Reflecting on our workshops. Our longest running workshops are our Introduction to Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, perhaps it’s significant then that we have chosen to add to our paint-based workshops this year with the introduction of some more focussed topics, looking in detail at a few techniques and products as well as running free events on Fridays. Last week, we held a colour mixing event. This was a free, informal drop in event in the studio. We didn’t end up mixing any bright colours as everyone wanted to make greys! But, we mixed some great soft greys using unexpected colour combinations following Annie Sloan’s advice on colour theory to use contrasting colours to successfully make greys.

We are preparing for our first New Annie Sloan workshop . . . Gilding. We are super excited about this. We love the giant ampersand you gild on the workshop and take home. Once you start gliding you won’t be able to stop. We have recently gilded our studio door and think this is the first of many additions to the shop.
February has also seen a Botanical Paper Cutting workshop with Sarah Dennis, a Bristol based artist. This great workshop saw seven lovely ladies tackle the art of paper cutting. Library silence fell over the studio as high concentration took hold with their first task, to cut out a beautiful copper fern. We had them all pegged up over the table looking lovely. We had a visitor too, Bec’s sausage dog Albert, who normally has the day off on Saturday popped in to say hello. He was rather taken with a lady’s furry hat and would of sat under the table all day on it! Our Lino Cutting workshop made a return too. This processes really gets the creative juices flowing and another set of great designs were produced by our attendees: little houses, foxes, ducks, ferns, fish, robot, seed heads, etc. They all looked so good hanging on of pegs in the studio.

Victoria headed away for a long weekend in the beautiful Wales countryside to take in the fresh air and enjoy a bit of slow living. . . . She, and her partner Rich, took some time to switch off from social media, and the computer and instead made time to be creative with some sewing and a little drawing. She also took her Nikon DLSR camera to experiment with but unfortunately used the auto setting a bit too many times! ‘Maybe I’ll go on a course to learn about the settings…’ she reports! They stayed in a beautiful Edwardian house - decorated very honestly and simply with everything we love: found items, handmade elements with quilted bed throws and handmade cushions & curtains. DIY makeovers in the kitchen with painted kitchen cupboards and tiles handpainted in the bathroom were inspiring for their own home. Victoria has returned to work, inspired by the outdoors and getting back to nature, having blown some cobwebs away on the very windy cliffs of West Wales. Oh, and sporting a very pretty, sparkly number on her ring finger. . . warmest congratulations to her and Rich from all her colleagues.

We’ve been enjoying some new looks here in the studio, having created a new photo background using Annie Sloan Black wax. We love this product and feel it fits our look, rustic but elegant and industrial. We are using it on our website as a foil for all our lovely new stock, now arriving from makers across the area. We are passionate about selling beautiful, decorative items and useful pieces for the home.We value ‘by-hand’ products, giving our customers the opportunity to add a unique and more personal element to their interior design. We love to partner with UK based independent businesses and makers, especially those in the local area. We’ve created an online gallery to reflect these new products and well as going online with some stock.

In terms of furniture, we were excited to find a couple of great globe-styled bookcases. We are always on the lookout for them but they are rare. We think these make very cool pieces of furniture, with an apothecary look. They make great storage for any room as they are narrow and keep their contents dust-free, but we would say that, we have this thing for glazed cabinets! And we don’t think this is something that will fade. We don’t take on many commission’s but love it when we do. It gives us a chance to do something a little different. We had a lovely solid pine chest of drawers from a customer, a little newer than the furniture we paint for the shop. We painted the chest Paris Grey but kept the handles pine and then black waxed them. Do email us if your looking for a piece of furniture.

Days out to get inspired

Days out to get inspired

It feels funny writing about Christmas, like it was a really long time ago. But, we both had a lovely family Christmas at home with lots of get togethers, good food, and a present or two. It was lush to spend a few days in our homes, with a bit of pampering, time with partners and some cosy PJ days.

The house always feels so bare after the decs come down and get packed away, but our time off has given us time to do a few projects in our own houses. We can’t stay away from the paint brushes for long, it seems! We tackled both walls and furniture, using bold and neutral colours.

Extended time off, away from the day-to-day of the shop has given us time to refresh and focus on our plans for 2017, as well as popping into the shop to do some maintenance work, to keep our building and interior up-to-date and fresh. We’ve included a little more of Annie Sloan’s new Amsterdam, a gorgeous dark bottle green. We’ve had a move around, shortened our counter to make the studio space more inviting and tiled our studio kitchenette in smart subway tiles with a Paris Grey-coloured grout.

