New Beginnings and Inspiration ….

Last weekend I went to the National Photographic competiton on The Moor – Sheffield. It was fantastic. Photos of the clearest and most spectacular images from around the world. 

I also went to the Chesterfield Christams Market on Sunday. Sadly, although well organised, the decision to mix regular market stalls with art and craft stalls left me cold!  The steel band from Stockport were great and I met a silversmith from Sheffield who sold silver Chip Forks!

 Thought I’d post links to what’s happening this weekend:

The crucible and the Millenium Gallery are both having  craft fairs 10am to 4pm. They are great places to find inspiration for both Christmas presents and future art projects.

From the 24th to the 27th at Harrogate is the twisted thread exhibition. lots of textile inspiration…..

You can join a workshop, try African wallhangings, monoprinting or fun with felt!
