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.
Thought I would share some photos of our stand at the Handmade Makers Market at the Old Fire Station in Oxford. I spent the day before working on some new products and created some cushion covers and tissue pack pockets using some of the fabric I designed recently – keep an eye out for them appearing on Etsy soon!
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.
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:
The first craft fair of the autumn kicked off at Oxford Castle last weekend. We (myself and my sister Sam) were part of a Handmade Makers Market packed full of super talented creative folk. The weather was, for the most part, great, and the crowds flocked to see our stalls, as well as local food and drink producers, entertainment and even some goats and pigs! We also met the Mayor of Oxford, which was nice.
