Why Visit A Craft In Focus Event:

RHS Hyde HallOur events have become widely recognised for presenting a stunning and varied choice of contemporary work. The fairs present highly talented exhibitors who have been selected for their superb and innovative craftsmanship and have a genuine passion for the work they create.

  • See and purchase from an exciting range from both emerging British talent as well as more established designer makers. Commissioning special items is welcomed from many of the exhibitors, allowing you to purchase something that is truly unique and special to you, and often offers an opportunity to be involved in the creative process.
  • Meet contemporary craftmakers to purchase something special that has been designed and handcrafted in the UK rather than mass-produced overseas.
  • Discuss the designs with the makers and discover how the work is created and what provides the makers with their inspiration.
  • Purchase unique products of a quality that is not seen amongst the mass produced items on the high street.

Our rigorous selection process ensures only the very best makers are selected, and our reputation for bringing together such a wealth of talent in one place is unrivalled.
