After a hectic weekend at the Festival of Thrift, I thought I would share a more relaxed experience from earlier this month. Here is my two week Artist Residency at the Durham Dales Centre in pictures.

Welcome to part 2 of my blog about my demonstration day at Crafters Companion. Sorry it has taken so long to post but I have been crazy busy the last few weeks. In the first part of my blog, I covered the preparation I carried out before the day. In this part I will give a summary of the demo day itself.
So, after a good deal of preparation spread over a couple of months, the day of the demonstrations finally arrived. Everything for the demos plus examples and kits were loaded into the car and we were off. I am lucky that my other half, Tom, is happy to come along to my events and help with setting up.

Last Saturday I did my first demonstration day at Crafters Companion's flagship store in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham. I had a great day and thought I would share my experiences with you in my blog. However, once I started writing about the lead up to the day I realised that the preparation for such an event is as important, and certainly takes up more time, than the event itself. So I have split the blog into two - Preparation for the day and The Day itself.
Carry on reading to hear about all the preparation needed to run an hour and a half demonstration.
