The Bright Craft Fair

Brighton craft fair 2017

Continuing to sell my designs through 11 Rugby Road, in the past 2 years alongside our yearly Artist Open House I set up our online shop, ran pop up shops and gallery shows and now myself and Adam are starting our own craft fair in the heart of Brighton!

With the Bright Craft Fair we aim to bring our stylised Open House feel to all the stalls involved. Focus will be on fellow designers, gifts and homeware makers with less WI more Wow!

We have planned 3 shows this year, the first just in time for a Valentine’s surprise on the 4th of February. Then a summer fair on 15th of July and a winter date tbc.

Attached is a small gallery with images of our craft shows in Brighton, which show the love and attention to setting up is just as important to us as the goodies we sell!

Royal Baby Papercraft

Just as Kate Middleton begins to bow out from public appearances to prepare for her due date, I thought I would craft a paper souvenir in the style of my other Royal event memorabilia.

William Kate baby souvenir

Remembering that William & Kate’s new arrival will one day be King or Queen, I have made a simple paper rocking horse which celebrates our new royal! (royals and horses go hand in hand) The free pdf template is available to download, catering for both baby boy and baby girl scenarios. Just print out on A4 card or thicker paper (photopaper is fine) and have yourself a memento of a little bit of history.

Why not place your bets on these horses of when our new royal will be born by writing on your prediction? (My guess is  the 11th July). Both pdf downloads are linked at the bottom of the page. I hope you enjoy the download. I’d love to see how people get along with making it up and feel free to share this page. To see more of my Royal papercraft, click HERE

Alternative Shy Christmas Cards

I’ve crafted Christmas cards in same style as my Shy poster series, that featured different printing techniques and subtle colour changes to show a subtle, typographic message.

The worst thing about these cards is that they don’t photograph well! The Christmassy message written on each I’ve got to a perfect amount of visibility (through lots of trial and error).

The first card is fairly traditional with the lyrics “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” on the front in… white. The minimal, effortlessly cool style of the white on white is perfect for those that like a twist on standard Christmas cards.

The other cards take their inspiration for the Pogues song Fairytale of New York. These ‘shy’ cards have had a Christmas drink and are now a bit sweary.

You’re a bum
You’re a punk
You’re an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it’s our last
