last sunday (25th November) saw court robert arts hold it's very first christmas craft fair.
we had over a dozen exhibitors attend- all showcasing beautiful handmade gifts and products. from watercolour bookmarks to jewellery bags, felt creations to handmade candles- the variety of crafts was amazing and the quality outstanding.
the craft fair opened to the public at 10am, and we were amazed at how many visitors were waiting for our doors to open!
overall, the day was a huge success and we're looking forward to holding similar events in the future. so far next year we have a book launch, the opening of our tearooms, the official opening of our seasonal garden and possibly a summer fete planned! if you're interested in exhibiting or attending future events, please sign up to our newsletter.
South Wales currently has an amber weather warning in place issued by the met office and the police.
our stuart stockwell kinetic sculpture is turning away in our courtyard and our sculptures are all loking a little wet. although, it makes for great photo's!
we hope all our visitors stay safe while this weather warning is in place!
Although it finally feels like winter, court robert is already preparing for spring!
we've contacted artists from around the uk, inviting them to exhibit with us next year- so there'll be lots of variety in artwork for our visitors to see.
this week we've been fortunate to receive several items from tony ford for display. they look fantastic and add an extra dimension to our sculpture courtyard. we hope our visitors are as impressed as we are!
our sculpture exhibitions are open throughout the winter so make sure you visit our wonderful artwork this winter!
don't forget, our first christmas craft fair is on sunday 25th november. they'll be a variety of homemade gifts for you to view and purchase- many of our exhibitors are past and present students of lemon studios arts school ltd! we look forward to seeing everyone there.
it doesn't feel like it was 20 degrees just last week, does it? however, we can't complain because the frost in the morning is creating truly unique sculpture at court robert arts!
Frost is a deposit of small white ice crystals formed on the ground or other surfaces when the temperature falls below freezing. all our sculptures are waking up covered in frost at the moment, but don't worry, our sculptures are frost proof. We ask that you leave them where they are, they will be perfectly safe in this cold weather.
if you have any questions about your sculpture during the cold weather, please get in touch!

we're excited for our future!
