The Craft and Design Experience
Contemporary Craft & Design Fair
Purchase direct from some of the finest contemporary craftmakers and artists in the UK who have been selected to show their work. Work available to view and purchase will include leather, wood, textiles, ceramics, glass, metalwork, jewellery, clothing and more...We do not allow any bought in or imported work at our events so everything you see will have been handcrafted by the exhibitor. Give the high street a miss this weekend and support the UK's creative talent!
Demonstrations and Workshops
Some of the exhibitors will be demonstrating their craft to enable the public to have an insight into the creative processes involved
. There are also a number of workshops where visitors of all ages can have a go themselves - why not make a fascinator, throw a pot, make a silver ring, have a go at stonecarving or create a fabric sculpture?
Within the food marquee this year we have chocolates, preserves, olives, nuts, sausages, cheese, pies, olive oils and sparkling wine.
Throughout the event we will have a range of performers including a traditional jazz band - Jazz Magic, The Barberettes - a lively and entertaining group of female a cappella singers, a modern jazz and swing group - Pink Champagne and The Thames Valley Chorus - a male group singing up-tempo songs in the barbershop style.
Bring your own picnic or buy food on-site from a wide selection including ice cream, pasties, baked potatoes, bhajis and pakoras, woodfired pizza, baguettes, hog roast, crepes and Pimms and rotisserie chicken and salad.
