Designer and Maker Fair

Join us this June for the summer edition of our Designer & Maker Fair

Our Designer and Maker Fair is back this summer! On 18 and 19 June, our Hay Barn will be brimming with stalls from local and independent artists, ceramicists, makers and designers. Discover beautifully-crafted products, support local independent businesses, pick up a unique and memorable gift for a loved one, and why not treat yourself too!

Bringing together over 30 of the finest local makers, there’ll be a wide selection of handcrafted, one-of-a-kind homewares, fashion and accessories to explore – from textiles to ceramics and jewellery, and woodwork to clothing, candles, stationery and much more! As well as the opportunity to purchase some very special handmade items, the makers and designers will be on hand to discuss their work, influences and ideas.

Designers and makers joining us this year include Makani, who empower refugee women selling their artisanal fashion and homeware; Brighton-based SHIV Textiles, who transform dead-stock yarn into accessories and naturally dyed; block-printed fabrics from Sarah Burns; traditionally made candles by WAX Atelier; bold sustainable children’s clothing by O Moon and ever-lasting dried flower bouquets from PHOHM. With plenty more to be announced, there’s something for everyone.

Make a day of it! Soak up summer with a stroll around our walled garden and book a visit to the house and galleries. Our café partner Caccia & Tails will be on-hand to fuel your retail-therapy with freshly made Italian street food and delicious tea and cake.

The £5 ticket helps support events such as this one as well as our future event programmes and exhibitions.
