iMake
A Guernsey girl shares her love of everything creative and handmade. Episodes cover a wide variety of crafts including knitting, food, photography and much more. The show also includes a generous helping of Guernsey culture too. So go on, join in - share the handmade love and celebrate the sheer joy of making stuff. Show notes can be found at www.imakegsy.com.
In this episode you will learn some fascinating facts about the Guernsey knitting trade. For example, did you know that Mary Queen of Scots was wearing white stockings, knitted in Guernsey, on the day she was executed? Also it is (apparently) illegal for men to knit during daylight hours in Sark! Find this, along with the usual crafty banter, in this episode of the iMake podcast.

This is a mini episode of the iMake podcast, so not in the normal format. The podcast is all about PMC - precious metal clay. I attended a fabulous workshop put on by the local College yesterday and was so chuffed with the work I produced I just had to share the experience. While I was there I interviewed Tony, a professional jeweller who was helping out with the class, as well as Fiona, Tracey and James, who all took part in the class. This podcast includes those interviews, along with some information about precious metal clay.

This podcast episode features a number of interviews from my recent creative weekend away in Jersey. I attended a scrapbooking workshop run by the ladies from Scrapagogo, called 'GoGo Take Shape'. I had a fantastic time and in just one day I made an exciting project and 4 new layouts. I learned lots of new techniques. A fantastic day was topped off by a great night out with the girls 'on the town' in Jersey, followed by a luxurious manicure at our hotel the following day (The Royal Yacht - without a doubt Jersey's swankiest hotel).
