Event Updates

We have created our Online Craft Village to support our valued exhibitors. As small businesses, they have gone to extraordinary lengths this year to keep trading despite the pandemic - many have been unable to sell their work at craft fairs as most of them were cancelled.

Now is the perfect time to show your support. Take a wander through our Online Craft Village to see makers who either exhibited or would have been exhibiting with Craft In Focus during 2020 - it has links to their websites, shops and social media pages where you can often buy direct. Your support could be critical to their livelihoods, and will be greatly appreciated!


A virtual version of our 2020 West Horsley Place event is available here.


A virtual version of our 2020 Winchester Desire Jewellery & Silversmithing event is available here.


We're Good To GoCraft In Focus have been awarded the We're Good To Go industry standard from Visit England, confirming it is adhering to the Government's Covid-19 re-opening guidance.

Due to the Covid-19 situation, we have had to cancel our final two events of 2020, for Winchester and West Horsley Place, but we remain "Good to go" for when things eventually pick up.

In the ongoing restrictions please consider buying from small businesses this year as more than ever before they need your support. If you use the online virtual listings for our exhibitors you'll be buying from the person who has designed and made the product themselves.

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.
