Parkgatefest 2018

May 23, 2018

With two sets of ceramics now passed under the watchful eye of the kiln fire-godesses (and survived intact), I can now start to think about where and how to sell my growing ceramic menagerie. I’ve teamed up with a good school friend Sarah, who is also a ceramist and works under the name of Sllipblog and we are taking a stall at the fairly new Parkgatefest on the 2nd and 3rd of June over at Parkgate on the Wirral.

Getting here using sat nav, the postcode for you to enter is CH64 6RD, ParkgateFest is situated off Boathouse Lane, in Parkgate, this is easily accessed from the A540. The site is on the land adjacent to Marsh Nurseries.

I’ll be taking a mixture of flat wall hanging ceramics like these birds…

As well as some birds that are a little more 3D lol

My friend Sarah over at Sllipblog, creates a beautiful range of sheep, shepherdesses and guardian angels, like these…

wonderful textures, designs and no two the same.

If the weather stays as amazing as it has been it should be a fantastic weekend. Last year was Parkgatefests first year and they had over 5000 people through their gates ! Let’s hope it’s as busy this year too ! Do pop the dates in your diary, spread the word and say hello to us on the stand if you get there too. If you’re interested in buying any of the items above, then drop me a line before they appear in the show. I’ve a few items already here on Etsy and more to join them soon. This little chap was one of the first to leave the ceramic creations and is now on it’s way to Northumberland.. Yay!

Hope you’re all enjoying this warm spell : )

    Best of luck and success to both of you. I think your work is quite charming and I’m especially drawn to the bird vases. (BTW – I’m a ceramic artist/teacher from across the pond. So, my opinion may actually have no value whatsoever.)
