It is indicative of the high standard of stalls at Little Otter Markets that many of our makers are also exhibiting their work at the renowned exhibition of contemporary craft Made by Hand held in City Hall, Cardiff this coming weekend - including poet and print maker Francesca Kay.
I love seeing Francesca Kay at our events. She has a fabulous personality and is such a lovely fun person to chat to. Her range consists of poems in seed packets and on postcards, lots of words made into letterpress prints, handmade books and badges - in fact, everything to do with the joy of words and ideas.
I asked Francesca to tell us how she spends her Christmas...
Come and meet Francesca Kay at Penarth's Handmade Market on Sunday 18th November 2018, 11-4pm in the Paget Rooms, Penarth.
Our talented group of designer makers have been busy behind the scenes working on new additions to their ranges. I am always blown away with their creativeness and originality. Roll on payday!
