Win Tickets to The Contemporary Craft Festival

Set in idyllic surrounding at the edge of Dartmoor, The Contemporary Craft Festival is brimming with opportunities to meet and buy work directly from nearly 200 of your favourite or newly-found makers.  Craftspeople from across Devon and the whole of the UK get together for a celebration of craft and making.

A brand new feature this year, is the fair showcasing emerging makers and giving these young businesses some support in their early years. Just 20 businesses have been hand picked to be part of this new, exciting development.

The Craft Festival will be hosting The Great Windsor Chair Race, a collective of some the UK’s most exciting, award winning furniture designers, getting back to basics making Windsor Chairs, featuring Gareth Neal, Chris Eckersley, Carl Clerkin and William Warren. Who can make the most chairs over the weekend? It's a test of speed and skill as only the best will win! The Blacksmithing Guild will also be there for the first time and both these light hearted competitions will celebrate the Cultural Olympiad in style. Completing the line up of Champions of Craft will be demonstrations of ceramics, glass blowing, stone carving, weaving, knitting, spoon carving, blacksmithing, furniture making & calligraphy.

The Children’s Craft Tent is inspired by the textile collection at The Royal Albert Museum in Exeter. Children will learn to weave, print, knit & paint on cloth complimented by a variety of workshops for adults.
