I'm keeping my Christmas Show schedule a bit more manageable this year, rather than the usual traipsing all over the country! First up is the Westonbirt Charity Fair on 23rd and 24th October. Proceeds go towards seven very deserving charities, including Marie Curie, a local Hospice and Gloucester's Intensive Care Unit. You can find out more details including booking tickets here.
The Festival of Nature is the UK's biggest free celebration of the natural world, and I'm taking part in the Bristol Festival 9th - 10th June 2018. It's completely free, full of amazing workshops, interactive activities and a nature focused art market, which is where I'm turning up! The Festival is a platform for people of all ages and backgrounds to see the places that we call home in a different way, and to better understand how nature impacts our lives, health and wellbeing. It's open on Bristol's waterfront on Saturday 10-6, and Sunday 10-5, and I'd love to see you there! Click the photo for more info.
My next live event is a Design Led Lifestyle event hosted in the beautiful tourist town of Stratford Upon Avon. The event runs on 7th July in the Town Hall 10-4, click the photo for more info.
My final (so far!) event of the summer that I'm turning up in is an exhibition at The Old Mayor's Parlour on Hereford's historic Church Street. The exhibition runs from 9th June until 9th August and is open every Tuesday to Saturday, 9.30-5.
My 5th promotion with ACHICA starts today! It's the only place you can still buy prints as sets of three exclusively, plus lots of other discounted goodies :)
Due to exhibiting at this beautiful event for the first time in the Newcomer's Market, (eek!) I've got bundles of tickets to give away!
You can either win general admission tickets or late night shopping tickets for the Thursday evening. There are a few ways you can win them. Just follow on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and comment to let me know what type of ticket you'd prefer.
I look forward to meeting you there!
(The Country Living Magazine Spring Show runs 16th - 20th March 2016. Prize is for admission tickets only, not transport or accommodation. Winners will be picked out of a hat and notified by the 2nd week in March. The hats decision is final!)
Really rather chuffed to turn up on the front page of the Spirit Boutique Christmas Gift Guide in partnership with House and Garden magazine (not to mention be featured inside as well!) If you'd like a browse, just click the pic below.
Next weekend, I'll be taking part in this fab Bristol market! Pop down, say hi and browse some beautiful design-led gifts. It might be the weekend of Black Friday, but rise above the high street craziness and support small.
I'll be attending:
28th-29th November 11am-5pm
12th-13th December 11am-5pm
You can see all the event details here.
In their own words:
Get ready for Bristol’s biggest independent Christmas market!
It’s a FREE event and a perfect day out to bring your friends and family.
On November 28th we are launching an action packed Christmas market, bringing you up to 100 brilliant stalls, a programme of live music, mulled drinks, entertainment, comfy seating with cosy blankets, fire pits, live art from Upfest, a special guest from Aardmann Animations and much more… Not to mention the real ice Ice Rink, brought to us by At-Bristol Science Centre in Millennium Square.
The market runs along the Bristol’s beautiful waterfront, from the cascade Steps (by the Watershed), through Anchor Square (next the Aquarium) and around the Ice Rink in Millennium Square. At the heart of the market is our brilliant traders, the best local artisans, creators, designer-makers, producers, street food and experiential stalls.
Finally don’t forget to get your skates on and visit Bristol city centre’s With tickets starting from £5 and discounts available on At-Bristol and Ice Rink tickets, the Harbourside really will provide a whole day out for all the family!

London friends! And anyone else interested, I'll be at the Embankment Summer Market this weekend (held in Victoria Embankment Gardens.) Come and say hi! Last year I accidentally coordinated with my stall... It's an ace design/food/music festival organised by City Showcase all for free!
You don't have to take my word for it - Time Out and The Evening Standard have lovely things to say, amongst plenty of other press:
"This three-day sales spectacular brings together some of the brightest and most talented artists, artisans and fashion designers around."
"The distinctly glamorous Embankment Summer Market is a unique, must-go event in a wonderfully scenic location on the Northbank of the Thames between Embankment Station and the Royal Courts of Justice and Somerset House."
Come and say hi this weekend :)
If you're a member of luxury lifestyle store ACHICA, you might just see a familiar face on there at the mo! They're running a promo of my products starting today until Monday. They also describe me as "the highly collectable artist." Snigger!
If you're a member of online luxury lifestyle store Casafina, you might just spot a familiar face on there today! A week long promotion of inky animal goodness starts..... now! (Although I do think Meet the Maker sounds a little ominous!)
A general creative gun for hire!
