Our select group of artisans and small British businesses make desirable homewares, gifts, clothing, jewellery and accessories. They include alpaca farmers, who grow and create a wonderful range of clothing, knitwear designers, sculptors, woodworkers, jewellers, potters, basket makers, photographers and artists, to name but a few.

At the show, you’ll have the chance to see the work of our artisans, including Pam Peters (jewellery and glass); Pam Mainwaring (hand-knitted luxury throws, hats, scarves and cushions); Jude McKenna (limited edition prints and Christmas cards); Ted Bruce (baskets); Amanda Woakes (silver jewellery); Margaret Gradwell (Harris Tweed cushions); Linda & Jade Hitchcock (ladies luxury alpaca clothing and jewellery); Rebecca Dawson (ceramics & textiles) and Antony Dala (sculptor and homewares). Plus, our team will be on hand to talk to you about the work we do with all our other British artisans, who work so hard to create distinctive and original treasures. You will also be able to buy any of our products at the fair via our on-line store inclusive of UK mainland delivery.
