Last Sunday was the start of the British Craft Trade Fair in Harrogate! This was my first foray into the world of trade fairs and had no idea what to expect.
Apart from aching feet (!), I thoroughly enjoyed meeting exhibitors and buyers who felt the same as I do about handmade and British craft. There were so any exhibitors who create such beautiful pieces, ranging from jewellery to ceramics to embroidery to upcycled items to prints of artwork - there was so much to look at! I certainly don't envy the buyers trying to choose!
I've met some wonderful designer/makers to keep in touch with, as well as buyers interested in my work. So watch this space, SWD jewellery may be appearing in a gallery or shop near you....I'll keep you posted!
