DAY TRIP | KIRSTIE ALLSOPP'S HANDMADE FAIR
NEW! SATURDAY 23 JUNE : EARLY BOOKING ESSENTIAL
THE HANDMADE FAIR IS COMING TO WILTSHIRE ... & WE'RE BOWOOD-BOUND
The Handmade Fair is making its debut at Bowood House this June, with an exciting schedule of talks and making in the Super Theatre, Skills Workshops, and Grand Makes, as well as a huge range of lovely makers selling their wares - there’s lots for everyone to enjoy. Join us for a wonderful day out, and come away with everything you need to make your life and home more beautiful.
Brought to you by Kirstie Allsopp, The Handmade Fair is all about appreciating the beauty of handmade, and learning the skills to become a maker yourself. Whether your day at the Fair teaches you how to make something yourself, upcycle a piece you already own, or if you buy it from an expert, it’s here to help everyone to make their life a little more beautiful. The Shopping Villages are full to the brim with handmade products of the highest quality, brought to you by our hand-picked and incredibly talented makers, along with an enviable range of tools and materials. The Super Theatre, Skills Workshops and Grand Makes are hosted by the UK’s most renowned experts, so you can be sure you’re learning from the best in the business.
It’s not only a fun day out, but you’ll also be able to take away a bundle of skills and knowledge that you can use to improve your own life and home.
