I’ve got some of my glass pendants for sale at Etruria Industrial Museum cafe. I also have some cards and prints. It feels good to have work accepted by them, I don’t have many outlets available in the area. I need to find some more places and try my hand at craft fairs again, but I want to work towards more fine art.
I like doing craft fairs but if you don’t sell enough and you have to provide your own table, or even gazebo, it’s hard to make enough to cover the costs of the fees, plus I am not capable of putting up a gazebo on my own… Possibly a Sun Umbrella, but that might not be suitable!
Lots of small and tiny paintings, jewellery and prints were also for sale today at the exhibition. The ginger cat at the front centre found a new home. I was only charging a small amount so it was good to sell a few. I even discounted them more. Sometimes you need space to create new things.
Two boards I had paintings on today. I also had a table with small paintings, jewellery and prints. I sold a few pieces which was good and I think I got a good reception from people. Overall most people in the group seemed to have a good day. It was quite busy all day from when we opened to the last few minutes. It was also good chatting with artists and finding out bit more about their work. I’m tired but happy.
This Saturday, around eight artists will be exhibiting at the Whitfield Community Centre, Whitfield Avenue, Newcastle under Lyme, Staffordshire. Eleven till Four.
It should be good. Crafts and jewellery as well as paintings and drawings will be for sale. It will be interesting to see how many people come out. Hope the weather is fine. I will be wearing a mask, hope no one minds!
One of my glass pendants, beautifully photographed by @transishots on Instagram. They are for sale at the Waiting Room gallery in Longport, Stoke-on-Trent. They are glass cabochons made of dichromatic? Glass. I really loved making them and @shivamoonhippybizaar did the wireweaving. X
When you take a photo of your work and post it in Instagram… Don’t include your foot! I was trying to take a photo of my necklaces on display at the waiting room gallery at Longport, Stoke-on-Trent. I’m pleased to say I have sold two necklaces and a small painting. It’s taken six months, but now they can allow people in again it might do better. I may arrange to make some more pieces.
I’ve been panicking because I made some new glass pendants but I had no chains or laces to hang them on. In the end I went to our local supermarket and found some plain chains that were reduced a bit in price. As I make one off things I don’t use wholesalers so it’s a bit difficult to just find an appropriate match for the pendants.
I used my business cards to display the pendants. I realise now that my vibrant painting matches the colours on my jewellery.
They will be for sale at the Waiting room gallery in Longport, Stoke-on-Trent.
I have just been asked to put these necklaces in the waiting room gallery in Longport, Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire. They will be for sale over the next few weeks. I already have some small paintings on display there. The Waiting Room gallery can be found online on Facebook.
One has already been sold. I hope people like them.
I was so pleased to get these yesterday. My friend had got them before the pandemic but because of her work we could not see each other for months. Now each fused glass cabochon has a smart wire weave bale and chain.
I tried to get good photos of them although the light in our house isn’t good, perhaps I should get a light box? I think they work really well together.
