Join Kirstie Allsopp, Liz Earle and other experts for a weekend of creative making and inspiration.

Whether your day at the Fair teaches you how to make something yourself, transform a piece you already own, or you buy it from an expert, The Handmade Fair wants to inspire everyone to get making.

Take part in interactive workshops such as crochet, calligraphy and origami and be inspired by book binder Joe Dixon, craft and lifestyle magazine Mollie Makes, and demonstrations by the Orchard Blacksmiths.

New for this year we have:

  • Frances Hetherington Ceramics
  • Purl & Yarn with Emma Jarman 
  • Leather artistry with Karen Blake

Enjoy an abundance of delicious food and drink for lunch, tasty treats from artisan makers to take home or maybe a glass or two of fizz in the afternoon!

The Shopping Villages are full to the brim with handmade products of the highest quality, brought to you by our hand-picked and incredibly talented makers, along with an enviable range of tools and materials.
