Best wishes for 2023

My site domain was sold to a new company and I have since been trying to work out how to use and edit the site, so apologies for the site looking even more chaotic than normal. I am attempting to add some new pages  but, at the moment, they are at the end of the old site. In due course I hope to work out  how to get the new information into some sort of order with the old site. My shows, so far, for 2023 are:-

Wisley Gardens - 27th Apr - 1st May;

RHS Hyde Hall - 25th - 28th Aug;

Hever Castle - 7th - 10th Sept.

The contact page still seems to be working if you require any information.

For Now I attach some images of new feather designs.

Best Wishes Brian

Wisley Gardens - 8th - 12th November

After 12 months of little workshop action I am being let loose on the public at Hever Castle - 

9th - 12th September, where hopefully I will be able to meet up with friends, old and new.

After catching up with many jobs I returned to the workshop a few weeks ago where the watery theme is being expanded. Hope to meet up with some of you next month. 

See  New Wave for a preview of some new pieces.

Many thanks for all your support during lockdown.

Well these have been strange times with plenty of time for reflection and the chance to get jobs done that have been waiting months / years to finally get done. Needless to say I ,like all independant craftsmen, have been most grateful for those who have made contact in oder to purchase goods during lockdown.Its certainly helped to keep things ticking over as the shows have been cancelled.Two shows have now been rearranged :- Hyde Hall, now 17 - 20 Sept & Trentham 24 - 27 Sept. This will now be a bit of a road trip for September with Hever Castle also pencilled in 10 - 13th.

I have  recently been exploring ideas from water and wave movement, even though, ironically, in these times I have not been able to make the short journey to the coast to see them in action, despite the fabulous weather. 

I have added a selection of these pieces under New Wave and am adding new sections based on pieces that can be purchased for under  fifty and a hundred pounds. All orders through the website, up to 1st September, will receive a 15% discount - please quote be15.

I hope that you have all found some positives during these strange times and that we will be able to start meeting up again in September at the various shows.

Best Wishes Brian

Belated Happy NewYear to all - and I hope that you are enjoying a bit of February summer. Still reckon the daffs will get a bit of a shock in the next few weeks.

Chelsea looms - 8th - 10th March.

I returned from migration soon after the start of the year and pondered if I have new ideas in store or do I revamp some past styles? After sharpening my pencils and with the help of a small whiskey - Welsh of course - the grey matter moved the lead across the paper and the new stlye arrived. "Dance"! At the moment I am heading down the South American route and am looking at Aztec patterns for the colouring. I started with Salsa and Tango and am now toying with Paso. I attach a couple of images of my first efforts and look forward to showing a small selection for the first time next week.

Please let me know your thoughts especially if you can make it to Chelsea next week.

Best Wishes, Brian

Brooklands and Hyde Hall over, Winchester and Wisley ahead

What a cracking summer. 

I thought that it was about time that I did some catching up!!

Just got back from Brooklands and Hyde Hall shows where it was good to meet up with a good mixture of old and new faces. " Old " as in met before! I attach a couple of images showing new designs from the summer of 2018.Designs and pieces made from studies taken from Swallow detail and a new set of designs that will hopefully be on show for the first time at Winchester and Wisley. No title to these yet.

I hope that you have all summered well and hopefully there is still a bit more to enjoy. 

New designs, hopefully on show at Winchester and Wisley
