The Exeter Craft Festival was amazing. Glorious weather, plenty of visitors, interesting enquiries, wonderful entertainment. It was a super family day on Saturday with kids running around, everyone enjoying the sunshine and some great entertainment from the likes of the Dart Valley Stompers walking jazz band, Appalachian percussion dancers (a bit like Irish dancing but looser in style) and the River City Chorus ladies a cappella choir. A brilliant atmosphere.

On the Thursday it was the Lammas Day proclamation and the Lord Mayor dropped by the stand in all his finery, so we took advantage of a photo opportunity.

The event is so well organised, yet so relaxed ┬áVery gratifying but it’s going to mean a lot of time in the forge to get things ready for upcoming shows.
