Markets, galleries and Christmas present opportunities

It’s the start of November and my thoughts are turning towards a busy couple of months in the run up to Christmas. I’ve been booking myself in to craft fairs, making lots of new work and packaging pots and jewellery up to send to galleries. Two weeks ago I visited the wonderful Kunsthuis Gallery at the Dutch House in Crayke, near York, to deliver my wrap pots and a selection of ceramic jewellery for their Christmas exhibition which opens on the 7th November. It’s a beautiful gallery in a great setting; there are gardens to visit, a café and lots of events over the Christmas period - well worth a visit. For more information visit www.dutchhouseyorkshire.com .

A good selection of my coiled pots and ceramic jewellery has also winged its way over to The Millennium Gallery, Sheffield, for their Handmade for Christmas exhibition which opened on the 31st October and runs until 5th January. This one has been in the pipeline for many months after they saw my work at the British Craft Trade Fair way back in April.

Two great vStalybridge Handmade Market 22nd Novemberenues for Yorkshire folk to visit! As for those over this side of the Pennines, I have lots of Christmas events coming up in the next couple of months. I attended my first Stalybridge Handmade market on 18th October - what a fabulous event! Full of artisans making beautiful art, craft and very tempting food, it was really busy and even in the middle of October people were starting to buy unique handmade gifts for presents. I’m really looking forward to being at the next one on 22nd November - which is the last one before Christmas. I’ll have my new purple winter ranges of ceramic jewellery for sale too, great for pressies.

I have many more events coming up; keep in touch by signing up to the newsletter on my website www.katyoneil.com , following me on Twitter @KONceramics or Facebook at facebook.com/katyoneilceramicjewellery.
