Arts an crafts in Cornwall
Cornwall is a great place to live of visit if you're interested in Cornish arts and crafts. There's lots of workshops, clubs, groups, craft fairs and stuff going on.
Drawing and painting
I now have my own separate little web site for my art work called Jayne Herbert Art there are links on there to my art shop on Zazzle where you can purchase products like cards and mugs.
I have also just created a new online store on Fine Art America where you can purchase prints and products like duvet covers and shower curtains.
I belong to several art groups now, Wesley Rock Art Group, Steve Cummings art group and The Hayle Art Society. They are all great fun with lots of talented people sharing their painting and drawing skills.
Wesley Rock Art Group
I belong a local art group, Wesley Rock Art Group, in Heamoor and have also created a little web site for them.
We meet every Monday afternoon and are usually given a subject to tackle. All materials are supplied. We display our art work on the web site, each member has their own gallery page on the site. You an view my gallery page there too.
Hayle Art Society
The Hayle Art Society have two groups, a Tuesday afternoon group and a Wednesday evening group. I belong to the Tuesday afternoon group.
The Society organise an art Exhibition in Hayle each summer, usually in Phillack Church Hall.
We haven't been given the dates yet for the 2017 exhibition but last year it was the 1st week in August.
My greyhound art and photographs
Many of my greyhound art and photographs can now be found on-line on my Zazzle store called 'bluedogatdingdong'.
There you can buy products with examples of my photographs and artwork on all sorts of products from mugs and cards to tote bags.
I've sold quite a lot of my stuff overseas including America and Australia.

Brother Scan n Cut
I recently purchased a Brother Scan n Cut machine, which I absolutely adore.
I have had great fun creating my own cutting files from my normal artwork and also now my digital artwork which I create on my tablet and load into Canvas the free soft provided by Brother to convert your files to the required .fcm format the machine requires.
You can scan, draw, cut and now even emboss with this nifty machine.
The possibilities are almost endless.
Sugarcraft and cake decoration
Sugarcraft is the art of using sugar to create beautiful decorations, mainly for decorating cakes for special occasions.
After taking a course, a few years ago, I took up sugarcraft as a hobby.
I particularly enjoy making flowers, but am sad to say I haven't done any for ages.
