Preparing for London Design Festival

Well, everything has been a whirlwind since I got back from Slovenia…

I’ve turned my house upside down – because I’ve been in re-organisation mode, but I’m much happier with the way things are functioning at home/work for me now. Which is good.

Meanwhile, work-wise, I’m racing against the clock to get everything ready for TENT, which is part of the London Design Festival. The LDF takes place in late September, and, with luck, should provide a good showcase for my work.
I’m hoping for a few commissions, and I’ve been refining two of my ranges – the table-place names and the undulating shelves. A lot of friends and clients have been very kind in suggesting ways that the design of them could be tightened up, and I’ve been experimenting.
Still, I have to get down to making some finished samples now, ready for the show.

One nice thing about the festival is that I’m going down there with a group of colleagues from here in the North-East. Under the umbrella-name of ‘Design Event’ we are going to share a stand. More about that nearer the time, but it’s good to think I’ll be there at the festival with friends.


One downside to all this whirlwind is that I’ve had to cancel my next workshop series, which was supposed to take place in September.
