A Farewell To Arm(chair)s.

It is with heavy hearts that we will be bidding a farewell to our workshop at the end of this week. Yes, we paid our rent. Yes, it was lovely and light. Yes, we got a fair-ish amount of work done here. Umm, yes, it WAS up two flights of stairs. But it’s been earmarked for demolition. Honestly, it wasn’t something we said. If you’re a fan of the Nelson Street  street art you better get down here toot sweet ‘cos we’ll be losing the giant fox I’ve been daydreaming over for the past year. You can also kiss goodbye to the magnificent Marvel Mural Competition. I’ve just snapped two pieces in situ. They are up in the shop now. Please start a flurry of purchases so I don’t have to move ALL THIS STUFF to the new studio over the road at Bridewell Island. Honestly. I don’t know where I’m going to stick it all (no suggestions, thank you).

Spring Has Sprung

Ahh. So it’s been exactly a year since Tickety-Boo left the comfort of the back room and into the workshop at Bridewell Space. I love the view from my window almost as much as I don’t love the fact that we are on the second floor, without lifts.

The team celebrated with (very demure) gin & tonics and I finished Andrew and Gilly’s re-covering. It’s chartreuse velvet with multi-coloured velvet buttons. Hmmmm, stroke-able. Smoothe smoothe, stroke stroke. MEOOOOWWWWW.

In other news, our spin-off commercial enterprise toasted installing a gabillion buttoned benches and banquettes at Greenbank’s newest amenity, after the dog poo and Jim’s Bottle shop, the rather fabulous Greenbank Pub. Revived by the Zazu’s team and full of delicious pizzas, fancy beers, decent red wine (if our baptism on Thursday was anything to go by) and frankly totally unnecessarily shots of Sambucca (if our hangovers on Friday were anything to go by).  It’s my local. I will be the lady in the corner, drinking red and looking underneath the banquettes for stray staples. For more on The Greenbank- https://www.facebook.com/nick.pennock.33?fref=ts
