Living Crafts Weekend

Well, the weather was certainly against us at the beginning of the weekend!  As we tried to set up our marquee on Friday, the heavens opened and we had a pond and a stream in the tent!

The weather was pretty bad on Saturday too and it kept people away but the show was amazing, some beautiful crafts on show, lots of workshops to try including felting with yours truly, pot throwing, silk painting, and lampwork.  The chainsaw carving competition was fantastic as seen here!

The Hylands Artists, Andrea Neale, Mona Marnell, James Wilkinson and myself had a huge marquee all to ourselves.

The weather was much better on Sunday and I spent a lovely day holding demonstrations and teaching how to make felt balls!

 My stall, showing my newly felted vases, especially for the show!

Beautiful polymer clay buttons, made by my daughter Jessica
 Hand felted purses with beaded flowers
 Hand felted soaps, also especially for the show!
Lavender scented pin cushions

It was a fantastic show and we met lots of really nice people who I hope will return to visit us at the studio at Hylands stables on our open days, every Sunday and Monday
