The British craft trade fair BCTF 15th-17th April 2012

I have just returned from a really good show up in Harrogate and I just wanted to share some images with you...

It was a really good show in terms of atmosphere and a good number of trade visitors from the north. Harrogate is also a lovely place to stay and I stayed right in the town near to Betty's tea room! I also met some lovely fellow makers which is always a bonus.

I was pleased with my display and my old bobbin washing line for my cards...

My Jubilee range went down a treat and I can't wait to get stuck into making them!

Latest news...

I have just realised I have not blogged for a few months now so I thought it was a good time to share my news! It's been a busy one with lots of exhibitions, workshops and new projects to work towards.

I will be travelling up to Harrogate for the British craft trade fair BCTF this weekend 15th-17th and I will be taking all my wares with me and my new range for the Queen's Jubilee celebrations this summer. For more details www.bctf.co.uk

Our exhibition 'The collective' at Creative Hinckley is still running until the 5th May...
'Formerly all graduates of De Montfort University in Leicester, “The Collective” were formed in 2010. All the members have completed a BA (Hons) degree in Design Crafts which covered a wide range of disciplines from fine silver smithing, ceramics, glass, to mixed media, printing, textiles and more. The group provides a showcase of diversity of skills, fine workmanship and development of their chosen craft as they strive to establish their careers in their particular field.'

There is still places left on my workshop there for Friday 20th April.
