Appleducks is a brand new local business recently established by Jo Roberts @ Lovelies (www.facebook.com/lovelieshandmade) and Stephanie Brushfield @ Elephant in my Handbag (www.elephantinmyhandbag.com). Friends Jo and Stephanie discovered that they both had a passion for supporting talented local artists and makers but felt there were very few outlets for them to sell their beautiful handmade products. Visiting shows such as The Spirit of Christmas and the Country Living Fairs confirmed their view - they saw that there were plenty of outlets for mass produced things but not for smaller quantities of beautiful handmade items.
So the seed of an idea formed and Jo and Stephanie decided to give Tunbridge Wells its very own Craft Fair, called ‘Handmade with Love’ championing local makers. At the same time, they established Appleducks as an event company - both Jo and Stephanie have experience in event organisation (Jo had organised craft fairs and Stephanie charity balls in London). The next step was to find the perfect venue for ‘Handmade with Love’ - Trinity stood out as the hub for the Arts Scene in Tunbridge Wells.
Jo and Stephanie hope Handmade with Love @ Trinity will be the first of many successful local events for Appleducks !
Handmade with Love @ Trinity will be held on Saturday 10th November 2012 from 10.30 am - 4 pm and will feature beautiful handmade crafts designed and created by hand-picked talented local makers and artisans. As well as knitted, crocheted and hand sewn goods, there will be artwork, ceramics, cards, homeware, jewellery and clothing for sale. Perfect for sourcing one-off Christmas presents or just for treating yourself!
