Pitt Fest 2015: Handmade!

Two weeks ago, we packed up a little collection of our wares and headed down to Pitt Fest 2015. Organised by the Pitt Rivers Museum, it was held outside on the lawns of the university museums. A celebration of all things handmade and crafty, there were hands-on family workshops throughout the day, as well as live performances from local dance and music groups, and a market from local producers and makers. We were there as part of Independent Oxford, along with fellow Oxford indies 2 North Parade, Kinship of Oxford, Shot at an Angle Photography, the Amy Surman Bead Shop and Petite Fleur

It's always lovely to do events with other small independent businesses and this was no exception. We marvelled over Amy's vast selection of crafty jewellery-making goodies, admired William's stunning Oxford prints, Rosie's amazing dinosaur necklaces (I was seriously tempted!) and we all ended up buying some of Pete's delicious cheese, as well as taking home one of Lucy's beautiful flower arrangements.

Plus, I also got to eat this heavenly pesto and olive pizza, fresh from the Secret Pizza Society oven... a pretty good day all-in-all!

Thanks so much to Independent Oxford for having us. Check out their blog for some more pictures...
