Travelling jars

The jars and I are off to Yorkshire in the morning because I’m speaking at this event in Leeds organised by Emma from the Culture Vultures blog.

Emma was keen to make this a networking weekend, so there’s tons of exciting stuff for me and the other speakers to do. We each got to chose what we wanted to experience in Leeds and I asked to meet up with artists’ groups and see art spaces. So I’ve got three and half days of meeting interesting people, being shown round art spaces and going to art exhibitions. I’m even fitting in a flying visit to my nephew on his second birthday. Although I expect to be exhausted when I return on Monday evening, it’s going to be so worth it. Can you tell that I’m just a teeny-tiny bit excited?

Don’t worry, there will still be jar updates – and if you’re in Leeds or Bradford, you’ll have the chance to find a jar!
