Church Eaton Festival Artists and Makers Fair
7th & 8th July 2007

This year's Artist and Makers Fair was held at
Oaklands Studios in Wood Eaton Road.
It was open on both days of the festival from 10.30 am to 5.00 pm.

We had a mix of new artists and old favourites returning with new work. It was a great opportunity to see some of the best local talent the area can offer.

It was possible to talk to the artists about their skills, understand the commitment and time put into each and every piece they make and perhaps buy something to take away or maybe commission a piece. either way you will have something unique to treasure.

Shown below is a list of artists presently attending together with their web addresses, please visit them and enjoy.                                                                    Bob Thacker
