So it's been a while. I'm attempting to make this blog regular again.
This autumn/winter, I took part in two art markets that were in the beautiful Leeds Corn Exchange.
I hadn't done art market stalls in a long while and I remembered why I love it so much- the atmosphere, the buzz when you make a sale, speaking with fellow stallholders, sharing tips and advice.. I always finish an art market feeling very inspired.
I did two weekends- one run by UniqueGiftFairs on the 15&16 November, and the massive Showcase Spectacular, run by the JuJu Agency on the 22&23 November.
Unique Gift Fairs:
I did this fair with my friend Sapphia, who does beautiful oil pastel drawings/prints. There were many beautiful stalls at this small, but great event.
Myself with my share of the table.
My cushions and greetings cards.

This was the first art market where I've done a stall all by myself. It was very daunting, pretty nerve-wracking, but so worth it. Luckily I had a table next to Nicola Hanrahan who I've met at a similar art market before, and a couple more of my friends were involved in the event, so I was glad to have familiar faces with me!
This event was brilliant. There was art stalls, exhibitions, performance art, live music, and even a visit from a lovely owl. I sold out of almost all of my cushions, and my woodland prints went down a treat! I was also able to bring my latest product to this table- my geometric screen-printed tea towels.

The new tea towels- 100% cotton, screen-printed, with a recycled card sleeve.
The fairs were so much fun, and I intend to do a lot more from the next year. I have many ideas of new things I want to try, and new products I want to make! All the latest will be updated right here.
