Bobby Britnell and Ruth Issett at the Knitting and Stitching Shows


Yes it is nearly that time of year again and this year Ruth Issett and I will be exhibiting at these shows, in London, Dublin and Harrogate.  So we have been busy creating new works for sale, having cards printed, arranging our new ‘Working Together’ Brochure for 2014, packing up kits for workshops and ordering books for our book launch. 
Now there lies a story with Ruth’s new book:
The news a couple of weeks ago was that a shipment from China which included Ruth’s new books was in big trouble in the UK port, as the ship had experienced a fire!!!!!!
Things were not looking good until a few days ago, so fingers crossed as it seems that Ruth may still be in luck.
SO PLEASE, PLEASE do join us at our joint book launch on Thursday evening at Ally Pally, when you will have the chance to speak to us both, have a nibble and purchase a book directly from the author/s. 
Our exhibition is entitled: EQUAL ON ALL 4 SIDES and you will find us on stand TG R1 at Alexandra Palace 
Here are the dates for the shows in 2013:
  • Alexandra Palace, London ~ 10th to 13th October 
  • Dublin ~ 31st October to 3rd November 
  • Harrogate ~ 21st to 24th November

I will be teaching an hours ‘tried and tested’ workshop in the Learning Curve at each of the three shows. I believe that Ally Pally is already fully booked, but maybe you might still get a place in either Dublin or Harrogate.


Workshop Description

You will be given clear and accessible, step by step instructions of how to create effective and instant designs, working directly into a sketchbook using a variety of media. You will go away with your sketchbook full of ideas and a head buzzing with possibilities for personal interpretation. This makes this short course a must whether your interest is in drawing, designing or in any aspect of textiles. Suitable for the complete beginner through to experienced artists.
