Clever Crafty People

Two to share with you

Here is the information I promised about some of the lovely and talented craftspeople I met at the Christmas Market last weekend.

Firstly, Jo Hunter of West Country Creative, Lifton, Devon. A very friendly and approachable lady, she creates beautiful one-off pieces and offers inspirational workshops in Polymer Clay, Silver Clay and Textiles. Here are a few photos from her website.

Also very friendly and knowledgeable were Chris George and his lovely wife. Chris is an ex naval engineer who has now turned (pardon the pun) his hand very successfully to woodturning and is creating beautiful and bespoke pieces from a variety of woods.

I was fascinated by the lovely shapes Chris is able to produce and how they bring out the natural beauty of the wood grain.Click on the link below to take a look at his gallery and see some of the clever and elegant things he has created.

I hope you are as impressed as I was at the amazing talents of these two very different craftspeople.
