The Handmade Fair presented by Kirstie Allsopp will return to Warwickshire this summer for the ultimate creative day out.
The fair will return to Ragley Hall, Park and Gardens for the second year running from 11th to 13th May, where guests can enjoy an array of expert talks and hands-on workshops as they indulge in the perfect day out for craft lovers.
The fair programme will include live ‘craft-offs’ from the experts, Q&As and demonstrations from some of the country’s best-known makers, as well as a series of creative workshops where visitors can learn new skills, and share tips and tricks with like-minded creatives. Workshops will cover needle felting, calligraphy, wirework and Indian block printing, to name just a few.
Visitors will also have the chance to purchase some of the finest tools, materials, and beautiful handmade products from a range of handpicked sellers, while sampling delicious artisan food.
TV presenter, Kirstie Allsopp, will top the bill, followed by Keith Brymer Jones, British potter, ceramic designer and judge from The Great Pottery Throw Down and DJ, Edith Bowman.
Kirstie said: “The Handmade Fair at Ragley Hall is a fabulous way for craft enthusiasts and lovers of all things handmade to get a little taste of everything. So come along, meet like-minded people, and get inspired to build on an existing skill or ignite a brand new passion – we can’t wait to see what you create!”
