Still time to visit the show at St Just
Yesterday we did our stewarding session at the Art & Craft exhibition in St Just. This incredible fund raising event, organised entirely by volunteers, reached the fantastic milestone of one million pounds for Cancer Research UK in 2019. Last year the show returned after the Covid restrictions relaxed & 2023 is looking like another bumper year.
This year I am exhibiting a range of my metalwork & greetings cards at the show. Usually my space is a quite compact 4 ft table however we were given the option of a 6 ft table this time so I have been able to display the work better (in my opinion!)
For the first time I have also included some artwork, some small unframed texture pieces plus 3 special paintings I created especially for the event. Newlyn I - III are inspired by the colourful boats with the distressed paint surfaces & buoys in Newlyn harbour. One of these sold on the first day & I think a further piece has gone to a new home too which is great news!
The show is open daily from 10am - 7pm (apart from the last day this Friday when it closes at 5pm). There is a huge array of handmade work including textiles, ceramics, woodwork, stone carving, jewellery, metalwork, paper & artwork. Lots of visitors say they start their Christmas shopping at this event & there are certainly lots of items to get you thinking!
We will be collecting the unsold work & helping with the breakdown of the show this Saturday. With a bit of luck there won't be too much to bring back!?
