What a fantastic event the Saltaire Arts Trail, which finished today, was! I was taking part for the first time as a maker, as part of the Makers’ Fair, and it was a well-run, well-attended event – approximately 6,500 people visited the Makers’ Fair over the three days. That’s a pretty healthy footfall…
I love doing craft fairs. I love the chat with the customers, and the camaraderie and networking with the other makers; and it is a little sad when the fair is over. It’s a cup of tea and a long bath tonight, then starting on an order of 48 bowls tomorrow. That’s the best thing of all, sitting at my wheel with a pile of carefully weighed out clay on my left hand side.
