~ Handmade for Christmas 2017 ~

A glorious mix of unique and beautiful gifts

from local designers, artists and makers

Is it a gallery? Is it a gift shop? Is it a craft fair?

No! It’s two months of Christmas shopping heaven.

????? Do you value ?????

Superb craftsmanship and design…

The beautiful, quirky and unique…

Local enterprise…

Sitting by a roaring fire with a cup of something warming…

A chat and a laugh…

Good company…

Then this is most definitely the place (and time) for you.

For just two months each year this unassuming little Victorian Chapel

metamorphoses into a glowing beacon of hope for all those who quail at the

thought of the dreaded Christmas shopping trip. Dozens of very talented local

elves and elfesses have been toiling all year in their workshops to make the most

perfect hand-crafted gifts for those on your list (and I’m absolutely certain you

deserve a little something for yourself as well).

If you would like to know more about what goes on in the WC (yes! I know) for the

rest of the year, please visit the website and sign up to the monthly(ish) newsletter.

Now we are six!

When I was one, I had just begun.

When I was two, I was nearly new.

When I was three, I was hardly me.

When I was four, I was not much more.

When I was five, I was just alive.

But now I am six, I’m as clever as clever.

So I think I’ll be six now for ever and ever.

A.A. Milne

From my earliest days this has been one of my very favourite poems and it’s

definitely how I feel about Handmade 2017; this year’s Handmade does feel as

though it’s come of age in some way. I’m not at all sure that I want it to become

much more ‘grown-up’! For 2017 we are open for a massive 60 days – every day of

November and December, barring Christmas Day itself - and have more exhibitors

than ever before. There doesn’t seem to be much opportunity for growing any

further, so perhaps we will, as Christopher Robin wished he could, ‘be six now for

ever and ever’. How exciting!

As ever, the trusty team of Chapel elves will be standing by to make you welcome

and to help in any way they can. Spread the word – tell all your friends – better

still, bring them along! See you in Chapel ;-)

~Gift Tokens, Workshops & Wish Lists~

Ever wondered what to give your Christmas guests and, even more

difficult, what to do with them on Boxing Day?

Well… Why not give them H4C Gift Tokens on the Big Day, then bring

them along to Handmade for Christmas in the week between Christmas

and New Year to spend them? 2 problems solved in one fell swoop!

Hurrah!!!

Why not treat yourself, or someone on your list, to a workshop?

Vouchers for Rose’s feltmaking workshops (and maybe a few others) will be

available during H4C.

Ever wished that Father Christmas would bring you something you

really wanted this year?

Why not visit H4C and make a wish list of all your favourite goodies? We

will keep it safely so that your family and friends can be sure of buying

something you will love. Looks like that’s a third problem solved.

“I want some crackers,

And I want some candy;

I think a box of chocolates

Would come in handy;

I don’t mind oranges,

I do like nuts!

And I SHOULD like a

pocket-knife that really cuts.

And, oh! Father Christmas,

if you love me at all,

Bring me a big, red

India-rubber ball!”

Okey dokey! Let’s get on with the introductions!!

I’m Rose… the one with the colourful glasses. I’m supposed

to be in charge, but I’ll leave you to make your own mind up

about that one……

Then there’s my long-suffering husband Bob – he makes sure

there’s enough wood to keep the fire in the manner to which

it has become accustomed. You may not see much of him, as

he tends to get banned for bad behaviour!!! ;-)

And let’s not forget the team of lovely, willing, helpful

elves – they’ll be oh-so-happy to help you with your

shopping, get you a cup of tea/coffee and generally be

cheerily useful.

And now…….. prepare to meet your makers!

How to sort and categorise this rather odd bunch? A gently meandering path

through the various disciplines seems to work just fine, starting with textiles,

then jewellery, metal and wood, ceramics and glass, leather, paint and print.

14 exhibitors are brand-sparkly * NEW * to Handmade this year – a huge

welcome to them – some are (but not in a Levi’s jeans kind of way)

and deserve a medal. Most are from within a 40 mile radius of the

Chapel; a few are exotic ‘outsiders’ who add diversity to the mix. Many

offer workshops - these are listed in ‘Workshops and Courses’ on p41.

w

All have been carefully selected and invited to take part, so ensuring that

Handmade brings you the very best in fantastic quality and value.

Together they make Handmade for Christmas a truly unique event.

~ FAQs ~

Is the Chapel open like this all year?

No. The wonderful array of goodies you see in Handmade for Christmas is here

for an all-too-brief two months each year. As the year’s clock strikes twelve, the

Chapel will revert to being Rose’s workshop/studio.

What happens here for the rest of the year?

1. Rose works here throughout the year, taming colourful wool and silk fibres into

beautiful textural pictures of flowers, moorland, cliffs and beaches. Her work is

usually on display, but there are no regular opening hours. Please ring to make an

appointment.

2. Feltmaking Classes – listed on the website.

3. Other exhibitions and events (see back cover).

If I need to return or exchange an item after H4C has closed, what do

I do?

Don’t panic!! Contact Rose on 07900 580716 or rose@rosehatcher.co.uk and she

will help you get things sorted.

I’d love to be part of Handmade for Christmas – what should I do?

There is no application process for H4C - all exhibitors are here by invitation. The

work is carefully selected to provide the broadest possible choice and best value

for visitors. If your work meets H4C’s high standard of craftsmanship and design and

you live/work within 40 miles of Sturminster Newton, please email Rose with images

and details of what you do.

~The 2017 Exhibitor Survey Results~

Early Bird or Night Owl? Half of our makers/artists are night owls and just a

third are early birds. The rest burn their candles at both ends.

Pie or Pasta? 50% prefer pasta, 30% like pie and 20% are really greedy and

want pasta pie.

Seaside or Mountains for your holidays? 57% love being by the sea, 25%

are at home in the mountains and the rest just adore moorland, farmland, woods

and rivers. Most of us holiday under canvas.

Lemon Drizzle, Chocolate Brownie, Fruit Cake or Profiteroles? Perfectly

equal split, although Caroline is adamant she wants Coffee and Walnut and Becca

insists on Red Velvet cake… Everyone agrees that cake makes the world go round.

Favourite potato variety – Jersey Royals come out tops, beating Maris Piper

into a poor second place. But, if we combine the Maris Piper and King Edward

vote, it reinforces last year’s finding that roasting is THE way to go potatowise…

Half of our makers are totally obsessed with correct grammar, syntax and

spelling - 10% coodnt careless and the remainder have problems with

apostrophe’s. 80% would not trust an on-line diary.

Our taste in music is as varied as our taste in fine literature and most improvise

wildly in the kitchen (pictures on a postcard please!)

So... I must happily conclude (ooh sorry – did I just split an infinitive there?!) that

we have not added a great deal to last year’s research, the conclusion of which

was that most of us would rather be on holiday, camping by the sea, eating roast

potatoes and cake. It’s reassuring to know that nothing really changes….

Glass comes from the sea, my place

of healing. I change its form, layering

different colours and metals, firing it

in the heat of the kiln until it loses its sharp

edges and connects/ flows to become one.

If you want to go far... travel light.

Still loves a Pimms – who doesn’t!
