I've just returned from the British Craft Trade Fair 2015, after 3 days spent amongst lovely people. It was my sixth time at the prestigious fair, which celebrates the best of handmade applied arts, incorporating jewellery, ceramics, textiles, glass, paper and a range of mixed media. The BCTF gives British makers the opportunity to show their work to a wide variety of galleries, museums and retailers. The thing I love the most is how friendly the event is, with generous support and advice from other makers and precious feedback from influential professionals. It is incredibly inspiring to be amidst such creative, skilled and knowledgeable people and I always leave feeling invigorated and motivated.
