Harvest Festival, creative market

Hello, today I'm going to tell you about Harvest Festival in a little city called Preston.

Harvest Preston is a new creative collective which is bringing together local talent for networking and showcasing work. It is open too artists, musicians, photographers, designers etc

This weekend was the launch of Harvest in the form of an amazing festival which brought together many local creatives for live music, exhibitions of art and photography, comedy and creative market.

I had a little stall in the creative market selling fascinators, brooches and even my first attempts at cardmaking!

I also sold a few copies of Twigs and Apples whic i recently wrote a piece for, this a new zine based in the north west which aims to provide an outlet for creatives from many different disciplines, this ranges from music, gardening, cooking recipes and art and a whole load of other things in between! They are open to suggestions and consider submissions from anyone, if you are interested in contributing click the link above which will take you to the facebook page.  Here are a few pictures...

There were some amazing other stalls too which i am now going to tell you about.
