Outlaw Craft Show

This May bank holiday weekend saw the Outlaw Craft Show take place at the Passenger Shed in Bristol. The event was the first time that the show had taken place outside of Cornwall and brought with it a host of wonderful makers from across the South West. There were plenty of opportunities to get involved with makers in residence, workshops and "make and take" sessions too! Here is my photo diary from the day :)

There was so much to see and do at Outlaw and I got to chat with some really lovely makers. Coming from Cornwall, the event introduced me to a whole host of new makers from the local area.

My friend and I made two sweeps of the event; one to browse and chat and then another to make purchases after deliberating over tea and cake (I had a chocolate guinness cake which was amazing!) I think that was a perfect way to do things. With plenty of space and a perfect number of stalls to offer huge variety in goods without being overwhelming - we were in our handmade element! The size of the event also meant that my budget only had to make one sacrifice from my wishlist; a gorgeous acrylic bunny pendant from Sstutter - but I plan on making that up soon!

Here are my purchases from the day, and links to some of the amazing shops exhibiting at Outlaw:

"Holy Shiitake!" and "Adopt a Rock" postcard collections and earrings from Baku Forest (This is fast becoming one of my favourite local Etsy pages!)
Beach Huts mug from Julia Davey 
Postcards, vinyl stickers and badges from Ladybird Likes
Bee print from Boodle Boutique
Glitter feather necklace from Thimbleson
Sea dog greetings card from Watermark Designs

Other makers I will be shopping with in future:

SStutter - amazing acrylic jewellery
Itinerant Bizarrium - Highly detailed gothic painted dolls
Lauren Aston - Gorgeously chunky knitted homeware
Paper Hare - Whimsical illustration

Overall, Outlaw was a brilliant event, and I hope I'll get to visit again!
