Craft & Jewellery Fairs
Craft in Focus Craft and Design Fair, RHS Garden Wisley Spring - 29 April to 3 May 2020 - Cancelled
Concerns about Coronavirus - We have just heard from Craft in Focus (13.3.20), who organise the RHS Wisley Craft and Design Fair, ensuring us that at this stage, there is no intention of cancelling the event. The RHS Wisley Craft and Design Fair is a garden-based open air event and whilst no-one knows what the future holds, at this stage, following the advice of Public Health England, it still looks unlikely that the Government would be looking to cancel events of this type due to its widely open nature and so I am busy in the studio making new work for the fair. This is a wonderful event so please do put the dates in your diary!
Craft In Focus Craft and Design Fair, Hever Castle, Hever, Kent – 10 to 13 September 2020
This event is just on my doorstep and is set in the stunning, award-winning Hever Castle Gardens with 125 acres of glorious grounds with the backdrop of the historic castle – the childhood home of Anne Boleyn. Children can enjoy the fabulous adventure playground, while visitors of all ages can enjoy the challenge of finding their way through the Water Maze and the 100 year old Yew Maze. Come and spend the whole day here as there is so much to do including enjoying the work of some of the UK’s finest designer makers and contemporary artists.
School Gambia Art Exhbition, Yalding Church, Yalding – 28 to 29 November 2020
SchoolGambia is a local based charity which started in 1999 when Karen and Tony decided, after a visit to the Gambia, to help build two classrooms which they have developed into a school that provides education to any student no matter their background or ability. They now have 10 classrooms and have increased enrolment from 100 to 575 pupils between the ages of 3 to 16. Importantly, they have introduced a teacher training sponsorship programme and are a model of educational excellence for all Gambian Nursery and Basic Cycle Schools. One of the fundraising events, which I'm helping to organise is an art exhibition in our beautiful local church. We are very lucky to have many talented artists in the area and every penny raised goes directly to benefit the students at Farato School. We'd love you to support this very worthy cause!

Over a cup of coffee, in the relaxed atmosphere of my kitchen, riffle through the indian medicine cubboard that stores my ready to wear Woodlands Collection and if you don't find the perfect piece then we can discuss your requirements and I can can design a bespoke piece designed and made just for you. We have some fabulous local pubs and countryside walks so why not make a day of your visit.
