It’s that time of year again when Justin and I head off to deepest darkest Devon for the wonderful Contemporary Craft Fair in Bovey Tracey. This year we’re quite excited to be camping in our little campervan for the event. (And the nipper is with her granny so it’s a true weekend away together!) I’m hoping the show will be fruitful and there’ll be time and money for a few spends as there are some truly amazing things to take home….and plenty of room in the van….

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

Beautiful drawing in 3D by Celia Smith and I thought stitching oyster catchers was hard!
