The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair

I recently visited the GNCCF with fellow students from my course at Cleveland College of Art and Design and, besides being a great opportunity to do some market research, I found the whole experience truly inspirational. There are certainly some very talented people out there and I was delighted to find specialists in lampshades as this is an area I plan to design for in my Final Major Project. Check out the printed designs of Laura Slater, the delicate cut work of Hannah Nunn and the very different wooden shades of Jane Blease.
As I have a passion for knitting and have produced my own patterns for soft toys I found it interesting to speak to Suzie Johnson about her knitting business in Somerset.
