The Bovey Tracey craft festival was an incredible event to be a part of. The standard of the artists and craftspeople was very high and this was made clear by the number of people entering the event over the long weekend.
By the end of the weekend, I had talked to hundreds of people, given away nearly all of my business postcards and sold all pieces on the stand, with commissions to prepare afterwards. It was exhausting but brilliant!
It further impressed on me the significance of getting my pieces in front of people for them to see and touch; therefore I will be exhibiting at other shows soon, as well as having more pieces in retail spaces.
