Still busy this week with sorting cards and prints for the craft fair at The Mill tomorrow 9th December 11-5pm The Mill is at 7-11 Coppermill Lane, Walthamstow, London E17 7HA (Google Maps.
Waltham Forest Arts Club is also having a stall there with a number of artists work, and there will be knitwear, jewellry and cakes. I do actually like looking round craft fairs myself, there are a growing number of fairs and events and a vitality about crafts in general which is good to see.
Funnily enough, though not good for artists/craftspeople like myself, lots of mass produced craft type goods are much more expensive than our hand made items. I'm not sure when the change took place or whether it has been a slow move to seeing industrial goods as better than handmade craft goods. Or maybe companies are just good at marketing their products.
On Saturday 10th December Ruth will be at the London Buddhist Centre pop up shop with my cards, prints, paintings and other items with Stavarha and Lokadhi. Stavarha is bringing cards and prints from her great photographs and Lokadhi is bringing some of her drawings. The shop is open 11-7.30pm. 51 Roman Road E2 0HU I will be there for the the last part of the day after a workshop with Courtney and other healers.