Whilst not painting and wielding screwdrivers, we made some exciting plans for 2017, including looking for new handmade stock to bring our customers everything we love about interiors and offering more inspiration using our Annie Sloan products including new workshops.

We have introduced a few workshops on Fridays and the Sunday market Sundays too, for people who can’t make our Saturday workshops. We are already in talks for our calendar of workshops for the second half of 2017, with a promise of more wreath workshops this year!

Our small stock room has a pile of furniture we have sourced in our break, so can’t wait to get painting and show you our great finds. First to be completed and in the shop is an amazing five section glazed bookcase that we couldn’t wait to get painted in our favourite Annie Sloan Graphite. We also finished a commission, an old fashioned larder cabinet in the fabulous Aubusson blue.

As part of our new chalk paint focus for 2017 we held our first free wax event, this included showing technique, giving samples of colours + wax to customers and we were offering a special price on the waxes for the day. The morning was a great success and we have more planned in, we are already looking forward to holding the next one. We love having interaction with our customers and offering more than just a shop service, our aim is to inspire you! hopefully we can do more of this. 

 

December

In the closing days of the year, we’re feeling reflective and grateful. We’d like to wish a Happy Christmas and say a big thank yous to all our customers, friends, family and collaborators who’ve helped make 2016 special and rewarding for us, across all aspects of our business and life as part of the community of Clevedon.

December has been chilly! We’ve seen some wonderful, beautiful frosty mornings as we trek across Somerset on buying missions, and cranked up the radiators in the shop. We’ve brought our furniture painting activities inside our storage space, instead of out in the carport we usually paint in, but it has led to some interesting and desperate wardrobe choices. We’re talking tights under jeans, so many layers you can barely bend or sit, and gloves and beanies bought from a cheap roadside garage, lending one the appearance of a robber!

Talking of painting furniture…

The Annie Sloan black wax is fast becoming our favourite product, lending old wood perhaps lacking in the right patina, a drama and modernity. One downside is the mess, we have very black hands!

We visited the Annie Sloan sales conference in early December at her Oxford head office. Aside from the conference itself, we had a tour of the paint factory and learned that by May, all paint production will be brought in house, leading to better quality control. One of the things production have been working at is to remove all black from their colour mixes so that when customers are mixing their own colours at home the lack of black content means that colours don’t get darker and muddier.
The conference included lots of announcements for next year including products and projects which added to the excitement of the day. Watch this space for the new additions to the range!
Advice was given to her stockists on how to become a ‘super stockist’ which, of course, we would hope to be and this mainly focused on how we can inspire all of you!  

Again, it was great to meet Annie, who remembers each stockist personally. It was also good  to meet fellow stockists who also inspire us. Each use the chalk paint to create products to sell on to their customer, in very different ways, such as Tea & Roses’ decoupaged furniture, each showing their own innovation, style and craftsmanship.
New Annie Sloan branding has been rolled out, more contemporary looking and with a focus on Annie herself and her relationship with other creatives, and continues with her message ‘Paint everything!’ to inspire creativity and individual style in your interior.

In the middle of the month, in the lead up to Christmas, we’ve hosted a mega wreath making workshop marathon with two double workshops on two consecutive Saturdays and a Sunday session too, making five groups in total.

Stephanie Eastwood floral design led the groups in making wild style wreaths made with a mix of greenery on the base and then decorated in a choice of cotton balls, seed heads, willow sticks, traditional orange slices & cinnamon or even dried chillies. Every single wreath looked different as everyone chose a different combination of the above- making them truly individual and unique- not something you can just purchase.
What we love most about the workshops is that you are coming for the experience….of being creative, making and taking home a finished item to enjoy. Even the person with the least confidence in their abilities is able to achieve more than they expected with the guidance and encouragement of the group. Either people find the confidence to continue with their new skill at home or want to come back to do more workshops.

We’ve particularly enjoyed the sessions as they’ve really helped us get into the spirit of Christmas with traditional Christmassy smells of spruce, orange slices and seasonal foliage!

We opened for an extra Sunday for Christmas shoppers for the first Sunday of the month while we were in the swing of hosting wreath workshops and it was lovely- this is definitely food for thought for opening next year. The Sunday offers the opportunity for customers to come to the shop who haven’t yet made in, as we know Saturdays can become a busy family day when working in the week. We have enjoyed meeting you all each time we have opened on a Sunday. We will open in 2017 for all the Clevedon Sunday Markets dates (first Sunday of the month) and may also do Sundays in December in 2017.  

