Virtual Open Studio Week
You may recall that I was going to have a ‘real’ Open Studio event about now. Like all other plans in this strange summer, it got cancelled . . .
But I have come up with the idea of having a ‘virtual’ event – partly online, and partly socially distanced by appointment, which might fill the gap to an extent.
It will start tomorrow, Saturday, 20th June and finish on Saturday, 27th June.
It won’t be the same, of course – no home made cakes for a start! – but it will give me the chance to share some new work and merchandise with you, especially if you live fairly locally to me – and, of course, if you normally come to my house for Open Studios, the chances are you do live near me!
I have had lots of lovely new cards printed, in a good big A5 size, which have gone to make up three new greetings cards packs. I have also had eleven new mini-prints made. These are mounted but unframed, and are all in limited editions of fifty copies only. There are also lovely new ‘seaside’ jute bags, as well as my ‘cute jute’ bags, large prints, post card packs – and paintings!
Some of these things are easy to post to you. Some are virtually impossible to post – or the postage would be so expensive that it would make the item a ridiculous price. So I have made a plan . . . .
HOW IT WILL WORK:
Paintings: These will be FOR COLLECTION ONLY. All the available paintings can be viewed on my Gallery pages. If there is a painting that you are interested to see ‘in real life’ email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will arrange a time for you to come and have a socially distanced viewing in my garden, or just inside my extension if wet. If you decide to purchase you can pay using my card reader, which will be cleaned before and after every use.
Large Rectangular prints, Small square prints, small jute bags, large jute ‘seaside’ bags: These items are FOR COLLECTION ONLY. They can be viewed on my SHOP page. They can be paid for in the Shop using PayPal. Once I receive your payment I will email you and we can fix a time for you to come and make a socially distanced collection. You ring my door bell and step back. I put the bag of goodies on the door step. You pick it up. Easy!
Small Rectangular Prints, Painting Project Books, Greetings Card packs, Postcard packs: These items CAN BE POSTED ( although if you live near and would rather collect that’s fine!) They can be viewed on my SHOP page, and paid for by PayPal and I will post them to you. Postage to any UK address is free.
I have clearly marked everything in the SHOP either FOR COLLECTION ONLY or FOR POSTING OR COLLECTION.
I’ve tried to make it all fairly straightforward, but don’t hesitate to drop me an email if you need clarification, of just want to ask about availability.
I hope you enjoy having a browse – I have enjoyed getting everything ready! 🙂
