Artidora

Artidora was born from my love for nature and art. I am a positive person. I have always seen the beauty in everything around me. I am fascinated by the way the nature mixes the colours to amaze us every day. From the bright pink of spring to the winters white and black, the seasons have been an inspiration for my art. Although I do ...

Cheryl Donlon Art

Iím inspired by everyday life and people but growing up in South Africa has given me a love of strong, vibrant colours which dominate my work.

The TINY Soap Lab

Just over a year ago, our family uprooted and moved to the quintessentially English village of Finchingfield, surrounded by beautiful Essex countryside. Together, we decided to combine our creativity and set about learning a whole new set of skills. Making our first batch of handmade soap was a revelation and we immediately fell in ...

Anchorhaven Pop Up Crystal Shop Wirral

We completed our very first crystal pop up shop at Soul Kraft Community shop in Rock Ferry, Tranmere, Wirral. Anchorhaven have rented display space for crystals from Soul Kraft for a few months and are very fortunate to have an in-store crystal display to reach local customers. Soul Kraft dont open Saturdays very often, so the Saturday pop up shop was an excellent opportunity to spend time in-store and be available to chat about crystals ...

The first of hopefully many... Fabulous

Two Daft Birds set out on our fist Craft Fair. It took place in Romsey Town Hall on Saturday 24th July. On arrival the staff were fantastic, really helpful and so informative. We were upstairs in the main hall and thankful for the lift but to be honest it was so slow that it was quicker to climb the 2 flights. The day started with a plan that changed into many , moving items around the tabes for the general public to catch the interest ...

Two local artist friends caught in the isolation

Janet and I have been friends for many years..through thick and thin and when , like others, we were closed down in our homes there was only one thing to do...Art ! I , alone and Jan with her amazing glass studio decided to have a go at watercolour painting. As a person who is working I had to take the bull by the horns and experiment whilst Jan took lessons. Her production of her paintings were incredible and I learnt from her free ...

Double Chocolate Crunchie Brownies

Wow! If I told you these were gluten free you wouldnít believe me! Packed full of rich chocolate, classic crunchie honeycomb, and chocolate chunks! After making these, trying them myself and even surprising myself! I brought them to a family event, kept quiet that they were in fact gluten free! Numerous family members exclaimed how lush they were! Once they were all gone I let it slip they were gluten free! Since then I have played ...

Scratching the Surface of my Business

Starting out my business has been a steep learning curve which I imagine lots of small businesses would say. Designing my own products with the ideas in my head really expose my inner most insecurities. I love designing, showing the world my designs has been liberating, scary and massively rewarding all at once. My design process always starts with the research I love looking for and being inspired by objects, places, exhibitions, ...

New Crafter advice please

Hi. Iím completely new to this site and have recently started creating quirky Planters with personality. It has kept me sane during lockdown and I just love creating these ladies - giving each one its own personality. They make everyone that sees them smile and that makes me so happy. Ive seen nothing like them anywhere and did my first craft fair today which was a huge success so Iím hoping to start doing lots more this year. I will ...

Hedgehogs

We do not want to imagine a future, where a young British writer and illustrator looks around them for inspiration from the animal world but there is little to see. When Beatrix Potter created a character called Mrs. Tiggy-winkle she based it on her pet hedgehog. However, these popular native creatures are struggling to survive and have declined by about 50 percent in the last thirty years. Are we doing our bit to make life a little ...

Neoplasticism

Piet Mondrian was born in the Netherland but lived in Paris, London and New York. He co-founded De Stijl and created the artistic style of Neoplasticism. The pieces of art had no frame. This is because the person viewing the work should not see it as complete but continues beyond the canvas. Eventually he reduced his work down to three primary colours of blue, red and yellow and horizontal and vertical lines. However, even with ...

River scribbles

We are lucky to live near the River Severn, the somewhat famous bend in the River called the Horseshoe. This gives us plenty of inspiration for sketches, paintings and ideas to bring back to the studio. Our walks have us viewing the river in different weather and seasons and although it is beautiful when the air is calm and colours are sharp, I do love it when the sky is threatening. The River takes on different moods and the colours ...

The UK is without doubt one of the most creative and diverse places on Earth.

The talent of makers and artists needs a vent, a channel that allows both new and experienced people the chance to market and sell their work. They also need to network with their peers to exchange ideas and experiences. The craft fair can be that channel. It challenges people, it inspires and motivates people to do better and more.

Supporting your local craft fairs as a visitor and purchaser, helps to grow the community and encourage further creative, social and community wealth.
