Cornwall Design Fair 2014

It was the second time I had exhibited at the Cornwall Design Fair at the weekend.  The event took place at Trereife House near Penzance showcasing quality craft work from the county & around the UK.  Last year this was the first fair I exhibited at since moving to Cornwall - how time flies!  Thankfully it was not too hot as marquees can get a little steamy!  The variety & excellent standard of the exhibitors made for a great show.  I shall be making a note of next year's event in my diary...

I thought I would try a 'woodland theme' this time with some birch effect wallpaper - it almost looked like fabric.
Bird pieces were popular with visitors.

After a busy previous week I managed to complete some new seaweed piece in time for the show...

Limpets were my most popular jewellery...

I also had some pieces in Trereife House as part of the 'Curated Design' display

Art & Craft Exhibition Cape Cornwall School

Today we've been out of St Ives to set up a display for the forthcoming annual Art & Craft Exhibition at Cape Cornwall School in St Just.  This event has been running for many years & raises funds for Cancer Research UK.  Talking to some of the helpers today to seems that it takes 12 months to organise & I'm not surprised when you see the number of exhibitors! We visited last year as customers & thought it would be good to take part this time.

Although the space is quite small I've managed to squeeze a good selection of work out (as usual)! I've had to be a little inventive with the display as I am showing at the Cornwall Design Fair later this month & need most of my display props for that!  I had some unused (as yet!) box canvases so these have been good stands to present the jewellery...

The event opens on 6th August until 22nd August
10am - 9pm so you can still visit after work/after the beach!

I rather like this cat mural on the school wall....

Lots of exhibitors were still to set up when we left...
I'll take more pics during the show
