This September was my first visit to the annual Taste of Wickham event. This is a popular festival of local produce, mostly food and drink, held in the historic Wickham Square in Hampshire.
There are also art and craft stalls presented by makers from the area.
As Taste of Wickham is held in gazebos in the open air, it was a relief that the torrential rain of the previous week cleared and we had lovely blue sky.
This family-orientated event featured entertainment for the children, plus a choir and impressive drumming band, alongside the food demonstrations in the main marquee.
I was pleased to discover that there were plenty of visitors who enjoyed my stained glass work. As always, the fun dragons and cute owl pictures amused them.
Although it was only September, I took a some of the popular angel and Christmas tree decorations along – and they all sold out! It is never too early to buy for Christmas!
As I had a good space in the gazebo, I hung lots of stained glass light catchers from the bars. I also had a display of terrariums planted out with white gravel and very realistic artificial succulent plants.
Best sellers were angels, light catchers, quirky birds and dragons.
Several people enquired about larger stained glass projects. These were for possible front door designs and for internal doors and windows.
It was great to meet so many lovely people at Taste of Wickham. Everyone was very positive about my stained glass designs and it was definitely worth the early start!
My next event is the Contemporary Craft Show at Fort Purbrook, on the hill overlooking Portsmouth in Hampshire. This is on the weekend of 5 and 6 November 2022. Read my other blog about this event here – it would be great to see you!
