The story behind Little Otter Markets....
With a background in marketing, public relations, fundraising and event management, April Simmons Liddell set up Little Otter Markets in 2013 following her time away from the office working hard as a full time mama.
Having grown up in a crafty household surrounded by sewing boxes and paintbrushes, April's passion for craft developed at an early age. As a frequent visitor to craft fairs, April discovered a lack of markets showcasing sellers of high quality contemporary craft. So she decided to create the sort of craft fair she'd like to go to and launched Rhiwbina's Handmade Market in November 2013.
When she's not organising contemporary craft markets, April is busy working as a Teaching Assistant in Cardiff. Outside of work, she loves spending time with her daughters Awen & Tirion and husband Gethin; taking photos; buying stationery or listening to 6music. She owns a lot of teapots and is slowly building up a collection of Kirsty Elson sculptures.
A big thank you to everyone who joined us at our Mothers' Day special in Penarth. Little Otter Markets will return in November 2019 and applications will open in summer 2019.