On Sunday 11th, we took the HAVE market to the Curzon Cinema here in Clevedon. It was our last market of 2016, of a total of four HAVEs across the year. We’ve really enjoyed working with makers and stallholders, there’s a great community spirit amongst local artisans, many of whom stock the shop too! A big thank you to everyone for their hard work this year, and to our many customers.

As we prepare for the Christmas break, we’re thinking of the year ahead. We’re now in our 4th year of business(!) and we’re excited to come back to the shop in 2017 with new plans. We are using our annual January break to refuel and plan for the year ahead, a daunting task perhaps, to conceive of the whole year ahead in terms of new products, reaching goals, events & workshops.

November

November has been another busy month here at Nineteen, with furniture and commissions being particularly busy. We enjoy sourcing our furniture, but it is a real time investment, taking us far and wide to pick up the most beautiful, unusual, or useful things we can. Then, once we’ve brought them to the shop, they undergo a transformation in the downstairs workshop and yard, which, in the latter part of the month has become quite a chilly affair!

We hosted Botanical Inks for Fabric Dyeing Workshop for the first time. This workshop demonstrated this lovely slow method of bundle dyeing silk, a mindful process that can be environmentally friendly, encouraging participants to think about using the whole of plants, fruit and vegetables, whilst being aware of the power of natural processes and choices we all make. It felt simple, whilst being far from basic, an interesting play on the rudimentary and the primitive, creating beautiful almost ghostly patterns in fabric. And, surprising too: you unravel your bundle with, tah-da! beautifully unexpected results. Also this month was book folding, modern hand lettering and our last Annie Sloan paint workshop.

Last paint workshop of 2016 was on the last Saturday of the month and was lovely as always. A great bunch of ladies chatted and inspired each other, surrounded by paint, brushes and waxes. Learning the basics of how to work with the Annie Sloan products to achieve different finishes got their creativity flowing. Most were heading home to start or think about a project to tackle. Perfect timing too with Christmas around the corner.
 
This month we gave up our two days off to fit and paint two new fixtures for the shop. We loved our wallpapered dining tables but after three years we felt like an upgrade for our storage and display. The fixtures made us feel like a real shop!  And naturally, we are hoping to get out more lovely handmade and vintage homewares just in time for Christmas.

Albert is settling into shop life in the week. Keeping guard in the doorway, yet being so good not to run out and chase falling leaves or passing toddlers. He loves meeting new people and all the attention he gets. If you’re lucky, he will roll onto his back in front of you asking for his favourite belly rub. Beware though: scarves, long hair and laces are his favourite things to chew!

Sunday 20th saw the HAVE market at Clevedons Princes Hall. We had a  busy lead up, with lots of preparations including folded stars being made, cakes being baked and layouts being drawn up all in an effort to gather all our fellow makers and vintage finders to celebrate what is available in the area, in support of small, independent businesses through a community event for Clevedon. This time we expanded the stalls into the bar area, and therefore hosted a more stallholders. On the day we almost sold out of cakes, with plenty of visitors to the stalls and a distinctly festive feel in the air. We loved having new stallholders showing their creations.

It was a great day, so thank you for all the supporters that came out - we are always overwhelmed with the positive feedback! The forecast was for a stormy day but luckily the rain held off. We must have luck on our side as the next day was horrible!

We installed a window display in the Curzon Cinema to promote the next and final HAVE market of the year. Stallholders donated items to fill the window with an array of gorgeous goodies with a Christmas feel, and Victoria put her christmas tree in!

October

Well, that was October…
The month began with an inspiring visit to our local National Trust property for Victoria and her partner Rich, Tynesfield. A gothic revival Victorian home of built by guano merchants. The house is well preserved even though it only recently came into the ownership of the NT, so the decor is very authentic, ‘it reminds me of my degree project about the beauty found in the ageing process- with a focus on patterns. I loved all the wallpapers!’

Introducing Albert

Introducing Albert

Introducing Mr Albert Sausage… Bec has added to her family with little Albert who will accompany her most days to the shop. He already loves all the attention he receives from people that see him, he is so cute. As a mini Dachshund he will always be small. He loves to find a sunny spot and sleep! 'He has a slightly cheeky personality loving laces running under and around everything, and around everything, and sitting at my feet with those puppy dog eyes staring up for a cheeky snuggle' 

Our variety of workshops this month included Watercolour Brush Lettering with Harriet. There was deep concentration in the studio as everyone came to grips with lettering techniques. Harriet's demonstrations delivered a modern look to a traditional skill, inspiring the participants to continue practising to continue practising at home. 

We also hosted one of our favourite Treasure Box workshops. Each box was different and so personal, with value attached to each small item that have memories associated with them, they become ' treasures'. It was particularly nice at this workshop to see the end results.

