'Wonderfully Made' - Silkstone Winter Art and Craft Exhibition

As you may be aware, made by lolly x had a stall at the recent Silkstone Art and Craft Exhibition. I had such a lovely time here that I thought I might share some of my photo's with you!

The venue was the beautiful All Saints Church and the exhibition ran from Wednesday night until Saturday teatime. The church was filled with about 30 stalls of beautiful handcrafted works from many different disciplines - the tag line on all of the marketing read 'wonderfully made' and that statement could not have been more true!

It was an absolute honour to have been invited to show my work alongside such amazing artists and makers, and I am pleased to report I made many new friends!

 This is how my corner stall looked at 3 o'clock on Wednesday when I had finished setting up!
(It didn't stay looking like this for long!)

The event was curated by Rachel Poole - whose stained glass window is featured at the top of the page -  and was fantastically organised. All purchases were sold through a central till ensuring that all of the stall holders didn't have to stay for the whole time. Each of us took it in turns to help out, choosing to patrol the aisles, sell raffle tickets, meet and greet, or pack and wrap. My turn was on Saturday, and I had been allotted the stewards role. This was brilliant as I got to talk to lots of lovely customers, and take some photos of my new friends stalls!

Unfortunately, I couldn't take pictures of everyone's stalls to share with you, but I would definitely also recommend checking out Codger Bags, Our Little Craft Company, and Sabine Little!
