It’s been a while, and may be a while more 

Who knew babies could suck time away from you! 

It’s been almost 5 months since he arrived and it’s wonderful but gone to fast!! 

We are making progress on the home studio with the aim of getting some work done, even if it is at the pace of this charming snail I helped cross the road this morning whilst walking to be neighbour to feed her mummy pig.

Spring is here to inspire us!

Homemade Christmas

Having a baby 3 weeks ago changes Christmas! Lots of time before he was born to make decorations, no time after to put them up!

The Little Arts Festival!

I am part of a team of volunteers that thought it was a good idea last year to put on a 10 day art festival. August 19th-28th in, and around Rushlake Green.

We are excited to announce the programme! Printed copies coming soon.

Please check out the website for the full list

There is visual art, music, crafts, classes, performances, and lots more! All by local artists, all showcasing the creative talent in East Sussex. 

What better to do this August than to come and join in?

Postcard project live!

The Little Arts Festival postcard project is now live through Facebook and The Arts Council jobs and news section. 

Calling all creatives!

Have you ever tried to create something from nothing? Well that is what myself and a small team of volunteers are attempting to do! 

Please support us by participating in our project!
