beautifully busy week ahead
Hello, my dears. I have a rather busy week ahead of me, it's going to be a tad stressful but I'm very much looking forward to it. Today, my second year art class started to prepare for our final major project exhibition, which will open to the public next Wednesday, with the private viewing being held the day before. I'm a bit annoyed though, because our exhibition is to be held in our rubbish classroom, whilst another year's work gets to put up in the college gallery. I took a bit of time out earlier to pop to my favourite shop in Kingston, a gorgeous antique and vintage market. The shop is full to the brim with vintage, vintage inspired and antique furniture, clothing, jewellery and trinklets. Most of the stuff is a bit out of my price range, but there are bargains aplenty to be found, I recommend you have a little visit! Tomorrow I shall pop back to college, even though it is my day off to check out the progress and possibly hang up my frame and shelf. Then in the evening my Grandma and I will be going out for a free dinner at 222 Veggie Vegan, as a couple of weeks ago she won a £50 tab with her local newspaper (oh how we love our competitions!). On Friday and Saturday, I shall be attending a full two day Quilts conference at the V&A, which will focus on the hidden histories and the untold stories of quilts. The conference is meant to cost £92, but as I am a student I only had to pay £10, bargain! Also, as part of me attending the conference, I have been given the oppotunity to visit Natasha Kerr's (the artist who inspired my final piece) studio, which I shall visit on either Thursday or Sunday. How exciting! I wish you all a wonderful week. Love Jazzabelle.
