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.
Some photos from the Handmade Makers Market at Music in the Park, Thame on Sunday. Excellent weather and a great turnout. I put my guitar prints, badges and tote bags centre stage and people loved them. Plus the craft fair finished at 4pm so we got to go and enjoy the music afterwards!
This Sunday sees the second Music in the Park taking place in Thame, my hometown. There will be great live music, lots of beer, delicious food and probably somewhat dubious dancing, but the main reason for visiting (in my humble opinion) will be the craft tent. This year there will be a Handmade Makers Market selling lots of awesome stuff, and my stall will be continuing the music theme with lots of guitar prints, tote bags and badges.
Music in the Park takes place in Elms Park in Thame from 12noon to 9pm with adult tickets costing just £8 on the door. It’s a really great family day out (family tickets available too!) so I hope to see you there – can’t wait! Here are some of the music inspired pieces I will be bringing with me:
Perfect for carrying your records.
You can buy many of these items in my Etsy store, the badges and tote bags will be listed there soon!
