Well, I had a great day at the first Auckland Art & Craft Fair on saturday!
This is the Artists Book. It was very cool to see things I've made in print! Its a lovely book, full of all the info on the artist's who participated, and some great photos of their work.
This is just after the doors were opened. There were so many people throughout the day, which was so great to see.
My table was infront of a huge window, so loads of natural light. I managed to hang a few dolls in the window too, to create some interest for people walking past. Various opinions were expressed about the dolls, which was fun. People see different things in them - sometimes thinking they remind them of someone they know, or that they look like they are from a certain time or place.
But the highlight for me, was meeting the beautiful Melissa from Tiny Happy. This is a Queen Anne's lace needlebook made by Melissa, with hand embroidered wool, wool felt and Liberty lawn.
The embroidery is so delicate, this photo does not do it justice!
Isn't the Liberty lining gorgeous?! Melissa also sneaked this gorgeous wee clover brooch into my bag - thank you so much!
Thank you also to Kylie, Jess and everyone who came along to support us, it was such a great day - and a thrill to hear so much positivity surrounding handmade.x
