The Queen of Handmade, Kirstie Allsopp returns to host The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court Palace from 18th-20th of September. The craft fair, which is sponsored by Hobbycraft and in association with Mollie Makes, saw its inaugural launch in 2014 and was the first craft fair of its kind; mixing shopping with hands on crafting to deliver an unforgettable experience for thousands of keen crafters.
‘2014 was incredible,’ says Kirstie, ‘We created an event
which saw craft lovers of all ages and abilities, join together to
share, buy and make. I’m thrilled to be heading back to Hampton Court
Palace again this September to create an even better experience. Watch
this space for information about a Christmas craft event as well.’
The event brings together Britain’s best producers of crafting supplies, handmade items and artisan foods, and invites craft enthusiasts and lovers of all things homemade to come and join in the action.
Throughout the event different craft exhibitors, Kirstie and other house hold names such as Annie Sloane and Fiona Cairns, will host craft workshops that last between 30 minutes and one hour, including jewellery and accessory making, paper crafting, sewing, knitting, upcycling and even how to craft the perfect handmade wedding.
