TOBY’S GARDEN FESTIVAL
This will be our first time at this popular event, held at the historic site of POWDERHAM CASTLE overlooking the River Exe about 6 miles south of Exeter. It is home to the Courtenays, Earls of Devon and is well worth a visit at any time.
Our stand will be in the Artisan Barn in the company of many other amazing artists and craftspeople and will be held on Friday 29th April and Saturday 30th April, between 10am and 5pm.
We’ve been invited to join this group of highly talented and creative artists and makers for their event at Torrington Castle Community Centre, Torrington, EX38 8AA on Saturday 14th May between 10am and 4pm. We feel honoured and excited to be joining them there, and hope you can come and join us too. Stands will be indoors and in the gardens, with live music and fresh food available, so it sounds as if it could be fun.
Every year, we love being at the events held in this exciting venue, situated in a beautiful garden setting and is for anyone interested in high quality handmade arts and crafts.
The events are held in the Garden Room which has lovely views over the gardens and excellent refreshments available just across the courtyard in their restaurant at very reasonable prices.
Our first event here this year will be at the Craft Fair running from Friday 24th June to Sunday 26th June. It is part of the Rose Weekend, so the emphasis will be on floral themes.
Then later in the year, we’ll be here again from Friday 1st December to Sunday 3rd December. For us, there’s a bonus to being here then: not only do we get to meet up with some wonderful makers, but we can do some shopping of our own!
EXETER CRAFT FESTIVAL
This amazing event has taken place in the beautiful surroundings of Exeter’s Cathedral Green for over 40 years.
The tented ‘village’ becomes home to 100 or more artists and makers, some of them demonstrating their skills, over 3 days in July. There are also entertainers and food stalls on hand to feed the body as well as the senses. All in all, this is an event not to be missed.
The dates to put in your diary are Thursday July 7th (10.00 – 5.30), Friday July 8th (9.30 – 5.30),and Saturday July 9th (9.30 – 5.00).
This year we will be taking part in Devon Open Studios, a county-wide event held in mid-September. This will give you the chance to see where we work and get our inspiration and, of course, buy our work directly from us.
This event will run from Saturday 10th to Sunday 25th September; we’ll post our opening times and dates here shortly.
