I’m at the Artisans in the Palmhouse event at Sefton Park, Liverpool this Friday evening and all day Saturday, 27th and 28th November.
Craft Fairs and Events are part and parcel of working for yourself. It’s a wonderful opportunity to be able to meet other stall holders to network and connect with. It’s also a chance to check that your work is up to standard, that the quality of your presentation is top notch and also fire ideas off each other.
I adore attending artisan fairs, the buzz, the creativity and the food!! I love being a vendor at artisan fairs. If its a fair that you respect and that you have to apply for and you get in, well that is a great confidence booster, you know you’re doing something right.
Nearer the day it can be hectic, traumatic and nerve wracking while everything is prepared. It can be difficult not to feel overwhelmed by the amount of boxes to be ticked – and most of the stall holders will have other work as well
So this post from the Design Trust on getting organised was incredibly helpful
There is a huge amount of advice for those who feel like there is a small woman hitting top c in their head for the week before a fair- it’s great and exactly what you need so that you’re not only prepared but relaxed and can even have some fun.
We’re going to have some kits for sale, hand dyed fibre and yarn and new for this fair, hand dyed hand spun tapestry threads. And of course I’ll be spinning- all day! ( What a treat) So please, if you’re able to get there it’s always nice to see familiar faces.
See you next time
