Third prize from Ilfracombe Round Table
As you can see there were some amazing entries and lots of hard work.
Well done everyone and it was a glorious hot sunny day too!
The weekend before this, Ilfracombe held it's first ever arts festival, part of the North Devon Arts Festival, it was an amazing success and I took part in the craft fair in The Lantern, a lovely converted Methodist chapel in the High Street. I didn't make many sales but made a contact with a lady who runs a gallery at Instow, where I now have a few pieces on display.
This is a recent piece I'm quite pleased with, which is now at the Waterside Gallery Instow
