Made By Hand

2015-11-05 Made By Hand 038Well it’s all over including the shouting, and I’m just about recovered! It was exhausting but it was fun!

For anyone that I didn’t already tell about it…you must be very good at hiding….Friday to Sunday last weekend was spent at Cardiff City Hall, taking part in Made By Hand Contemporary Craft Fair.

As Saturday was Halloween, I was there with wings on and sweets to give out, I must say great way to start a conversation!Ā 2015-11-05 Made By Hand 0612015-11-05 Made By Hand 0652015-11-05 Made By Hand 053

I did say it was exhausting

A good portion of the weekend was spent keeping Jim company at the edge of my stand, took a while to figure out who he was, for some reason no one saw fit to give him a name plate! But locals filled me in, and gave out to me for not knowing the former prime minister and local boy Jim Callaghan. I’m playing the Irish card! That and the fact that he was prime minister before I was born! He made a nice companion for the weekend though šŸ™‚Ā 


I was on the stand pretty much the whole time so I didn’t get a huge amount of time to wander around with my camera, but the boy did cover me for a little bit on the Saturday so here’s a few pics šŸ™‚

I think these pieces by Rob Braybrooks were probably some of my favourite things there.

I had some lovely company from Quercus Silver all weekend while I drooled over her work.

There was a lovely collection of art by King Monkton School in Cardiff. Both creepy and beautiful.

Although that one wont glow in the dark so it will be significantly less cool!

  1. […] It was great to see so many amazing makers under one roof and a good few familiar faces to have a chin wag with. In my effort to take on less this year I didn’t apply and last year I was living it up in Paris with the European Etsy Captains Summit, so my last time there was when I exhibited in 2015, which I’ll be honest is a bit of a blur, but I did blog about it here!
