The craft fair will be held in floored and heated marquees in front of the main entrance and features around 160 of the UK's finest professional contemporary craftworkers and artists working in wood, glass, metal, textiles, ceramics and more.
The UK has a wealth of individual and talented designer makers and artists who produce wonderful original items that simply cannot be found amongst the mass-produced and imported goods on the high street.
Craft In Focus has selected the best of these to show at the Christmas event. All exhibitors at Craft In Focus events design and make the work that they display and are selected for their individuality and innovation in contemporary design, as well as outstanding technical ability. The event is a must visit for anyone seeking something unusual and original and produced by an individual business that has a real passion for the work they create. Visitors will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and breathtaking creativity from an exciting range from both emerging British talent as well as more established designer makers.
This event really is a refreshing alternative to Christmas shopping on the predictable high street. On offer, this year also will be some delicious food products to purchase and take away as gifts including handmade chocolates, Christmas cakes and puddings, truckle cheeses, a range of olive oils and balsamic vinegars and a selection of English preserves and chutney. Throughout the event there will be live music from a critically acclaimed concert violinist, Miriam Kramer, the smooth and captivating sounds of the saxophone by Pink Champagne, a female barber shop choir on Thursday evening and the classical guitar sounds of The Corcovado Project.
The craft fair opens from 9 am each day with late night opening on Thursday. Admission is £9. RHS Members and accompanied under 16s free.
Anyone visiting the craft fair this year can also visit the Garden the same day for free saving on the normal Garden admittance. This will enable visitors to combine their craft fair visit with a stroll around the Garden to enjoy the surprising winter colours and the seasonal displays in the awe-inspiring Glasshouse.
