Two Art & Craft Shows

Yesterday was a day for Art & Craft Shows. I went to see two, because they were held in Ljubljana, my home town. It only took me 15 minutes bike ride to get to city centre. I went to the library, bought some fabric and zippers and had a lovely time at both Art & Craft Shows. It is great meeting other artisants and share experiences. I did a bit of crafting in the afternoon, but I'll tell you about that some other time.  

Fair Art in was held in Park Slovenske reformacije under the shadow of big, old trees. Not a lot of visitors, because it was held in this park for the first time and people are not used to it yet.

Art Market has a very long tradition, in fact it has been held in Ljubljana's city centre since 2000. It is held every Saturday from May till October. It has great location, just a few hundred merets from the city centre. Lots of turists, nice atmosphere. 

I hope you enjoyed those photos and until next time, have a great Sunday!

My first ArtMar

Hello and Happy Monday! The weekend sure did pass very quickly, didn't it? I hope you had a great one!

I was in Maribor on Saturday at ArtMar on my first Art & Craft Show this year. It was a hot and long day and when I got home at 9.30 pm I was dead tired. But I had a helper with me, so I had a chance to chat with oter artisants and made a few photos. Here's craft fair through my camera lenses (except for last 4 photos, those were made by Danijela Lončar). Thank you all who came by my stall and commended on my work!

That's me and my little, entertaining helper. He made my (and I bet everyone else's) day full of laughter!

On Sunday I was relaxing and by relaxing I sewing :-) I made this pencil case just for me.

Art and Craft Shows in June

We had a long and cold Winter, followed by a cold and wet Spring. It's finally getting a bit wormer and we (or at least I do) feel the need to go out, meet friends, meet new people. What better way to do it, if not over the weekend? You can take a walk through the old streets of Ljubljana, Maribor or Ptuj, you can take a walk into the park, buy some friut at a marketplace, drink coffee, read a newspaper and along the way also visit one of many Art Shows. And belive me, there are many Art and Craft Show in Slovenia to choose from. You really don't need to go far. Here are a few ideas in chronological order.

Umetniški sejem park Tabor will be held this Saturday in Ljubljana's Park Tabor. For those of you who don't know where this is - park Tabor is very close to Slovene etnographic museum (SEM) and it so happens that this Saturday SEM is organizing workshop for families on working with clay. So you could visit both workshop and Art Fair! Slovene Etnographic museum's Cafe has very lovely ambience as well as good coffee & cakes. Perfect! I love this part of Ljubljana and I truly admire Prostorož for what they do. You rock, keep it going!

ARTMAR will also be held this Saturday in Maribor's Grajski trg. If you'd like to meet and chat with me, this is the fair you need to see. There will be around 60 artisans, lots of workshops, live music and vintage corner where you can exchange clothes. What more do you need? I like Maribor and it's nice atmosphere, friendly people, so I just can't wait until Saturday. Come and say hi!

FairArt will be held on June the 15th in Ljubljana's Park Slovenske reformacije. I've never been to FairArt, but the Park itself is very beautiful. 40 artisants, 2 free workshops. This Fair is definitely on my "to see" list.

cART - sejem unikatnih izdelkov is held every 3rd Saturday in Celje in front of Osrednja knjižnica Celje. I've never been, but I hear it's very nice.

TUU - Tržnica unikatov in ustvarjalnosti is also held every 3rd Saturday in old part of Ptuj.

Tal1t - creativty and talent expo is held every 4th Sunday, that means it will be held on June the 30th. Where? In Koper's Prešernov trg.

ARTish is very well know and doesn't need any more presentation. It his held every last Saturday in Ljubljana's Gornji trg. Next will be held on June the 29th.

Sejem starin, domače obrti in darov narave is also held every last Saturday in Piran's Tartinijev trg and it's organized by Anbot. I love this show because it's held near the sea and the atmosphere is just beautiful.

Did I miss anything? Do you have any good or bad impressions or experince with art shows? I'd love to know! Let me know below in the comments!

Park Tabor

I love Spring not only because days are getting longer and warmer, but also because all sort of outdoor activities are going on almost every Weekend! Last Saturday I went to see Art Fair in park Tabor. There was also garage sale. Don't worry if you missed it, next will be on June the 8th.

Saturdays are perfect for visiting markets, metting with friends, drinking coffee, reading newspaper right? Combine it with visiting Art Fair and you have a perfect day! Next Art Fair called ARTish will be held this Saturday in Ljubljana's Gornji trg. Don't miss it!

Until next time, have a great time!
