This weekend i went to Manchester great northern contemporary craft fair. Some really cool stuff. I find some shows like this quite similar to each other maybe I'm being miserable but I always find they have similar kind of work.On the other hand I was really inspired by most of the embroidery work at the craft fair example Louise Gardiner, Shellie Holden , Elaine Hughes and Caroline Kirton. I really wish i could draw like Caroline Kirton, she over heard me saying this as i was looking at her work and told me it 'really is practise makes perfect' she gave me a tad reassurance in my alien looking life drawings.
Other cool artist were Sally Collins and Alan Ardiff.
