Contemporary Craft Festival 2012

It was my fifth year at Bovey Tracey for the Contemporary Craft Festival and as has been the case in recent years it was a wet show, but… wasn’t as bad as it might have been – in fact the sun shone for much of the Friday and on and off the rest of the weekend in between the rain.

The crowds didn’t stay away and it was a really good weekend. There were a great number of new makers, but sadly I didn’t get around to walking round with my camera taking photographs, but highlights for me included mosaics by¬†Cleo Mussi, acrylic jewellery by Stephanie Hamer, ceramics by Suet Yi Yip and wire sculpture and wall drawings by Celia Smith.

My stand showed my new papercuts and clocks and some new panels using a bit more colour.

My flowers from Simply Flowers in Bovey Tracey were commented on by many and are always a favourite part of my building of my stand. This time I got to combine my favourite peonies with the wonderful eringium (sea holly) that I always use.
