It was the first Frome Independent market of the year, and as well as all the fabulous stalls and a great craft market in the Cheese & Grain, the Silk Mill ran an Open Studios event.
I love the Silk Mill. It's a wonderful historical building dating back to at least 1823. I love the fact that it was derelict but has been gradually brought back to life over the past 10 years by a couple who must surely have risked bankruptcy to do so. I love the fact that they have made room for lots of industrial artefacts to be displayed. This clamp, one of a pair, was huge - the hinges on either side (which I should have included more of for scale) are for full-size doors. Most of all, I love the fact that it's being converted into studios for local artists and artisans.
Thank you for all the stars for yesterday's wedding photo.
