Events Coming Up

Hope you’re all keeping warm during this autumnal weather.
Just a quick note to keep let you know of a few events coming up.

Saturday November 12th 10am – 4pm
It’s that time of year when the rather fabulous ‘Sherwood Christmas Contemporary Market’ takes place.
Organised by Rachel Ainley & Sophie Robins, the market, now in it’s 6th year, is held at The Place, 2a Melrose Street, in Sherwood behind the old bus depot.
Many local talented makers will be selling their work including textiles, jewellery ceramics, mosaic, prints, lanterns, decoupage, photography, jams and chutney, cakes and food. Admission as always is free.
This brilliant community event is an ideal opportunity to pick up a few Christmas gifts & well worth a visit if you have never been before.

Saturday November 26th 1pm
If you weren’t able to make the previous meeting there will be a second one to discuss Sherwood Art Week 2012. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Saturday December 3rd – December 24th – Various Times
Look out for a new venture from Anna French, Julian & David called ‘Craft In The City’. Happening over the four weekends leading up to Christmas at Waterstone’s, Bridlesmith Gate, this Arts & Craft Fair brings together many of Nottingham’s finest designers, makers & artists. For more information, and a chance to win some vouchers, check out the website or visit the blog.

That’s all for now. Remember, if you have any events coming up that you would like featured on the blog then just send the details to

Christmas Cards & A Cook Book

Digital artist Corrina Rothwell, who designed the SAW2011 poster, has not only produced a new set of wonderfully quirky Christmas cards but has also contributed to a recently published global recipe book.

The eight cards are a funny, slightly skewed, irreverent take on the festive season, guaranteed to raise a chuckle from many a friend or relative ('drunken fairy' being a rather inspired stand-out).

Her venture into the world of cook books, "They Draw & Cook", is a collection of 107 recipes imaginatively illustrated by various artists from around the world. It is the perfect gift for a lover of the comical & gastronomical! Head over to amazon uk for more information.

You can catch Corrina & her work at the upcoming Sherwood Contemporary Christmas Craft Market & Craft In The City event @ Waterstones.
