Wow! it has been a busy week. It was great to welcome back old faces and exciting to meet new ones...who ever and how ever thank you for supporting your local shops and us, we are very grateful. We have had some brilliant headliners.....
Front page of the Surrey Mirror! Well done Natasha and good luck to "That Qwerky Place" I hope it's been a good week for you too.
People have just popped in say "hello" and welcome back, it has been so good to communicate with "real" people again....to chat, for people to enjoy their environment and feel comfortable enough to browse...
We would also like to welcome James to the Pop Up Shop, who is hand crafting these wonderful colourful stained glass pieces, which would enhance any window or for something more elegant his ceramic fish and reclaimed wood sculptures are so fluid they look and feel like a shoal.
James Armstrong bio
Inspired and created by sun, light & sea of the West Sussex coastline.
Myself and my best friend Milo (the Schnauzer) have collected all the washed up driftwood from the beaches, to live on in a new form. Each sculpture is truly unique & tells it's own story. Just as the sea has carved & shaped the driftwood on it's journey; I have hand carved each individual resin fish set upon the special rescued driftwood. Similarly I have created all the leaded glasswork, every piece is individual. All of my driftwood art is suitable for inside your home or outside. I also take commissions for something more personal to you.
Our very own Judit Matthews.... well done Judit.
It has been a fantastic opening week for "shop local" and we look forward to seeing you all again and to celebrate the High Street coming alive again. Meet some more of our outstanding artists next week.
