As we near ever closer to the fair today we introduce to you another fairy tale fair newbie- Vicky of Woah there Pickle, and her fab lino cuts which we love! Find out all about them, and her of course…
Tell us a bit about you and what you do/ make….
My name is Vicky and I’m a printmaker based by the seaside in Brighton. I specialise in linocut prints and cards of bits and bobs like robots and dinosaurs, with an occasional bit of foiling thrown in because who doesn’t like something shiny!
How long have you been making your craft items?
I’ve been printmaking for about 4 years now and can’t get enough of it.
Do you have a best seller? If so what is it? And do you have some special festive items planned to sell?
Of course 🙂 My best selling prints are the Monster Hand and my rendition of Salvador Dali’s Lobster Phone. I have also got a range of different Christmas card designs including Elfis who is new for this year and going down a storm.
What do you enjoy most about your craft?
It’s magic! On the base of it, it could not be more simple. All you do is carve a design into lino, ink it up and print it to paper, but how ever long you’ve been doing it you still don’t know how its going to look when it’s printed so you are constantly surprised and then no two prints are exactly the same.
Do you take part in other craft events (fairs, open houses, markets etc…)?
I sure do, I’ll be at Craftaganza, Art Junkie and Makers Boutique this Christmas. I’m also in the pop up exhibition at the Fishing Quarter Gallery in Brighton until the 21st Dec.
What are your plans/ ambitions for the future? Or have you already achieved them?
The studio that I work in has some amazing screen printing equipment so next year I’m hoping to get my grubby mitts on that and do some more printing on fabric.
Sum up what Christmas is to you in 5 words or less!:
Panto shouting ‘He’s Behind you!!!!’
Any other comments you wish to make:
I’m really excited to be selling at the Fairytale Fair this year, It’s going to make for a magical Christmas for sure!
