This year will be the Handmade Fair’s 5th year on The Green at Hampton Court Palace, and my third time in attendance. The addition of a new Food Theatre, offering tastings and foodie workshops, means this year is set to be the best yet.
I am so happy to be able to offer a discount code for any of my readers who wish to attend this year, so keep reading to find out more…
At my last visit, I was overwhelmed by the quality of the craft on display. This included the work of Artist Sheila Metcalfe (affectionately known as The Crochet Queen) who was raising awareness for the Alzheimers Society by making and selling these gorgeous crochet flowers. She was sent crochet flowers from all around the world to raise money for this very worthy cause.
At the Handmade Fair, visitors will be able to explore three types of experience:
The Super Theatre:
These are your chance to hear the latest craft trends, find out insider secrets from top experts and see how some gorgeous designer products are made.
A few years ago I attended a very interesting Super Theatre talk by Fiona Cairn who is the lady who made Prince William and Princess Kate’s wedding cake.
The Skills Workshops:
Want to satisfy your creative cravings? These hour long interactive sessions are so much fun and this year include Eddie Glew of Blithfield Willowcrafts, who is demonstrating how to make a willow bird feeder.
Be inspired and taught how easy it is to craft something beautiful in just a few minutes, from butterfly origami to washi tape greeting cards.
You will also be able to shop to your hearts content as you browse the host of incredible stalls boasting handmade products from a wide range of professional makers.
