Peak District Artisans Great Dome Art & Design Fair is back!

From July 21st-23rd the Peak District Artisans will be back at the Devonshire Dome in Buxton for The Great Dome Art & Design Fair.

The fair, which attracts hundreds of visitors over three days, is the biggest annual event held by the region’s national and internationally recognized group of creatives.

Held in one of the most stunning domed buildings in Europe the fair will feature work by around 35 members of the PDA and feature everything from ceramics and textiles to fine art and photography.

In addition, several artists will be giving demonstrations on their stands and there will be the opportunity to chat to members about their work,

Visitors will also be able to take part in the Postcard Raffle, which has been a regular part of the Dome Art Fair since 2008. The raffle offers the opportunity for visitors to buy a raffle ticket and win a small piece of original art. It is always popular and this year the proceeds will be donated to Derbyshire Cave rescue

Ever since the Buxton Great Dome Art Fair was opened by their patron Dowager Duchess of Devonshire in 2008, the event has grown in popularity.

Lord Burlington, heir to Chatsworth, has stepped into the shoes filled by his grandmother and will attend the fair as its patron.

The Peak District Artisans Great Dome Art & Design Fair is renowned as one of the most prestigious showcases for Derbyshire’s wonderfully diverse artistic community and owes its longevity to the quality of the artists and their work.

It’s the place for people to add some beautiful and unique handmade pieces to the home, to buy stunning handcrafted jewellery, or discover something exquisitely painted to hang on the wall.

And it offers artists and artisans from the Derbyshire, Cheshire and South Yorkshire region the opportunity to showcase their latest work.

“The Great Dome Art & Design Fair gives people the chance to demonstrate their support for makers and artists by investing in an original work they can treasure forever,” said a PDA spokesperson.

“It is also a fantastic way to celebrate the artistic life of the region and all the incredible talent which we have here whilst enjoying the stunning surroundings of the Great Dome in Buxton.”
