Parkgatefest 2018

June 4, 2018

Hello everyone on this sunny Monday morning. I’m just freshly returned from a weekend at Parkgatefest, which was a fabulous event, although sadly not in terms of sales. My friend Sarah who I was exhibiting with and who runs Sllipblog, had designed and created such an amazing stand for us to display our ceramics on, she’s got a real eye for design and detail, it looked like this.

Her work is beautiful and a mix of sheep, guardian angels and shepherdesses. If something catches your eye, she sells direct through her Instagram site here. I’d imagine she’ll soon be taking orders for Christmas angels as well as the guardian angels she makes all year round.

They are stunning, don’t you think.

Such expression in her lovely characters too.

My half of the stall looked like this. I’m also selling some pieces through Etsy and Instagram, please ask for prices if you see anything you like.

I had a range of original artwork too and the cat, dog and bird cards which did prove a popular choice.

There was a range of other craft stalls like these great bags created in Burma for design company Mowgs.

Pretty, functional and recycled plastic… great values.

The tribute bands were really great, including among others Queen, Take That, Tom Jones and the amazing Temptations. Steam, football tricks, rides for the kids and a wealth of choice of great food and drink and all for a day ticket of £10.. (kids get in free) I’ll definitely be going again.

Sunday was the best weather and was glorious all day. Hope you enjoyed your weekend. Do let me know your thoughts on the ceramics too.
