New for 2019
Following the forthcoming Christmas Contemporary Craft Fair at RHS Garden Wisley, which is on from 21st to 25th November 2018, we are very excited to announce some brand new events for 2019!
Craft In Focus at Trentham Gardens, Staffordshire – 6-9 June 2019
Our event here which will feature around 100 of the UK’s finest contemporary artists and makers, will be staged in marquees within Trentham Gardens with its vast perennial plantings providing breath-taking vistas. This stunning contemporary revival of an historic garden is amongst the very best in the UK. The gardens have been transformed over the last 15 years and are now some of the some of the finest in Britain with the revival being led by multi-Chelsea gold-medal winner Tom Stuart-Smith.
The revival of the gardens led the Telegraph newspaper to describe Trentham Gardens as ‘The garden makeover of the decade’ and Trentham has collected an abundance of awards including being awarded a Gold Accolade by Visit England in 2015, 2016 and 2017.
A visit here offers a great day out for everyone!
