Exhibitor Information

•Exhibit your work alongside some of the best designer makers in the UK


Why are we different?

Craft in Focus has changed the way the public perceive craft shows and has reinstated the high quality image of Britain's talented designer makers. Craft in Focus now provides makers from all over the country with an opportunity to sell their work to an appreciative audience. We welcome up and coming designers as well more established makers.

The events have been hailed as "A breath of fresh air for craft shows, just what the industry needs" by both visitors and public alike. The shows are now firmly placed in visitors diaries as the "Must Visit Events". The Independent newspaper placed Craft In Focus above all other events of its kind in the country.

Because Craft in Focus is so committed to making a difference we have earned an enviable reputation for staging high quality shows for the public and providing financially successful events for exhibitors.

Our advertising is widespread for all our shows and begins well in advance of the shows to ensure not just maximum visitor attendance, but a quality attendance attracting those who will have a genuine interest in your work.

Selection process

All disciplines will be considered if the work is of a high standard. Makers who have not already exhibited with us will be asked to send photographs of their work and stand set up to accompany their application. Please note that we do not accept bought in work and we will not hesitate to remove an exhibitor from a show for selling work not made by themselves.
