Only Two More Days till our Event!! Here's another Stall Holder....

Here's another Stall Holder for you, and it's a popular one from previous years, we welcome back FRANCES & GRACE, who create beautiful delicate bracelets using silver plated beads, Swavorski Crystal Charms, Shambala Charms and pretty findings.


This year the bracelets are displayed in gorgeous packaging to make the perfect Christmas Gift (although Karen and I must confess Gifting them is the last thing on our minds unless we're gifting them to ourselves lol!).

There is only two more days till our Event so be sure to pop it in your calendar.  We have a few more blog posts to cover on our Art on display and also the scrumptious food available, so be sure to check in again over the next two days to see what else is in store.

Floral Fancies at our Open Studio Event...

Let's say hi to another of our stall holders; WREN FLOWERS, .."a little bird told me" . They are a happy team of two florists with over 20 years experience between them.


Ana will be attending our Event and she will have a selection of wreaths and floral displays for your Christmas Festivities and you will also be able to place orders.
Last year I purchased a stunning door wreath from Ana very similar to the one shown below and received so many comments on it. Wren Flowers floristry has a lovely vintage twist to it which makes their displays have an edge about them.

Our Next Exhibitor.... Sarah Rickard

I am very excited about our next Exhibitor for our Open Studio Event, the super talented SARAH RICKARD. Sarah's work is inspired by nature and the birds, beasts, botany and beings which inhabit our world.

She is driven to create art which c...elebrates life and conveys a sense of wonder at nature's mysteries. Many pieces are wall hung but she also makes free standing pieces, plates, platters and art for the garden.

All of her work is unique but many are total one offs. Due to her busy Christmas Fair Schedule Sarah will be exhibiting her Angels, Moon Phase Hares and Ceramic Birds to take orders which will be with you in time for Christmas.

Say hello to another Stall Holder.....

 Lets welcome our next stall holder attending our Open Studio Event:

Karen and I first saw Maria's work at the Chiddingly Art Festival and fell in love with it, particularly the deep indigo bowls ...with heart motifs, so when we set about looking for stall holders for our Fair we knew we wanted Maria's work.

Maria has been a potter for over 30 years, she makes high fired stoneware which she decorates with her own mix of wood ash and coloured glazes. Each piece is unique and individual, glazed with high temperature stoneware glazes, Microwave, oven and dishwasher proof. Over the last few years she has started using words on her pottery and her most recent works includes The Four Seasons which are large bowls with words from different poets combined with images which she feels represent the seasons.
