Bovey Tracey – The Contemporary Craft Festival: a little preview

Ceramics and more from Katrin Moye

Both Mr D and I will be packing up the bus and heading to sunny (we hope!) Devon on Thursday for the wonderful Contemporary Craft Festival. It’s the one event that we both take part in so could loosely be categorised as a weekend away together….very loosely!

I am hoping to get a chance to leave the stand (it’s a very busy show so we’ll see) so I can take some snaps for a post event write up but in case I don’t manage it I’ve had a little browse through the exhibitor listings and put together some personal highlights.

It’s an amazing show, one of the best in the country with fantastic exhibitors, lovely food, great entertainment for kids and demonstrations and workshops throughout the day for kids and grown ups alike.

If I hadn’t got the bag to end all bags last year from Melissa Simpson I’d be in trouble at Wolfram Lohr’s stand
