Next up was the National Festival of Making in Blackburn. A weekend of creative activities, music, food, street performers, demonstrations, workshops, art installations and much much more. I was showcasing my work in the Makers Fair and picked up an award from the Crafts Council as ‘one to watch’. I’m thrilled.
May was host to two big Maker Fairs this year. Firstly Saltaire Inspired, an Arts Trail and Craft Fair with over 70 amazing artist, crafters, designers and makers showcasing their work. This was my first year traiding at Saltaire and I had a great time. It’s a chance to talk to customers and get valuable feedback.
