The 2012 E17 Art Trail, a wondrous two weeks of open studios, events, art, sales, workshops, parties, and putting Awesomestow on the map, is on this year between 1st – 16th September.
This will by my third art trail, and this time I am hoping to rise to the occasion even more than in previous years!
This year I will be making some gorgeous new quilts for the trail, inspired by traditional quilts, executed in funky bright fabrics.
I will run some beginners sewing classes at a special reduced cost, there will be kids’ crafty workshops, I will be selling my trademark goodies and also some vintage sewing machines.
I will be open between 11 and 3 on the 1st and 2nd September, and 11 – 3 on the 15th and 16th September. For more details and bookings for classes during the art trail (and after!) please visit http://bookwhen.com/cheekyhandmades
And on Saturday 15th September between 1 and 4 there will be a special party on the green (@ Thorpe Crescent outside the Cheekyhandmade house, as well as various other art trail venues). There will be music, cake, kids games, some vintage campervan fun and some stalls selling funky wares (not just cheekyhandmades goodies although of course they will be available too).
Of course there are hundreds of other venues and people taking part too. More details: www.e17arttrail.co.uk. There is even a really cool app which can help you plan your route and gives you opening times and information and you can see all the venues on a map. Check it out on the app store under E17 art trail 2012!
