I am having great fun getting out and about meeting new people and demonstrating my craft

Yorkley Fun day 2021

Last year’s day out at the Yorkley fun day reminded me how much I like to get out and about and meet people. This year I wanted to visit my family in Kent more but this would mean closing my shop so I have joined the two together and booked almost all my events this year in Sandwich in Kent.

My first event over the Easter weekend and was a medieval market in the beautiful St Mary’s Church in Sandwich in Kent. It was organised by the Sandwich medieval trust and it was great to be surrounded by so many other traditional crafts. I worked extra hard in the run up to this event to create a whole new range of carvings. On the way back to the Forest of Dean I visited a quarry near Maidstone in Kent to collect my Kentish ragstone so I could carve a set of my ever popular letters in local stone.

After this weekend I left 5 of my carvings for an exhibition at Ash Church over the May bank holiday and thanks to my parents for delivering and collecting my carvings as I couldn’t return for this events.

I returned on May the 9th for National Mills Weekend and I was at The White Mill in Sandwich demonstrating and selling some of my creations. I am working on a capital featuring 4 medieval type figures on the corners.

What a lovely Jubilee party at the Speech House Hotel in the heart of the Forest of Dean. I wasn’t demonstrating here so took the opportunity to wear a dress, which is rare opportunity for me.

My most recent event was a glorious weekend down at the Sandwich medieval Centre on the historic Quay. I had a super medieval tent and worked on my capital. I have made great progress and the figures are really starting to come to life.

I have met so many lovely people and have new customers to thank for helping to keep my small business successful. My year is still busy and my next two events are coming up so there will be more photos coming soon. Please keep an eye on my events and talks page for all the information.
