The Great Northern


Last weekend I was exhibiting at the 'Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair' in Spinningfields, Manchester. It was my first time as an exhibitor after visiting for the past 4 or 5 years. It was great to do a local show and I was able to make lots of new contacts. 

The organisers of the Great Northern have been running 'Little Northern' shows in schools across Cheshire. They feature a selection of the Great Northern artists in one day events. The next Little Northern is at Altrincham Grammar School for Boys on 8th December... So if you missed the Great Northern or just fancy picking up some more Christmas shopping, it's definitely not one to be missed!


Take a look at my other upcoming shows on the following page: /upcomingevents/ I've got a busy few months ahead!

Some of the other exhibitors who's work and stands I loved: 


Kate creates 3D illustrations of birds using paper. I just had to give one of her fun and quirky owls a new home.

Jill Shaddock
I've admired Jill's ceramics for quite some time. Also based in Manchester she slip-casts in layers to create beautiful simple forms.

Suet Yi Ceramics

Suet Yi graduated in the year above me and her colourful ceramics have always fascinated me... I'm developing quite a collection!
