Alice in Dockland

alice in wonderland and eleanorI had a trip out to the dockland area last night for the launch of Alice In Wonderland’s new studio in Cotton Street. She was based in Arena studios but artists are gradually moving out of there now as the threat of having to pay ‘commercial’ rents comes ever nearer.
As well as making fine jewellery, Alice likes to dress up and used this event as an excuse to have a valentines party, hence the exotic outfits. That’s her on the right alongside artist, Eleanor Hawkridge.
I had the arduous task of inflating balloons and opening bottles of champagne while the other guests dipped strawberries into chocolate fondue.
