Some musings on our life in Suffolk and beyond.

Markets!

Edwin Mitchell-Finch

This weekend you’ll find us at our penultimate fair, Fresh Artisan Market in Norwich. We are with over 50 makers in the Old Shoe Factory on St Mary’s Plain on Oak Street in Norwich and it will be a Festive affair with wonderful independent makers with unique gifts! Friday kicks off with an evening market from 5-9pm and then Saturday & Sunday 10-4pm. Come and have some great food and drink and soak up some Christmas cheer!

Following that we are in Aldeburgh at the old Stables on Saxmundham Road near Planet Pot, from the 18-23 December.
A host of brilliant makers selling textiles, prints, ceramics, jewellery, bags and art. Come and check us out for those last minute presents, shop independent this year!!

It’s March already and next month we are at our first fair of the year find out where we will be in our events section!

We haven’t been idle though, new brooches have been made based on tattoos, technology and gardens, and some new designs are going into the Norwich Castle Museum shop, they are based on the Norfolk Shawl Industry and the paisley designs that decorate the fabric!

FolkEast & beyond!

FolkEast festival fell over three days mid August at Glemham Hall Suffolk and was, as always great fun, but a lot of hard work.

How can you feel so tired when all you’ve done is put your stall together and then stood and chatted, explained the ins and outs of free machine embroidery or tin can nib pens and hopefully sold your work to all of the interested customers that wander in and out of the brilliant Art Marquee!!

If you’ve never been then let me whet your appetite with all of the different arts and crafts that are going on, you will find prints, paintings, paper cutting, stained glass, ceramics, jewellery, instrument makers as well as vintage stalls, knitting, crochet and felting! 

Many of these stalls hold daily workshops so no one is miserable or bored and if it’s food and music you’re interested in then you are so spoilt for choice.

We absolutely love the festival and it’s one of the highlights of our year find out more by going to www.folkeast.co.uk

In September we took part in our first Open Studios Art Trail as part of Old Dairy Studios in Beccles.

Over a week 13 artists opened up there work places and welcomed the public in! We kicked off with the Private view at the studios in Beccles, feedback was great and a good weekend followed with a quieter week, still it’s a learning curve and you can always tweek things for up and coming events, on the whole we all felt that it was well worth doing!

Towards the end of September I was asked to do the Reach Festival near Cambridge. It’s a wonderful traditional village with the pub, village hall and Church right at it’s heart.

The village green was a hive of activity with stallholders setting up. An eclectic mix of makers were there on what was thankfully a dry sunny but rather windy day. 
Apart from having to hang on to my gazebo occasionally I had a very pleasant day of appreciative comments and sales.

It’s been a busy few weeks of stitching, making, painting  and updating the web site shop, if you have a gander you will find new fruit, veg, moths and button brooches plus watch out for the Christmas section to be up dated!!

Ahead there are a few up and coming fairs which you will find in our events section, if you happen to be close to any of those it would be great to meet you and say hello.

Thanks for reading!!
