Carlisle Art Fair

Today (Saturday) and tomorrow (is it too obvious to put 'Sunday' here?) is the first 'Carlisle Art Fair'. Held in The Sands centre, a rather nice roomy venue with lots of light' centrally based in the City and with good parking right outside.

Hubster was going with his marbles, so I thought I'd tag along and help him sell them.

When I got there there was a couple of no show exhibitors leaving some empty tables. So I cut a deal and blagged them for myself & within half an hour Hubster had rushed home to pick up my stock & I had my stall set up.

Daddy L offered to watch it for a little while whilst I had a wander around the other exhibits.

Let me share a few with you, click on the links which will take you to their own websites.

A lovely lady that does the most wonderful small art pieces on.......... TEABAGS! 

Some fabulous glassy goodness.

The most amazing sculptures, so much detail you need to see them in the flesh.

Some wonderful wall hung and ornamental ceramics.

Really clever & unusual wooden clocks.

Loads of fabulous art works, including these from Oliver Pearson. Breath-taking pieces of work.

Handmade books & cleverly folder book art.

Instrument making! The smell of planed wood is delicious, don't you think?

Ceramics and general prettyness.

Come and watch Irene paint a lifelike Collie dog. Such skill.

Or watch Peter working on his wonderful hand driven sewing machine using reclaimed materials.

But hey, don't take my word for it about how good this show is, come on down and see for yourself, I've only featured a very small amount of actual stalls in this post. 

10.00-4.00 Sunday (remember to come and say Hi :) )
