Made By Hand Cheltenham.

 


It has taken me a little while to write about being part of the new show Made By Hand Cheltenham, organised by the brilliant team behind The Contemporary Craft Festival http://www.madebyhandengland.org.uk/

Helped by my lovely husband, we had quite a stressful journey to Cheltenham, the weather was awful and there was an accident on the M5. But the stress disappeared as we were greeted and directed to our pre-timed unloading spot. there were even porters to help carry in boxes. We unloaded, and armed with a drill we set about assembling the display.
A really welcoming cup of tea and friendly neighbours meant that set up was done by about 7pm.  I resisted further tweaking. So onward to our Purple Palace, what my hubby calls the Premier Inn.
The next day after a good night's sleep and a lovely breakfast, I walked down to the town hall. Last night I hadn't realised how beautiful the building was and the work on display, just amazing.
 

It was a fabulous two days, with brilliant fellow makers, customers and visitors.

I was also  thrilled to be featured in a lovely interiors blog called Home Relish

We also came home with a new member of the family, thanks to the superb Fauxdermy https://fauxidermy.co.uk/
Meet Hartley, who will always remind us of a brilliant event.

I have heard that the event will continue next year, so hopefully I may see you there, it is well worth a visit.
