HELP JAPAN Handmade Art Sale

What are you up to on this Easter break? Why not visiting Knaresborough, our beautiful historic town in North Yorkshire? This coming Saturday 23rd April, there will be Knaresborough Easter Fayre. Why not have a look around the stalls at the market place, children’s entertainment at 11th century Castle, take a walk by the river, pop around our local deli and cafe and much more. 
At Knaresborough Easter Fayre, I will be holding a stall (only Saturdayto raise money for Japan Earthquake Appeal. I will be selling my ceramic work, brooches, prints, postcards, stationaries and many more and all proceeds will go to the appeal. There will also be the last stock of birds from HELP JAPAN 1000 BIRDS PROJECT, which is currently running worldwide from this blog. Everything on the stall are handmade. This will be the one off chance for you to get my work at the very special price and YOU will be helping Japan! 

Have got kids? Why not come and join the ‘Making Your Easter Bunny’ origami workshop, which will be held by my husband (the origami master!)? It’s going to be fun! This activity is free, but voluntary donations are welcome to ‘Easter Bunny Donation Box’ at the stall. Every little does help and can make a difference.

Looking forward to seeing you there! xm

    The birds arrived on Friday, they are lovely! Your heart shows in the creation and work time you spent to your home country of Japan. Japan will need support for a long time to come.

    Peace & namaste

    WANTED!! Two more small Japanese ceramic birds! Excellent price paid! This limited edition could soon be a collector's item!

    PLEASE make some more Maki - everyone loves them! And it's such a good cause too.
