Now in its 26th year, this annual 2-day event features a curated selection of handmade crafts across all media, including homewares, jewellery, ceramics, stationery, accessories, furniture, lighting, textiles and print.

The festival champions great design and the process of making, both traditional and modern techniques and skills. This event offers a relaxed environment for visitors to browse and meet and buy directly from the makers.
