This Saturday, 17th September I will be at Cymru Contemporary Craft Fair, which is part of the massive Helfa Gelf* art trail (North Wales' biggest open studio event)! Created to highlight artists and makers in the North Wales area, there will be a fantastic and diverse selection of ceramics, jewellery, sculpture, metalwork, woodwork and textiles. Set on the beautiful Quayside of Conwy (in a Marquee not far from the Castle in case the weather misbehaves) it will be a nice environment to pick up unique pieces for yourself, your home or any other birthdays or anniversaries coming up that you might need ideas for.
The timing also gives the opportunity to commission pieces before the hectic Christmas rush if you're looking for something really different and special. This is a really great chance to meet the makers and see them with their work, so you know where a piece comes from, how it's made and who made it which you just won't find on the high-street. This is also the first time I will be showing my work in a selling environment like this so I will really look forward to seeing you there! ( I have also been working on some really exciting new pieces which I will preview at the event!)
