Interior Resolution’ – Bio’s from Designers

(Listen to them in Conversation at 7.30pm on Monday 8th November in the Wellness Workshop)

Rohan Blacker
After a varied career of being a matrimonial lawyer, a chef and a restaurateur, Rohan Blacker veered sideways into his natural habitat of the home…first setting up sofa.com, and then turning his attention to designing and selling lamps and lighting at Pooky.

John Evetts
John Evetts has worked for the Landmark Trust for over 40 years presenting their interiors and advising on the restoration and setting. He is currently working on a Castle near Inverness and an old Hall outside Leeds. In his own right he advises on conservation, restoration and planning and is renovating a listed farmhouse in Saintbury……..when he isn’t sleeping in the van to get an early start at antique fairs.’

Edward Bulmer

Edward Bulmer has been an interior designer for over 30 years working in some of the finest buildings in the UK.  He is renowned for his deep architectural knowledge and firm foundation in history of art.  He has an acute eye for detail and quality.  In recent years due to his increasing concern for the environment, he founded a natural paint company called Edward Bulmer Natural Paint.  As an artist and colourman he loves creating the perfect palette for people’s homes, colours we can live with.  But above all this is a campaign to change the way modern paint is made, instead of being plastic based, EBNP paint is plant based and fundamentally kind to the environment in the way that it is made and the raw materials used.

Stallholder Testimonal’s

“A quick thank you for organising such a fantastic fair, I hope it was a resounding success from your point of view and of course for Wellchild. 
It was spectacularly well organised,  I thoroughly enjoyed myself, sold lots of honey and shopped hard! The shoppers were delightful and excellent quality. I thought the stalls were of the highest standard and variety and really couldn’t have asked for more.
So … A huge thanks to you and  your team. It is a big deal to organise at that level and a fair that I was very proud to be a part of.”

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for another amazing Christmas Cotswold Fair. Beautifully organised, fabulous stalls and very pleased with how much we sold (particularly as our price point is so low!)”

“Thanks you so much for a great fair, what a fab few days!! So well organised! From set up,  parking, breakdown friendly stall holders and the great crowds who came to shop. Thank you so much for having me I throughly enjoyed the whole event! Thanks again for all your hard work.”
