The organisers were excellent and there was a wealth of information before the show on what potential buyers would be looking for and the information they need. All really useful, especially for a newcomer like me!
It was a pleasure to meet my fellow exhibitors and a lot of people who follow me on Instagram face to face. I don't think I've ever been in a room with so much talent! With 500 exhibitors covering a huge variety of different crafts I found the whole experience to be inspiring.
As well as meeting with gallery and shop owners across the country it was also a wonderful opportunity to discuss glass with some fellow makers, perfect for my inner geek! I don't often get the chance to talk shop with other makers and everyone was very encouraging and willing to talk.
I now have 2 new stockists and quite a few leads to follow, I think most of the work is just starting!
