Jack in the Green had a fabulous collection of Handpainted Green Men on display, The Green Man is believed to symbolise the life, cycle of death and birth.
Greenman: If you walk within a forest of ancient wood and get a feeling you are not alone, the chances are he is with you. He’s been with mankind from the beginning and is round us more than ever, helping us make contact with our natural environment and stop us destroying our fragile world.
It was great to meet Jaydee Crochet – The Home of the Flug – a new accessory. So what is a Flug? Is it a Scarf? NO – Is it a Shawl? NO – Is it a Wrap? sort of…imagine the softness of a fluffy teddy, the lightness of feathers the warmth of a hug… well that is a FLUG! Jaydee Crochet had a vast collection on display including Irish Lacework and pretty crochet accessories.
Diane Brookes a local professional artist had a variety of her portfolio on display. Diane works in various styles and mediums, water colours, soft pastels, oils, pencil and acrylics.
Healing Craft fair was certainly worth the visit, and I cant wait for next years fair! Its always a treat to support local events. I found lots of beautifully handmade items that I purchased, they are now with santa! Obviously I haven’t shared these special finds as you never know who may be reading the blog! 😉 Maybe after christmas I will share! The atmosphere at the fair was relaxed and very festive and I highly recommend to all to go and visit next year!
