New for 2013

Happy new year! I thought it has been a while so I thought I was due a blog post to share my news...

My Lace inspired collection is still on display in Debbie Bryan’s studio and shop and Nottingham castle as part of Debbie Bryan Heritage.
“Lace:here:now”  September 2012 – February 2013
“Fuelled by a continued resurgence of lace in contemporary culture and art and design practice, Lace:here:now is a season of events that will take place in the city that was once at the heart of the lace manufacturing industry - Nottingham. In recognition of the value of lace and its importance to the identity of Nottingham and beyond, Lace:here:now will celebrate the heritage of Nottingham lace and demonstrate that lace still inspires, fascinates and excites.”  

At Made by hand show, Wales I won a feature in Homes and Antiques magazine so watch this space for Katie Almond ceramics popping up in the March issue. So exciting!

Also in March I am taking part in the Design Factory collaboration exhibition ‘Synchronise’ and I am collaborating with the lovely Milly Moore. Check out her lovely jewellery here www.millymoore.co.uk and watch this space for images of what we create together!
