Get Creative is a major celebration of the nation’s arts, culture and creativity. Led by BBC ARTS and What Next? in collaboration with a huge range of arts, cultural and voluntary
organisations, everyone is invited to get involved and share their creative talents. And I am thrilled to be a Get Creative Champion !

Over the next year ( and beyond of course) I will be offering everyone a chance to tap into their own creativity in my Studio on West Pier Scarborough.  You can drop in and make your own bracelet, necklace or earrings and throughout the year I will be offering Masterclasses where you can learn how to make more intricate pieces of jewellery.

At my launch last week I met lots of lovely people, most from Scarborough but others came from Leeds, Barnsley, Northwich and Guildford. Children especially enjoyed making bracelets, in particular Leilah who was thrilled to make one with her name spelled just her way. Her brother Percy was also proud of his and I think it’s fair to say they will both struggle to find off the peg items with their names on. She looks so delighted in her photo doesn’t she?
