Volcano Scetch

I'll be showing new volcanic inspired jewellery at 'Creative Reactions' a science meets art exhibition of 50 local artists. Watch out for Fire Mountains and Rivers of Lava jewellery!

Cambridge Creative Network has paired me up with Volcanologist Dr Clive Oppenheimer - one of 400 scientists heading to pubs around the world to talk about their work in May during the 'Pint of Science' festival.

Dr Oppenhiemer's lecture entitled 'A pint of lava and a packet of pumice, please' will be at The Boathouse on May 19th, where I'll also show my new work. Details here: pintofscience.co.uk/event/into-the-darkness/

Tickets to for all other lectures in Cambridge are available here: pintofscience.co.uk/events/cambridge/

  • Pop-up Market at the Round Church
    Saturday 28th Feb 2015 11-5pm
    The Round Church, Bridge Street, Cambridge CB2 1UB

This stunning 11th Century landmark is hosting a one-off market. There'll be a mixture of handmade craft & artwork as well as vintage clothes & antiques all from a group of local Etsy sellers - check out their twitter feed here.

There will be a £2 entry fee (the standard entrance fee to the building that goes directly to the upkeep of this 900 year old church). Shoppers will be invited to pull up a pew given a free tea or coffee from a pop up vintage tea shop.

 

It's such an stunning iconic building I couldn't resist the urge to make some Round Church inspired pieces!

 

Join us for some wildlife-themed Christmas shopping at the BCN Wildlife Trust's open day at the Manor House in Cambourne (10miles West of Cambridge). They're opening their office to meet the locals and raise funds. 

There will also be prints by Carry Akroyd (now famous for illustrating for Radio 4's Tweet of the Day); Beautiful mugs by Mark Grecko along with illustrated goods by Katie King & Mike Langham and Indigo Scarves by my Mum (Clarissa Cochran).

My designs are often inspired by the Fulbourn Fen which is managed by the Trust so I really appreciated the work they do. I'll have some of my new etched pieces made with photos of the nature reserve. 10% of all proceeds will go to the Trust. 

 

 

 

 

  • Cambridge Christmas 14
    Monday 24th November 2014. Midday - 8.30pm 
    The Unitarian Church Hall, Victoria Street, off Emmanual Road, Cambridge, CB1 1JW

This is the best and most friendly Winter Craft show in Cambridge. I was very happy to be asked to join Cambridge Christmas again this year. It's a really friendly group of talented designers. People often comment on the lovely atmosphere of this special one day event. Check out the Twitter or Facebook feeds for glimpses of the kind of work that will be available.

 

This show in a beautiful 16th century barn just off the A14 east of Bury St Edmunds (30mins drive from Cambridge) is an event I've been wanting to take part in for years. I visited 2 years ago and was very impressed by the high quality of crafts on show and the happy crowds of visitors - I'm really looking forward to this show!

The Women of the World Festival (part of Cambridge University Festival of Ideas) is a day to celebrate the achievements of women and girls. Talks and debates on topics ranging from fashion and feminism, quotas, domestic violence, race, sex, food, women bishops and more as well as a Cabaret in the evening. Along side all the events of the day will be a market with stalls run by awareness raising groups, charities and a range of local businesses - including me!
