After what seemed like aeons this Saturday was finally the Northern Craft Fair. I was up and out of the house early to make my way over to Northern Monk Refectory to indulge myself in all things creative.

Northern Craft is an independent collective of artists formed by Sean Mort (who I think I spotted) and Carley Batley (currently living it up with a dog in the US), to promote the creative craft scene in the North. They have held several fairs in the past, however this was my first.
