Craft In Focus Returns to Waterperry Gardens With Two Exciting Events

Waterperry House and Gardens 01 Inst mi9twf

Craft In Focus is thrilled to announce its return to Waterperry Gardens with two stunning events – their Celebrating Ceramics Festival and a Desire Jewellery and Silversmithing Fair. Set against the backdrop of Waterperry House, these fairs will take place from 19-21 July. One ticket will give admission to both events allowing visitors to meet, engage with and purchase from over 200 skilled exhibitors.

Held in semi open-sided marquees adjacent to the beautiful grounds of Waterperry Gardens, these fairs will showcase a diverse array of makers from the world of contemporary ceramics and feature some of the UK’s premier contemporary silversmiths and independent jewellery makers working in various media.

Visit the Desire Jewellery & Silversmithing Fair to discover and purchase stunning contemporary jewellery and exquisite silverware. Exhibitors have been selected for their superb an innovative designs and craftsmanship as well as outstanding quality and are all independent professional makers. Anyone celebrating a special occasion – maybe a birthday or anniversary - may also like to speak to the makers about commissioning bespoke pieces of jewellery or silverware. Several visitors in the past have commissioned engagement or wedding rings at the event and, by working with the designer maker, have been able to have input into the design and produce something that means so much more and is completely individual. Many of the makers will also be happy to speak about remodelling inherited jewellery to give it a more contemporary feel.

The Celebrating Ceramics Festival offers visitors the opportunity to see the best in contemporary ceramics - all with the ‘wow’ factor. Visitors can purchase directly from these ceramic artists, many of whom will showcase their skills through live demonstrations giving an insight into the techniques involved with working with clay and creating the pieces on display. And don’t miss the Make Mine Miniature display – a competition for exhibitors to make a unique miniature piece which is a true representation of their work.

A visit will make an interesting and fun day out for all ages and will include an exciting selection of food, drink, and live music. Within the Waterperry Estate, there’s a farm shop, museum, playground, tea shop, plant centre and garden shop, gallery, and gift shop. It’s a fabulous day out for everyone! The stunning landscaped ornamental gardens at Waterperry are a magical place where you are surrounded by beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers, classical borders, modern planting, secret corners, and long vistas, not forgetting the waterlily canal and arboretum.

Advance booking required. Early Bird Tickets can be purchased at a reduced price in advance from the website