Vic and Bec went to Bath, to an Annie Sloan book signing for new book, Paint Everything! Annie was sharing a new message- to give it a go, you might be surprised by the result but- it just works! Try on any surface and work in a creative way with the  imperfections. Try and make your projects led more by personally and individual style than trends.

She also spoke about mixing colours, so achievable with Annie Sloan paint as the colours are made from pure, saturated pigments and with no base of black they don’t just get darker and muddier when mixed. The paint is so versatile because if this, and the many techniques to achieve different looks, many of which are included in the book to inspire new thinking. Annie describes her paint as ‘sympathetic to its surrounds, soft and velvety’. Looking through the book, there are lots of new things to try, using it with fabric is very tempting…

‘Annie is very personable, she remembers each stockist  and is so friendly and down to Earth. She was very encouraging about Nineteen and interested in our background and art degree, to learn how we’ve found our style and how we use this. We were keen to share our particular enthusiasm for one of her new colours: Amsterdam Green and how we can't wait to start painting in it!’

September

September has passed in a whirl with so much going on, so much planned for the months, and year, ahead. 

The last Sunday Market of 2016 was early in the month. We've really enjoyed helping get it off the ground, it's a wonderful community event with people from Clevedon and beyond experiencing beautiful products from local producers, as well as having a good look around the shops that the Hill and Sea area has to offer. We look forward to its return in the new year, and we'll definitely be part of it. 

We also held the Have Market at the Curzon Cinema. 500+ people came to see us, with 25 stalls over three floors it was a real Curzon ‘take over’ with a buzzing atmosphere and a strong sense of community between the stallholders as makers, collectors and designers as well as the local people of Clevedon who'd come to see their wares. 
We raised £475.00 for the restoration fund for the cinema building by asking for £1 donations, which was amazing. We also had the added bonus of a leg and arm workout, helping everyone move their stock up and down the stairs!
We loved networking with the stallholders, all so creative and working hard as small business owners. We love supporting them, and found the day really inspiring to try and fit more making into our schedule. We, by necessity, spend much of our time doing admin ...although we do buy, style and paint for 19...and run a graphics business in the studio- so not all not creative! But we want to craft more! It is an early new year resolution.

Naturally, following the launch of a new business, it has been a struggle to take time off and get away, partly due to not wanting to miss opportunities and partly because of the volume of work involved. However, Vic took a holiday! She went away for a week in the sun with her partner Rich, leaving Bec at the helm, superwoman that she is, running workshops, the market, design projects and of course, shop sales.

September has seen the return of the workshops after a little summer break. We started off with the ever-popular lampshade making, where we were joined by textile artist Emma Giacalone and shown the process of making a lampshade with workshop tutor regular, Sarah. Then, we hosted Ruth Broadway's lino cutting for both morning and afternoon workshops. We met Ruth some years ago in Bristol as part of the Made in Bristol pop up shop, and have since produced the vinyl decals for her new venture, Paper Plane in Bristol. Ruth was an amazing tutor, confident and knowledgeable, inspiring a creative and fun atmosphere. We strung a washing line across the studio for the participants to hang their images on, and everyone made the most wonderful work, after all claiming they were not creative! Finally, we were joined by Emmeline Simpson for Cityscape illustrations again, we were booked up for a double workshop. We met Emmeline while networking and she has been stocking 19 with her cityscape coasters and mats. We've been chatting for some time about working together on a project so we loved getting her into the studio teaching and sharing her techniques for creating illustrations, with her friendly and down to earth style. The two groups were quite different, the first more nervous to start with but the second enthusiastically getting stuck in with laughter, chatting and lots of tea drinking. Emmeline mainly works from home and enjoyed meeting the attendees some of which were Instagram followers she could then meet in person. This is the wonderful part of the workshops, people coming together face-to-face to be creative and sociable, many attendees swap numbers and make firm friends.  
Both Emmeline and Ruth's workshops return in 2017.

We've also been working away on booking in workshops for 2017, growing the range of things on offer and seeking out new tutors. Having to think so far in advance is pretty usual for a small business, especially in retail, but its still hard to think in terms of months in advance and even harder to get others to commit.
We want our workshops to be led by artisans, delivering contemporary, on-trend skills with take away results. We want to offer them to everyone, being fairly priced and with a lasting product to enjoy. We'll be doing a post to introduce some of them soon.

Lastly, we can't avoid the fact, Christmas is coming. We are preparing 'below stairs' with stockroom moves, tidying, buying and sorting in the run up, as well as adding to the shop with some new storage and display furniture. Screwdrivers and paint brushes at the ready!
