contemporary craft festival 2016


For the last few years I’ve been exhibiting at the Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey In Devon. It’s a beautiful award winning fair exhibiting Britain’s best creative craft talents in all medias, but not only that it has workshops, demonstration stands, family entertainment, live music, gorgeous food, trade stands the list goes on.


it’s a wonderful family weekend where everyone is catered for and I  always look forward to going. I not only get to see my fellow friends and makers but get to actually meet my customers and have a jolly good chat by jove. I always end up bringing back far tommy goodies that I’ve purchased from my favourite artists too, it’s hard not to!

This year I will be demonstrating outside, which means I get to show off all my shades that I’ve spent the last year making, you get to see how I work and ask as many questions as you like and if you want you can even buy new work that I’ve been making recently.

I’m really excited about the new originals I’ve been making recently. I feel I’m heading back more and more to my painting roots but using the new medium I am so in love with, thats thread and fabric. Here’s a little taster of some of the work that will be at the show.

  1. Just love the fishes!
    Sorry but the fair is too far away for me. Will make a plan for a long weekend for next year though.

  2. I was there on Friday. I loved it all! It was my first time (even though I live only forty mins away). The amazing level of skill was both inspiring and intimidating. Needless to say, I’ll be getting a bit crafty whenever I can. Looking forward to next year.
