The Art Market

It's that time of year again when we step outside the snug workshop and take Sue's work to art and craft fairs. Last weekend, our first fair of six in the crazy run up to Christmas, we were at The Art Market in Holmfirth.

We love this fair as the standard of work is high and the range is so diverse.  Visitors come in droves and are really friendly and appreciative.  

Sue's tree decs went down a storm, so much so that she was up till midnight on Monday making 134 more for Art in Clay, Farnham which is on the 17th and 18th November.  

The red lantern range was pretty popular too, especially the salt and pepper sets and budvases (both now on Sue's making list for next week!).

It was really inspiring to spend the weekend with Brendan Hesmondhaigh and Samantha Bryan - 2 amazing artists I have huge admiration for.

Another 50 selected artists will be exhibiting and selling their work at the Holmfirth Art Market on Saturday 10th Nov between 8pm - 10pm and all day Sunday 11th 10 - 4pm.  It's definitely worth a visit!
