Just SO busy right now… my first big fair of this winter season is later this week: the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair.
Now this is a fair I’ve heard many good things about but have never been too. A bit off my normal stomping ground as it’s up north (as you might guess from the name) in Manchester! If it’s reputation – and the list of exhibitors – is anything to go by, it’ll be fantastic. Lots of favourite familiar names, and new ones too.
I’m particularly looking forward to seeing the work of Malin Winberg: amazing raised silver bowls,
Ken Eardley: great ceramics
and Bekx Stephens – amazing folded and stitched paper forms.
But who knows what’ll grab me when I’m there?!
Do come along.
The opening evening on Thursday 20th is from 6-9pm, and then it’s open 10am – 7pm Friday 21st October, 10-6 on Saturday, and 10-5 on Sunday. Only £6 entrance (£10 on Thurs eve, £5 concessions, £10 for a weekend pass). Full info here.
