The Contemporary Craft Fair, June 11-13 at Bovey Tracey in Devon, is the premier craft event in the South West, celebrating the very best of British designer-making. With an unrivalled reputation for showcasing some of the finest crafts in the country, style savvy shoppers, with an eye for the chic and unique, will be making a beeline for beautiful Dartmoor in June for a three-day shopping spectacular offering a stunning selection of covetable, contemporary designs. This exceptional occasion is organised by a team headed by Sarah James, Event Director.

From fashion accessories to functional and decorative objects for your home, you’ll be tempted by the finest handmade jewellery,

gorgeous bespoke leather handbags, chic furniture, fabulous fashions and outstanding interior products in ceramic, silver, glass, metal, wood and textiles.

Over 165 of the UK’s most talented designer/makers will be exhibiting their work at this impressive celebration of contemporary craft, offering you the chance to be the envy of your friends and family by coming home with an affordable original designer item.

You’ll also have the opportunity to meet the acclaimed designers behind these exquisite handmade items and get your own creative juices flowing by booking into one of the event’s workshops. Here, you can have a stab at a variety of activities including making mosaics, jewellery, stained glass and sculpture to name but a few. There will be plenty to keep the little ones entertained too, with a fun-filled, action-packed Kid’s Craft tent where they can get creative (and messy!) trying their hand at weaving, silk painting, candle dipping, mosaics and rag rug making and they will be able to take their unique creations home.

We asked Sarah to give us some background on this handmade heaven and the inspiration behind it?
