New Horizons - The Net North Shields

Last Update: October 25, 2014

Hello every one

Its been quite some time since Ive written on my blog, naughty me.... it was however a case of priorities and putting family first. Things (dare I say it) seem to have settled, so I am now able to spend some time on my crafts, website and blog.

So whats new:
The biggest step I have taken is to try and open a little business of crafty things, but that also took a back seat for a while.

I am a volunteer at The Net North Shields, which is such a great place as it is all about the locals, the fishing industry, how it became and how it has transformed. Come on down they would love to hear your stories and experiences of your visit to the quay.

There are a few events coming up and the first one is this weekend Sunday 26 October 2014 and it is about drawing and using your sense of smell and instincts to create a fantastic piece of work.

The Big Draw is the world’s biggest drawing festival, so why don't you bring the family along and create some masterpieces using the best viewing platform in the North East.
Local artist and fisherman Michael Smith will be on hand to show you how to take inspiration from the sights and smells of the Fish Quay to create your very own work of art.
Best of all, if your picture is given a top ranking then it will go into the first ever Net calendar, how sick is that...
I am enjoying my time at the Net and it is good to be able to give back to the community.

Little far for me to go. I'm still not exactly sure where the quay is located.
I'm sure some of you in the UK might be able to decipher that address in the footer.
