festival of crafts

festival of crafts returns 17 & 18 October, 2020

About the festival of crafts: festival of crafts is an annual two day craft event held at Farnham Maltings. Now in its 24th year! The festival is well established in the craft calendar and features a curated selection of makers from across the UK. The work shown is across all media, including but not limited to, homewares, jewellery, ceramics, stationery, accessories, furniture, lighting, textiles and print.

The festival champions great design and the process of making, both traditional and modern techniques and skills. The show offers opportunities to well established craft practitioners as well as first time exhibitors and graduates. The craft festival showcases the very best UK craftspeople and provides a relaxed environment for visitors to browse and buy directly from the makers themselves.

A proud part of Farnham Craft Month, festival of crafts is a covid-secure event.
