Artist of the month

Faringdon Information centre is pleased to welcome Teresa Mackenzie as December’s artist of the month. Teresa has lived in this area all her life and over the years has tried a variety of crafts.  She likes to try new handicrafts as well as returning to ones she has enjoyed in the past.  Her favourite is making jewellery, not only stringing necklaces and making up earrings, etc., but making the beads that make up these pieces. This involves hand rolling each bead, decorating and baking them and then varnishing each one.  Another favourite is Redwork embroidery, usually in the form of Christmas decorations.  She also enjoys sewing, making small gifts such as lavender bags, make-up bags, card purses, etc.  Another craft she has been working on is shuttle tatting (a form of lace making) and has recently been working on pretty snowflake earrings.  Her work can also be seen each Friday at the Faringdon Country Market in the Corn Exchange from 9am to 11am.

Come along to the Faringdon Information Centre during December to see Teresa’s beautiful handcrafted jewellery and gifts.

Faringdon Information Centre open 9 am to 4 pm Monday to Friday and 9:30 am to 1 pm on Saturday’s.
