The Handmade Fair - Bowood 2018

This was the first year that The Handmade Fair went to Bowood, Wiltshire. We didn't really know what to expect, in terms of the location, amount of guests, type of guest, everything really! We are pleased to say we had an amazing experience. By far and away the most picturesque place to have a fair in the sprawling grounds of Bowood house. The sun was shining and it was a glorious weekend. What we really enjoyed about this fair was also that there was so many other makers, who were incredibly supportive of one another. I met lovely people on the stands and guests. It was also great to meet so many visitors, many being makers themselves and receiving their feedback on our products and stand. I was also undertaking bespoke calligraphy on the stand. Basically, we loved it. So much so that we have already signed up for next year. We will have a slightly larger stand and running short gilding workshops from our stand. If you didn't make it this year, be sure to come down next year and if we met you this year, we look forward to seeing you again in 2019!

We will be participating in The Handmade Fair, Hampton Court in September for those who are London based. Be sure to come visit us.
