This Blog will be a window into the inspirations of my week that I think you may like to share too. It will have top tips that I have discovered, bite size art and craft that you can try out and samples of projects I am working on. Aswell as ideas for workshops you and your friends can come and do with me if you want a day or weekend in Westport.
