After the enormous success of this year’s Craft Fair at the Clickimin, there’s no let up for the makers as they continue work on their products in the run up to Christmas. Almost 3000 people visited the Shetland Arts and Crafts Association annual Craft Fair over the weekend of 13-15 November. There was work by regulars such as Suzanne Shearer of Phatsheep Textiles, Cecil Tait of Paparwark and Ian Gidney of Journeyman Leather alongside new jewellery designers, potter John Jacobs of Vidlin Pottery, who performed demonstrations throughout the weekend, and Terry Atkinson, of Tingwall Woodcraft, who was back after a few year’s absence with his handmade lathe, on which he demonstrated the making of peppermills. Viktoria Indrica, of Wild held a fashion show of her Fair Isle collection on the Saturday afternoon which was a massive hit. Wendy Inkster, designer of the Burra Bear and one of the event organisers, said, ‘the quality and layout gets better each year, with Craft workers making more and more effort with their displays, which all adds to the success and look of the whole event.’ Shetland Arts and Crafts Association
