Summer events.

27 February, 2023 – 9:06 am

This year, I have a full schedule of events.

In order to spend time with my family I chose to start doing events in my home county, being self-employed means that I can’t just shut, so I take my business on the road.

My year starts with a 4 day market in the beautiful St Mary’s Art Centre in Sandwich. This will be open over the Easter weekend, 7th,8th,9th and 10th April.

April 29th, 30th & 1st May, Ash Church Art exhibition, TBC

Then comes National Mills Weekend 13th/14th May, at the White Mill in Sandwich, I will be demonstrating and giving you the opportunity to come and have a go at stone carving.

I have an exciting new venue for the 27th May, I have been invited to demonstrate and give you the opportunity to come and have a go at stone carving as part of the Pilgrim’s Trail, you explore the Medieval sites in Dover and end up at the Maison Dieu, where you will find me. The Maison Dieu in it’s original form was a stopover point for pilgrims on their way to the tomb of Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. it later became a victualling warehouse for Henry VIII’s navy and then a town gaol and courthouse. The building is currently undergoing restoration and I am looking forward to getting involved in it’s future.

3rd June, Eastry Community fun day, TBC.

I love taking part in events hosted by the Sandwich Medieval Trust and this year is no exception. Not only will I be setting up in my Trader’s tent again.

August 2022

But I will also be working inside the centre as part of the South East Open studios. 5th-9th June inside the centre, then outside for Le Weekend Medieval encampment 10th/11th June, then back inside from the 14th -17th June. 10am-4pm.

These photos were taken in October 2022 when I spent 4 days with the centre, demonstrating and letting people come and have a go. That’s Steve the blacksmith, making me some chisels.

My next event is the Staple Country Fayre, my home village. I will be demonstrating and selling some of my hand carved creations.

There’s also the August Bank Holiday weekend at the Sandwich medieval centre when I will be back in my trader’s tent, what comes after this has yet to be discovered.

I look forward to seeing you at one or all of these exciting events.

  2. Carrie – You inspire! I plan to visit one of your events in Kent, as soon as health permits. Your remark about carving as a coping mechanism during Covid stress struck a chord. My beginner-level wood whittling is therapeutic too. Well done in establishing a business: I hope it prospers.
