Summer time post.

Hello its now August,I really do not know where this year has gone.I have sort of got over the losing of the gallery and now seem to have more time for my self and family and mainly the garden. This year it looks amazing, the flowers ,colours and feeling when walking or sitting in it is just brilliant. Moving to the community centre I think now was a godsend.
I think I was so consumed with the gallery /shop, I had lost myself. Now I have found myself again, and I am still teaching- that to me is brilliant.


Hello Im sorry its been so long since The last blog- I really don't know where to start. Such alot has happened. Well the shop and gallery were doing so well and then a bomb came through the door in the form of the estate agent. The owner had sold the lease,we knew it was inevitable,but not so quickly.We had to leave the shop . 
we are now based in the 
Whitton Community Centre in Percy Road TW2 6JL
Its funny you know I really think things happen in our lives for a reason.
The community centre  was missing one aspect ART & CRAFTS

December 2014 News

Well its been nearly a year that we set up the ARTBOXuk in Whitton. I cannot believe that it has been that long already. I would like to say a big thank-you to all the artists that have showcased this year in the gallery,and a really bigger one to those artists who have given their time to help in some form or other be it looking after the gallery ,window displays or running workshops. Then a huge thank-you to Terry for his support and accepting the 12 hour shifts I spend at the workshops.Without us as a team we wouldn't be so successful.

September News

Hello, Everyone, its been ages since I had the time to write something, we have been busy with workshops and commissions and its all getting on great. The summer brought us lots of new students and we had our best month of workshops in August. Now that the schools are back ,parents are booking in for some well earn't 
de-stressing  own-time... Lots of young students are taking advantage of developing their skills as they are now starting their coursework for GCSE's and A levels.Also we are now getting noticed and lots from good word of mouth.

RICHMOND ARThouse Open Studios

Hello everyone - ARThouse Open Studios is now under way, and we have had an excellent response at my own studio and at the gallery in the high street. Thank-you to every one who has helped so far especially Jean who has work like myself,tirelessly to make it all run smoothly. We have a lovely display of work in the gallery and a wide range of fully tutored Art & Craft workshops. We now offer sewing machine servicing and repairs,which is very popular.
The 'Arty Partys' are very popular and are a great success.

June update

Well summer is here at last and The passing community are looking up and around instead of hiding from the wind and rain. Lots of passing trade and lots of the local community joining the workshops. and loving them....We have had wonderful reviews from them - the quality of teaching and variety of the art and craft disciplines.
Half term went by so quickly we hardly have had time to change the window displays.
The Next venture for us is on Saturday when we are helping to host a Tea pARTy for the charity  'United Response'  This is a charity that supports People in the community who have learning difficulties.


Hello everyone ,
Thank-you all for your lovely messages i really enjoy reading them - Don't forget to suggest any ideas you might have to help us get even better.
April has started with some better weather and has brought the community out into the High Street and -hence they are starting to notice us (even though we have been here now for 12 weeks) The response s to the project we are offering is just getting better and better we have increased the numbers joining and inquiring about workshops .
