Maker’s Fair this weekend

IMG_3728

I’m very excited to be participating once more at the magical Cranbrook Iron Makers’ Fair this weekend, 5th and 6th August. It will be held at the King John’s Nursery in Etchingham, East Sussex, itself a fantastic venue, with a cafe, shop, and unusual plants to buy.

The fair will consist of local makers, artists and craftspeople demonstrating their skills, talking about their work, and selling their unique handmade items. It was a lovely event last year, really friendly and relaxed. It’s well worth a visit.

These handmade willow ‘Tree-Baubles’ will be adorning the trees and are also for sale if you fancy adding a sculptural element to your garden. Come find me!

Gathering stock ready for the next fair which is at Knepp Castle, West Sussex, on June 3rd and 4th. Looks like its going to be a fun, relaxed and quirky event with a vintage/festival vibe, and  plenty to see, do and buy. I’m looking forward to this one… hopefully camping in the sunshine too! See you there! Check out their website: Floral Fringe Fair Website
