Christmas Fairs

I had a great season of fairs on the run up to Christmas with loads of new orders.

Thanks to everyone who called by and said hello. And an even bigger thanks to those that cane and bought things!

Lancaster Market

I was setup in St Nic’s Arcade in the centre of Lancaster with the lovely people from Meet the Makers.

Brantwood Winter Craft Fair

Set deep in the heart of the Cumbrian Lake District, overlooking Coniston Water, Brantwood was the home for the famous social thinker, art patron and philanthropist, John Ruskin. Now it’s a beautiful old house and garden open to the public all year round. In November it is filled with Cumbrias greatest artists and crafts people… and me!

Kirkby Lonsdale Market

I’m wearing many layers on a cold winter’s evening at a Christmas fair in Kirkby Lonsdale, Cumbria. I had my own wooden chalet – a great new experience for me.

Kendal Christmas Market

This is my favourite craft fair, set in the Malt Room of Kendal’s Brewery Arts Centre. Loads of other amazing crafters, I usually sell most of my stock!

A Visit to Baker’s Oak Bark Tannery

In August I was lucky enough to visit Britain’s last oak-bark tannery. They produce top quality leather from Devon’s finest cows using the ancient technique of soaking the hides in oak bark and water. And the great thing is, I peel oak bark with the Coppice Association NW and then sell it to the tannery. So some of that bark was peeled by me!

I love the VW campervan, especially the T1 and T2, so imagine how chuffed I was to be contacted by Mark Ritson, the director of Morecambe and Wize – Classic Vw Campervan Builders.
