Markets this season…


It is, dare I say it, only about 6 weeks until Christmas…. An immensely busy time for makers all over, and it wouldn’t be worth it without getting out into the world to sell our products.   Continue reading

Virginia take me home

Feeling very pleased, the buttons are in diaspora! Some of my vintage oxide letterpress buttons have recently migrated to Virginia in the U S of A to be made into delicious crochet things by the beautiful Lindsey….



So pleased they have been put to good use and taken on a creative journey to be used collaboratively with another maker… That hat! I think we should go into business together…

A bit of a catch up…

So, As the Crow Flies had a fairly busy year for stalls – I say busy, that only means about 5 since last Christmas season but here are a few pics of the past year, as I haven’t posted anything new for while…

I’m excited about the new owl brooches!! They sold really well over summer so busy trying to make more before I miss the Christmas bus 🙂

A belated post of a load of fun winter market stock by As The Crow Flies industries… Speaking of industrious – I just went to the Watershed to see the incredible early Russian film ‘Turksib‘ with a live score by Bronnt Industries Kapital.  Absolutely mesmerising and beautiful.  Everything is rendered so clear and pure in black and white; it gives far more space to simply observe and engage with what’s going on.

Paintworks Spring Art Market

Well, the sun shone brightly on the day of the market – possibly for the first time with any true gusto this spring, which could account for the slow trickle of art and craft lovers milling through…. However, there were lots of lovely make and do-ers there to meet and peruse.  Here’s how my bike-powered stall was looking in early March…  Soon might be trying to tout my wares at the Bristol Vintage Velo ride fete and perhaps even Colston Hall’s ‘Made in Bristol’ market later this month.  Must admit I’d almost rather be taking part in the vintage dress-up country bike tour rather than trying to sell things!



Checkout Market

Checkout at Central Reservation – 6th June 2010

Took part in the rather wondrous art market Checkout at a great temporary contemporary art space (Central Reservation) in Stokes Croft a couple of weeks back.

Really inspiring to be at a market with so many other diverse artists and makers.  Good space… Checkout my stall…

browsing through some photos of buttons and things, thought i would post up a range of different styles:
