Katie Bonas' Open Workshop

On Thursday I ventured to a lovely Cotswold village called Yanworth, home to the workshop of Katie Bonas, who hand paints antique furniture giving it a new lease of life. It was another frosty Gloucestershire morning and I piled my goodies into the car wearing 2 pairs of gloves, 2 jumpers and a large coat! But I arrived at Katie's wonderful barn with plenty of time to warm up and take in the wonderful surroundings of her stone barn workshop.

It was the perfect setting for an open workshop and my work was on display alongside Katie's furniture, Lolly & Boo's boxed artwork and Sarah Hardaker's beautiful linen products.

The barn had a steady flow of people throughout the day, the mulled wine was flowing and mince pies were being warmed in a baby Belling in the corner of the barn. It was a great setting and fantastic to be amongst such lovely company design-wise. The day rounded up at 3pm, and I headed off back to the studio to continue with my Christmas orders!
Here is a little excerpt from the CMT Christmas newsletter I sent last night...
