Review by Maggy Woodley of Red Ted Art
The internet is an extraordinary thing; I have spent nearly 7 years working with various people on UK Handmade without ever meeting them. We can share work, ideas and information without leaving our computers (or houses, come to that). Every year, we say we will go to this event or that event and it never happens, so Bebe and I decided this time to make the effort, get on the train - travelling to London from opposite directions - and meet in the flesh for the first time since we started working together online all those years ago!

Spring Showcase 2015
Going by the snow that most of us seem to have received this morning, it certainly doesn't feel as though we are in the throes of Spring! But let's pretend for one moment that the sun is shining, the sky is blue, and the birds and bees are getting busy in the garden. Take time out with a cup of char and a biscuit (or five) to enjoy our newly published Spring Showcase.
