Derbyshire Open Arts in a couple of weeks. https://www.derbyshireopenarts.co.uk/
You could drop in to the chapel we converted, now occupied by Derek & Tessa https://www.derbyshireopenarts.co.uk/artists/derek-harbinson
which we are pleased about as he is a craftsman and using the building as we intended - could have ended up as flats, air BNB, massage parlour etc :rolleyes:

I went to Harrogate Toolfair today, it was okay but nothing amazing. I go every year and always say I won't bother next time but still end up going, it's the free entry, free parking and free bacon sandwich that sucks me in.

I stocked up on Big Wipes as they are always on a good deal and bought a little square from Hultafors, I do like their stuff, it's generally good quality, well designed and not silly money.
How did the show go?
good, Saturday was absolutely rammed, easily double last year (which was pretty decent). Sunday was pretty terrible, half or a third of last year. I didn't get much of a chance to look around other than my pre-show amble (with a terrible terrible hangover on Sunday), but the after party and evening in the Hilton more than made up for that, it's so great to be able to spend time with other makers and friends I've made on instagram.

Check out last year's Tool Show


Tickets are sold out to the Blackbushe air day, not sure what the limit was but a couple of weeks ago they had sold 4500 entry tickets so I'll be more than happy if only 1% come buy something 😀
On a similar not I've applied for a stall at The Oak Fair in Devon in August, fingers crossed they accept 🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞🤞(it depends if they like what they see when they look at photos of my wok)
