Another craft fair I heard about through my friend Fliff Carr, a ceramicist. What I particularly liked about this fair, held in St Mary-the Virgin church, was the very wide variety of objects on show, not all from the UK.
In Switzerland, even the supermarkets have a handicrafts section and there are lot of emporia where you can buy everything – from painting and modelling to knitting and sewing and lots, lots more.
I bought the papier mâché box several years ago in Migros – a large Swiss supermarket near where Jane lives. Now that she is coming for a weekend I finally got round to covering it with Decopatch paper. Jane specialises in making up boxes of little gifts for our birthdays. I will fill hers with bits and pieces from MUJI and from various art galleries I’ve visited lately.
