Sam Shendi - a new friend in town

How exciting - sculptor and artist Sam Shendi ( is going to show some of his amazing new works at our Anthony's open studio event on Sunday. 
This means that the upstairs gallery has to be finished by Sunday, so theres people everywhere painting, electricians up ladders, nel on her hands and knees scrubbing the stairs and a general sense of madness in the air.

I'm spattered all over with paint, and my tartan rug is at risk of being used as a floor cloth it not guarded well. 

I wonder if I could get some of the rather fearsome tribal dancers to guard it for me while I nip out? They performed at last nights opening event for Haworth Festival and scared the bejeebers out of me to start with

Anyway, here's some of Sams stuff - you can come and see the new ones yourself on Sunday 11-4 or next Sunday 11-4 too. 
You cant miss it - its the only mill left on shuttle fold (BD22 8RX) with lots of people scurrying about madly with paint brushes....

A great big beast is coming to stay....

Anthony is SO excited - he's finally got himself a CNC routing machine! - does it mean anything to you? no, me neither, except that its going in the corner of the workshop where MY tartan blanket has always been. This is one unimpressed whippet. He tried to soften me up with talk of more time for walks and ear-rubs because the CNC beast will cut everything out for him instead of him doing it all by hand - and apparently it sucks up all the dust too so I won't need a bath so often. Hmmm, I'm reserving judgement until it arrives and actually does something useful.

Mind you, the one down at Fablab Airedale did a grand job of turning out the new Cable stuff - did I show you the photos?

So, thats that. The CNC cometh. He'll be wanting to get it up and running to show off at Haworth Art Festival - I'll tell you more about that next time.

Right, off to get some of this dust out of my ears and see what that cat is up to....
