The Living Arts and Crafts Fair

I was given the opportunity to have a stall at The Living Arts and Crafts Fair, May 9th-12th, in Hertfordshire.

My Stall

I was in Marquee I, 'The Emerging Designer Makers’ Marquee. I had a fantastic time because I got to meet some great people, customers and fellow stallholders and the editors of Craft & Design Magazine, of which I’m featured in. It’s a beautiful magazine and has lots of great coverage of art events going on across the UK.

I learnt about future art events I can get involved in and tips from other veteran stallholders. I love what I do and I’m passionate about the process I use to create my work. This is the first art fair I have done and it has given me even more enthusiasm to get my work seen and make a living from it after receiving so much positive feedback.

Throughout the four days in Hertfordshire I did demonstrations showing the public how I created all my images. This inspired people to get creative and make artwork of their own.

 Here are some of the greetings cards being made in preparation for the art fair. 


Now I’m looking at selling my work at more art fairs.
