Attention DIY enthusiasts! From September 18th – 20th, Kirstie Allsopp’s Handmade Fair is taking place at the beautiful Hampton Court Palace and this is one event you are not going to want to miss.
Not only will you be able to buy craft supplies and handmade gifts in the shopping village, but there will be live demos and skills workshops with experts going on all weekend. Kirstie herself will of course be there too, demonstrating and speaking with top makers, designers and crafts people (including Mollie Makes Magazine, Will Taylor of Bright Bazaar, wedding planner Sarah Haywood, potter Emma Bridgewater and Etsy!) in the Super Theatre.
The skills workshops are the perfect way for you to develop your expertise or learn new techniques, and will be taking place on a wide range of topics including yarn and textiles, seasonal, fashion accessories, upcycling and papercraft.
There is even going to be a wedding tent hosted by Hobbycraft which will give you the perfect opportunity to learn some new skills for your upcoming wedding. You’ll have the chance to learn calligraphy, find out how to make your own marbled stationery, and even put together some beautiful floral arrangements!
Every ticket to The Handmade Fair includes one skills workshop*, and each session lasts between 30 minutes and an hour. Content in the wedding tent is the same each day.
