As yesterday was the last day of Sherwood Art Week I’m starting this week with a round up post of the whole week.
Many of the shops in the area turned their windows over to locals artists and crafts people, here’s a few of my favourites, I’ve included links to websites as possible and I apologise for the dodgy photography, it’s so tricky to take photos through glass!

The exhibition I took part in showed many different mediums of work from local artists, including sculpture, watercolour, textiles and photography.

I always love to see the yarn bombing, this year the whole of Sherwood was pompom bombed! My children loved these lovely pompom sculptures.
And here’s a few photos of my work from the exhibition. I really enjoyed the whole experience, it was great to meet some of the artists and makers who were taking part. The private view was a really nice way to show some friends and family what I’ve been up to for the last few months!
As I didn’t make any sales the embroidery I made for the exhibition will be put in my Folksy shop, and will be available far the craft fair I’m doing next week at the Creative Quarter in Sneinton Market, Nottingham.
I also made a couple of purchases from the Secret Garden Craft Fair, for my mums birthday, I bought this lovely card from Amy Primarolo, the cute trinket dish from Rolling Roses and the little badge from Faye Baines.
And I think that’s it! I hope you’ve enjoyed my virtual tour of the Sherwood Art Week, and if there’s any more info you want on it please check their website here. Thank you so much to all the organisers, it’s been great, see you next year!
