Just want to advertise the fact that the Contemporary Craft Fair is coming soon to Bovey Tracey, Devon. Having visited it for the last two years and made several purchases, I can vouch that it is amazing collection of really innovative, interesting and high quality artefacts with artists and crafts people all present to chat to.
The workshops are good value and useful - I did the 'Making Jewellery' one and the local, homemade food is pretty good too. Slices of cake were far too small though! There are also craft demos, live music and Punch and Judy.
This year, I would like one of these (silver and wood jewellery by Christine Kaltoft) please:
This artist's work (Jennifer Collier), was one of my favourites last year, everything painstakingly crafted from paper:
This year I'm volunteering at the Kids' Craft Tent which I'm really looking forward to.
Entry is £6 adults and free for children. Oh, and you can park on site for free. I'm going to have a couple of free tickets due to my helping in the craft tent, so if you're local to me, get in touch and I'll give them to you! Put it in your diary.
The Craft Fair has a target of reaching 800 Facebook fans and only has two weeks left, please join here if you can, then you get all the updates and loads of great photos of their artists' works:
