This festival is for all things creative, whether you are a supplier, a teacher or a designer/craft person this Festival will showcase all disciplines of creativity.
This Festival is to allow suppliers, teachers and designers to have one platform to showcase their wares, sell their products and get new customers.
We will have craft suppliers from all disciplines, with supplies for sale on the day and hoping that all suppliers can offer discounts and deals for this festival. This is a great way to network and get your products out there, also to increase your client mailing list.
“Craft: an activity involving skill in making things by hand”
Workshops, Classes and Courses…..we know that in this climate, teaching is a great way to earn on a regular basis and share your knowledge. With so many people with ‘more time’ on their hands they are starting to explore their creative side. You can run workshops on the day with pre-booked places, drop in session or sit and try out table. We will promote these sessions and special offers for you on your page and on a special workshops page with your details so customers can book their place with you directly. We request that you send us details of session times well in advance of the festival to ensure good publicity.
Pure craft, we will host a variety of crafts by the designers for this festival. As always we have a limited number of stands and will not have any competition in the room for any trade.
Please do not hesitate to book this event as we want a great standard of work for customers to buy and feel they have some quality products that is valued at the correct price.
