it would appear things are beginning to open up again in our area after several months of closure due to COVID-19 and we have moved to the phase where stores can open but with guidelines. we will be opening the retail side of things, but sadly will not be able to offer the makers lounge or workshops for the foreseeable future.
we have done some shuffling around giving the retail front part of the building some extra space and life to it, having sat alone for a quite some time. the lanterns we have hanging have been given some spring bling in the way of vintage mexican paper flowers and some vintage lace i hand~dyed a little while back. the cylinder of lace wraps around the tassel and disguises the wooden base quite nicely. i do wonder if a bit of gold would be rather delightful and i have no doubt after a few days of pondering, gold bling will happen.
our first day to open will be friday june 26th and every friday/saturday afterwards but it will be by appointment only. more information to come on booking a time to visit us, along with a link to the page to sign up. we will also be putting all this info in a mewsletter shortly!
it is definitely a work~in~progress but i know we are not alone in this, so many businesses trying to figure out the new normal. we are just excited to be back in the ATELIER and have high hopes you will wish to be too!
