Did the month of September just fly by for anyone else? It was lovely to see someone with a little extra twinkle to their toes. Septembers shining star was Abigail Lagden of Curiously contrary. My she has been a busy lady and she bagged herself a fab two week residency at the Durham Dales centre to boot! Fantastic result Abigail.
It truly does prove that hard work pays off. I think she did a pretty incredible job of making a very plain space pop with all her beautiful creations don’t you?
Abigail describes her journey so far:
It makes me smile to create something new and beautiful and if it also makes someone else smile, then I feel like I have made the world a happier place.
I run a variety of fabric sculpting and mixed media workshops which allow participants to discover their creativity and complete beautiful projects.
Abigail’s thoughts on her residency:
It gave me the space and time to be creative away from my kitchen table and the distractions of home. I met lots of lovely people who popped in to see what I was doing and I got to talk about my work and the processes involved. It also made me think about where I want to be in the future and what I need to be doing to get there. The two weeks have left me ready for a little rest but also empowered, motivated and inspired to keep going on my artistic journey.
