Shows for 2015

March 25, 2015

Spring is nearly upon us, the sun has begun to show his face, and Easter isn’t far away.  For myBearHands that means it’s time to start prepping for the Summer Craft Fair season!

With that in mind, I thought I’d share some exciting events where you’ll be able to find myBearHand unique laser cut jewellery this year.  I’m hoping to add to this list as more events announce their line-ups, but for now, here are some dates for your diary.

First up is The Contemporary Craft Festival in Bovey Tracey, Devon from the 5th to 7th June.  Having grown up in the South West I love returning for events like this.  This is well established in the Craft calendar, and a really great weekend.  The standard of work is high with some extremely talented makers exhibiting, and the setting couldn’t be more lovely.  Make a day of it, stop for lunch or an ice cream, take the kids to the activities tent, and listen to live music in the sunshine.

Hot on it’s heels, from the 13th – 14th June, will be the Easton Arts Trail in Bristol.  This is a lovely event, when local Bristol artists open their homes and studios for a weekend to exhibit and sell their work.  It gives the opportunity to meet local creative people, and also to get a sneak peek at their work spaces….and lets be honest….to nosey around in their houses a bit!  Some lovely work can be found, and there’s always plenty of delicious home made cake to keep you going 🙂

Wonderful community spirit at the Easton Arts Trail.


Next up, moving on a month (phew, time to catch up with some making!) is The Big Art Show in Shrewsbury from the 3rd – 5th July.  In it’s second year, this promises to be a fantastic event, with some beautiful and varied work on offer.

And lastly, for now, is the Exeter Craft Festival, from 17th – 18th July.  Last year was my first time at this Craft Show, and I had a great weekend, so am really looking forward to returning.  It really is a gorgeous setting, in the grounds of the historic Cathedral…not to mention that Exeter is my home town, so I get to combine it with some family and friends catch up time 🙂

Plenty to be getting on with for now, but fingers crossed I’ll have more craft events to share with you soon 🙂
