Krea Doe 2017 // Craft Fair Review

Yesterday I had the great pleasure of visiting craft extravaganza Krea Doe in Utrecht. A creative exhibition of hobby supplies, handmade pieces, walk in workshops, demonstrations and wall to wall inspiration! It is a yearly 5 day event that brings together makers and sellers, promotes small, local businesses, boosts creative mojo and offers the chance to find your next great project!

Whether you're a punk rock crochet queen, a jewellery making sophisticate or if paper crafts are more your bag, this exciting fair is for you! Besides being easily accessible and big bang for your bucks (the site is huge!) there's all kinds of fun to be had throughout the day. This year there were workshops galore including macramebrush lettering, cupcake decorating and Tunisian crochet!

This colourful day out is also such a great opportunity to reignite the passion for a long ago, pushed aside hobby or the perfect chance to learn a new skill and find your dream medium. Just walking around the jam packed stalls it is impossible not to feel inspired by all of the creativity, to pick up some fabulous ideas for Christmas decorating and gifts, to support independent companies and to network amongst like minded fellow crafters! I love the atmosphere of community at this event and found that people were more than happy to explain their techniques and methods and to share their finely tuned knowledge.

I did really well to restrain myself from buying all of the things. Last year I picked up a few gorgeous treasures and this year found myself absorbing more ideas and influence rather than adding to my ever growing stash. Nether the less I walked away with a list as long as my arm of skills I'd love to either try from scratch or devote more time to improving and I have a skip in my step at the thought of getting stuck in!

All in all it was a truly wonderful day and a date I will continue to add to my diary every year. Feeling freshly motivated I intend to head into my studio space and get experimenting with some current ideas, stay tuned for an example or two of what I've been working on lately. If you're in the Utrecht area be sure to head over to the exhibition as it runs until 5th November and if not get your butt over to next years event! For now, my glorious gang, I wish you all a beautiful week!
