Carving and chrome

There’s a busy weekend coming up in Strathspey – lots of brilliant events for residents and visitors. I’m getting ready to run stalls with my mugs and pine prints at both. It’s great to be at local events – meeting old friends and new.

Saturday sees Carve Carrbridge, the popular chainsaw carving competition. It’s fascinating to watch the competitors create artworks out of massive pieces of wood. And Carrbridge is such a vibrant community – everyone turns out to support the event.

On Sunday I’ll be much closer to home at Motormania at Grantown. There’ll be scores of shiny vintage vehicles on display in the High Street, along with stalls and activities for all the family. I’m there with the Cairngorms Farmers Market, so there’ll be lots of food and craft to tempt you. Looking forward to a great weekend!

Craft in Carrbridge

Getting ready for the first craft fair of 2017 and it’s pretty close to home.

I’ll be at Bridge 300 in Carrbridge on Saturday May 20. It’s a big weekend of community events to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the village’s iconic Packhorse Bridge.

I live in Carrbridge a few years ago and it’s got a great community spirit so I’m really looking forward to this.

The craft fair is in the Village Hall on Saturday, 11am-2pm. I’ll have my wildlife mugs and the pine prints on sale.

There’s also a heap of other events going on from Friday to Sunday, including historical exhibitions and live music and dancing. Find out more on the Carrbridge website.

Hope to see you there!
