Haddonfield Crafts & Fine Art Festival

Mark your calendars....The Haddonfield Crafts & Fine Arts Festival is around the corner! It will be held on July 9 & 10 on Kings Highway in Haddonfield, NJ. The show opens on Saturday at 11am and will go until 7pm. Sunday's hours are 12 noon to 5 pm. You can find my booth on the smaller side of the street (for those of you who have been in the past you know what I mean) down by the PATCO speed line. This is a really great show and with all the talented artists who participate there is definitely something for everyone! Hope to see you there!

"Once again Kings Highway, the businesses and residents in Haddonfield are set to host their nationally ranked Arts Festival. During the borough's premier event, Kings Highway and Tanner Street will be closed to vehicular traffic. What is a usually a busy main artery through the center of town is transformed into a festive corridor, alive with a panorama of artist's tents and various crafts on exhibit to Haddonfield residents and visitors. Area restaurants will set up outdoor caf├ęs and musicians will entertain the crowds as they view the unique work from artisans from across the country.

This year's show will feature many fine artists and craft persons who come to Haddonfield to exhibit and sell their work. Artisans will exhibit a wide range of arts and crafts including ceramics, glass, jewelry, wood, fiber, metal, paper, drawings, paintings, photography and wearable art. This year's show brings a wonderful mix of new and old artist, with exhibitors who have come as far as Israel to participate once again."

studio tour

People are always asking me how I do what I do and what my studio space looks like so when the Etsy Metal team decided to do a blog carnival about our studio spaces I thought it would be the perfect way to show everyone! Below are some photos of my studio. The photos were taken after I clean up a LOT. It usually does not look anywhere near as neat and clean as this when I am working but I had to clean for a class I was teaching so I thought it would be the perfect time to take some photos.

My jewelers bench is up against the wall (where all the magic happens) and I have a table behind it in the middle of the room where I lay out my designs, put my supplies when working and also have my students sit when teaching. The table has 2 leaves and can extend to seat 12 people.

 On the left side of my bench is I have lots of cabinets where I store all of my mess and I also have a sink. I love having a sink in my studio! In my last studio space I had to leave my studio for running water so this makes it much easier.

And to the right of my bench I have more cabinets for storage as well as my "office space". This is about as clean as that space ever gets and although its not the most organized it works! The painting over my desk was done by my sister and given to me for my birthday 2 years ago. She also has a shop on etsy where she sells her pocket monsters.
