I have attended a couple of shows or fairs which is just really attempting to find the best venues for me as an artist. It is also 'networking' which is important and a source of information as I am relatively new on the scene.
The real progress this year is the 'library' I have built in 2 box files of my own designs and structures with appropriate samples. It is therefore so much easier to find the right design for the current piece of work with the related inspiration.
I am embarking on a 'prototype' unstructured jacket in the new year. One of the proposed services I could offer is a length of cloth with a suggested end project for the customer if they know of a dressmaker or are indeed one themselves.
I also intend to weave art pieces for framing. I have designs using the extra weft technique which would lend themselves beautifully to this process.
Happy Christmas and A Happy New Year
