Well - I had a lovely day in Southwell Minster yesterday, and met many people who were really interested in the crafts on display. Lots of great conversations - in particular about the family tree on my stand (which happens to be my ownthat I had on display.
I did do some demoing, but I was really cold - having forgotten that even if the sun is shining (and it was) it's going to be cold in a stone floored cavernous minster! Thanks to my kind friend who loaned me a scarf for a while and the splendid cups of tea, I survived.
I'm sorry this image is poor, but it gives you an idea of the look of my stand.
It was an interesting mix of crafts and people to advise on restoration of buildings. I enjoyed watching medieval tiles being made, stone carving, furniture making, beautiful embroidered stoles, calligraphy from another calligrapher, amazing hand bound books, and more.
