It’s that time of year again, when makers far and wide gather up their most precious creations and descend on markets and pop-ups across the country to meet you - our lovely customers - face to face.
I’ve been up to my elbows in the clay the last few weeks (literally, as well as figuratively - I’m a messy maker) making lots of stock from my main collections, as well as squeezing in a little bit of time to make some special one-off and exclusive items just for markets.
I’ll be embarking on a whopping 5 weeks in a row of designer markets and maker pop-ups this winter, more than I’ve ever undertaken before. It’s slightly daunting but I can’t wait to get out there and see all your lovely faces, have a chat with shoppers and other makers alike, and hopefully even help you find the perfect gift for someone you love (including yourself!) as Christmas approaches. Nothing makes me happier than pairing someone up with the exact right thing for them or the person they’re buying for and seeing the joy that my work brings to their lives!
This winter you’ll find me at…
