Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair 2010

Last weekend was Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair at Spinning Fields in Manchester. Here are some of my favourite designer/makers from the fair.

Samantha Bryan

Samantha Bryan makes these delightful little characters from her studio in Wakefield. This is the first time I have seen her work first hand and I have to say I was taken aback by these delightful, playful intricately made figures. I would love to give one of these little fellas a home.

Oh golly gosh

Elaine Hughes creates visual stories depicting scenes from her imaginary topsey-turvey world called Oh Golly Gosh. Her work involves stitched paper and fabric collages with a vintage feel.

And Made

What I couldn't resist coming home with................

Andrea Lord makes these beautiful cactus pin cushions from her studio. As it's my mum's birthday on Wednesday I had the perfect excuse to buy one and I couldn't resist getting one for myself as well! And Made has a studio/shop in Manchester's Craft and design center so next time your there make sure you pop in and have a look .
