The British craft trade fair (BCTF) April 2015

I have been so busy for the last few weeks since the BCTF catching up on making and contacting all the lovely people I met. It was also nice to see familiar faces and catching up with lovely maker friends is always a bonus!
I was pleased with my stand and my new sign fitted in a treat...

My hanging boards came back out this year as you can't screw into the space at this show. I added a pop of colour on the centre board this year which really stands out and my new photos looked fab on this.

I took along my new bird house range which went down well...

As well as some old favourites!

I also took the new collaboration work myself and Samantha Robinson (SARK) have been working on. A range of textured jewellery and vessels inspired by zips and my floral leaf pattern taking inspiration from each others techniques and ways of working with materials. We would also exchange pieces half way through making so it's a real mix of both of our styles...

As well as making orders, I will be getting ready for my next show in June, The contemporary craft festival, Bovey Tracey, Devon, 5th-7th June, http://craftsatboveytracey.co.uk. It is always such a good show to do, great location, wide variety of makers and lot's going on throughout the day with demos and workshops so it's definitely worth a trip!
