Christmas craft fair season is upon us! Fairs give all crafters, makers and keen hobbyists a great opportunity to find inspiration, network, exhibit goods and enjoy some festive fun. We’ve scoured London to find fairs we think you’ll love.
The White Christmas Fair, Battersea
The White Christmas Fair has over 40 stalls to browse, retailing gifts like handmade jewellery and Christmassy snacks, alongside decorations like wreaths and Christmas trees. The Christmas Fair takes place on Saturday 6th December to Sunday 7th.
Winter Village, Hackney
Set up by the trend-setters behind Soho Flea Market and last year's Dalston Christmas Market, this is the place to find contemporary crafts, locally made art and delicious treats. You can also enjoy live entertainment while you shop, to help you get into the Christmassy mood. The Winter Village fair takes place on Friday 5th December to Sunday 7th.
South of England Crafts for Christmas show, West Sussex
Shop everything from bespoke furniture, glasswork and interior design to soaps, jewellery and fashion. If you’re a maker or crafter, then this is your ultimate fair destination. The South of England Crafts for Christmas show runs from Thursday 13th of November to Sunday 16th November 2014.
Now that you’ve got your list together, you’re all set to go out and take the Christmas fair scene by storm and enjoy a cup of mulled wine or two while you’re at it!
