Crafted by Hand(s)


Just a quick post today to remind you all to get on down to Masham this Sunday for Crafted by Hand at the town hall. This fantastic one day art market will be showcasing the cream of British artists and makers, and is a perfect opportunity to start (or continue) your Christmas shopping. As well as stalls to peruse, you can also enjoy some tasty homemade refreshments from the onsite cafe, and even try your hand at stone carving, blacksmithing, ceramics and more. Artists/Makers involved include:

Janis Goodman (printmaking)

Vinegar and Brown Paper (glass)

Charlotte Morrison (ceramics)

Elizabeth Shurrock (Bookbinding)

And many more...

On top of all that, you will be greeted upon entry by a rather 'handy' papercut installation, inspired by the many artistic disciplines on display, made by me! As my very first installation, I can't wait to see it in place, and I hope visitors to Crafted by hand will enjoy looking at it as much as I've enjoyed making it.

The installation explores the multitude of skills represented at the event, as well as taking design inspiration from my favourite aspect of Masham town hall, the wallpaper. You'll understand when you see it!

So don't forget - Sunday, Masham Town Hall, 10am to 4pm, and only £1.50 admission. How can you resist?
