Donkey Sanctuary Autumn Craft Fair 2012

 We took a stand at this year's fair held to raise funds for the charity which looks after donkeys both in the UK and abroad. Although it stayed fine on the day it was very wet underfoot and very damp and cold in the tent. Partly due to the weather and partly due to a new John Lewis store opening in Exeter attendance was on the poor side. Still, all in a good cause! Visit their website here

Sarah's no Chicken

Sarah about to print a chicken!
Sarah's mum knocked on my workshop door at the start of the summer asking if we could give her daughter Sarah some work experience. Sarah is studying at Plymouth College of Art and Design. So for about 3 months our numbers doubled - i.e there were two of us - which was fun. Sarah proved to be a dab hand at stencil cutting and printing and you can see her handiwork in the Chicken cushions and tea towels, a project I devised to allow her to get her hands dirty - literally. Sarah is back in Plymouth in her final year but I'm hoping she might come back and do some more printing in those long student vacs.
