This was my first visit to Made Brighton, the Design and Craft Fair, organised by the lovely people at Tutton and Young and I have to say that I had rather high expectations after visiting their Art Fair.

Taking place at the same venue as before, the Corn Exchange is a big space and in this instance is home to over 120 makers and designers.

Whether you are into unique pieces of jewellery, textiles, glass, ceramics, furniture, hats, wallpaper or candle sticks, there are stalls that will appeal.  Prices also vary from a few quid to hundreds of pounds, so whether you are looking for Christmas gifts or treats for yourself, you've got two days left to check out this really special collection.

For me, what is so good about this event by Tutton and Young Ltd, (artist and printmaker Sarah Young and head honcho, Jon Tutton), is that the selection of exhibitors is of the highest quality.  Every single stall has beautifully produced items and I could easily have taken hundreds of pics. So, please see the photos in this blog post as merely to give you a flavour of the type of work you'll find.

Particular highlights for me included meeting artist Rachel Eardley whose work I have admired for the last ten years, as well as a necklace with squirrels and acorn on it, a wedding slipper, lampshades made out of maps and vases so miniature they have been designed to take only a small posy of wild flowers.
