Last weekend I also had a craft stall at the Bluebell Bazaar at Green Island Gardens, Ardleigh. This is a really beautiful venue, with 20 acres of gardens and woodlands to explore.






On the first day, we were towards the back of the garden, near the secret garden. There were lots of people about and I met a lovely lady from Willowmead Studios: They sell gorgeous alpaca yarn - obviously I couldn't resist because of my not-so-secret crochet obsession! They also do lots of lovely workshops at their studio - I am extremely tempted to have a go at weaving!







As I had a little more space I could show some of my framed prints alongside my usual mounted prints and range of cards.




On the Sunday we were moved much more centrally in the garden and were right next to the pond. This is a really lovely area with a little stream running into the pond. I absolutely love water so I really enjoyed our position. Again we met lots of lovely people and I shared some of my drawing tips.


My next fair is at It's a Knockout Challenge Day at Bourne Vale Club in Ipswich on Saturday 6th June, then the Lavenham Craft Market on Saturday 13th June (!craft-markets/c1x6w) and I am hoping to demonstrate how I create some of my drawings. I hope to see you there - they promise to be super fairs!
