It's been a while since I've posted, busy with the shop and the "Home To Roost" exhibit. Opening night went really well and just the other morning CBC radio hosted their live Information Morning show from inside the exhibit at the Centre for Craft and Design. The Bird Show was on first , very early, and they were a natural fit surrounded by all our creatures in the exhibit. Then Steve Sutherland who hosts Information Morning had fun for a couple of hours learning how to hook. throw pots and in between interviewing all six of the artists in Home To Roost. Each of the interviews went great, fun and entertaining.
Yesterday I was interviewed for the local paper the Cape Breton Post. I'm having my Grand Opening this Saturday and they did a short interview with photo to promote the upcoming event. :)
