The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair will be happening in Manchester this week, from October 9 through 12th. I was introduced to the Fair by an UPPERCASE reader, Cherry Chung, who will also be exhibiting her work at the Fair. Cherry is a basket weaver who incorporates ceramics into her basket-making process. She also creates amazing willow outdoor sculptures that I look forward to learning more about... I'll be featuring her work in the winter issue of UPPERCASE. (You never know where one simple email with lead!)
The event website presents images and links to all the exhibiting artists, which is a benefit for us unable to attend. I'm bookmarking a lot into my idea files! I'm sure the Fair would be amazing to see in person, so if you're in the UK, please go enjoy it on my behalf.
