Print 52, week 31. Craft fair linoprint

This weekend marked the last craft fair I’ll take part in on the run-up to Christmas, so I thought a little linoprint of my table would be apt for today. I’ll be booking more fairs in the new year so keep your eyes peeled for updates!

Artist and Makers fair at Waddesdon Plant Centre

I’ve scheduled this post because, no doubt, I will be running around like a headless chicken on Friday. I’ll be getting ready for the Artists and Makers Fair at Waddesdon Plant Centre which takes place over the weekend on both Saturday and Sunday, 11 and 12 May 2013. I always leave getting ready to the last minute, but have written this in advance so must be doing something right this time.

Thame linoprint

Another week, another new print!

Cutting the lino of my new print at last weekend’s artists and makers fair was a great idea it turns out. On Monday morning I was able to ink up and print straight away. My new print is a simple black and white number, of the Town Hall in my town, a little old place called Thame. Sam and I are doing a craft fair in this building on Saturday so it seemed an apt time to get a print done of it. Take a look at my last post to see photos of me carving the lino.

For more information about Thame Craft Fair on 13 October 2012, take a look at the organiser’s website.

This weekend’s craft fair at Waddesdon

Had a super time at Waddesdon Artists and Makers fair  this weekend, exhibiting with my sister Sam. Thanks to everyone who came. Had the chance to meet some great people, ate some delicious cake and even found time to cut the lino for my next print.

Our next event takes place in Thame, at the Town Hall, next Saturday. You can find out more on Sally Evans Events website.

Here are a few photos of the weekend for you to enjoy:

Next event: Artists and Makers fair, Waddesdon Manor

The next event that I will be taking part in is fast approaching. I’ll be at the Waddesdon Plant Centre this coming weekend 6 and 7 October, along with 50 other fantastic crafts people including my sister, Sam. The event will be open from 10.30am to 4.30pm each day with the £3 entry fee supporting local charities.

There will be lots of fantastic and highly skilled products to check out and many of the exhibitors will be demonstrating their craft on the day. I’m working hard to finish a four colour linoprint of Waddesdon Manor for the event – fingers crossed! Here’s how it looks so far:
