Seaside Holiday Window Display

Augusts Seaside and Holiday theme has been well received by 
customers, visitors and window viewers.
The backdrop was a quilt I did many years ago for Uni and has 
plastic which protected the conservatory window panels!
It was the right shade of blue!
Jo's Beach hut cushion hints to her wonderful Exhibition
inside the studio, there are cards and prints available too!
Jellyfish made with victorian glass bowls, celery vases, plastic and 
iridescent thread.
Cheryl made the freeform crochet and Jack made the
paper coral. 
Jill who is a resident artist and tutor in the studio
made the paper boat.
Mr Robin looks on peering inside the 
'Shades of Blue Nest'. 
While the mannequin guys are having fun.

September's window celebrates The Swaffham Food Festival 
and Autumn.

Enchanted Nest For The Window


It's fun every month sorting out the window display and we have
had so much support and encouragement from visitors and passers by.
 We are"making stories"in our window.
They are becoming real Diorama's.
They depict the studio 'Inspiration of the Month'
and evoke the change within the studio with displays
and Exhibitions.

The Enchanted nest was one of three which we have made for the
window to continue the story of our Robin.
it contains a Golden Egg, far to big for a robin!
He had his nest inside a gilded cage.
You had to open the door for him to be able to go in!

Each month a little boy and his Nan look for the
Robin and his nest in the new window display.
This months inspiration is 'The Sea and Holidays'
so, here is the Robin looking into
his nest inside a rather sea worn nest.

A you can see we are having far to much fun making displays:))
I think the nest is a symbol that we are all quite happy in our
new studio home.

Thank you to Ellen for the beautiful photos.
