understanding of the world as alive and interconnected.Her creations are often little creations of serenity.

Girl Made Good is a collection of rather glamarous necklaces and silk scarves. Her button necklaces are a great explosion of colour. I dont know where she manages to find such amazing and quirky buttons! There is a great vintage essence to her work which is reminiscent of the 50's style.
