Exciting Addition to the May Craft Fair at Hever Castle
The Craft in Focus Craft Fair returns to Hever Castle in May featuring around 140 professional contemporary craftmakers and artists displaying and selling work in various disciplines including glass, textiles, woodwork, jewellery, garden art, metalwork and artwork as well as food and drink.
In addition, this year, previous contestants from TV’s The Great Pottery Throw Down will be displaying their work in a special Potters’ Village and will also be staging duelling challenges amongst themselves such as throwing as many pots as possible within 10 minutes, the best sculpture in 15 minutes and building the tallest structure in 15 minutes with a set amount of clay.
They will also be offering workshops where visitors can have a go at creating something themselves in clay as well as demonstrations which will include raku and small wheel throwing creating miniature pieces on a tiny wheel.
All exhibitors at the fair have designed and made the work that they display and have been selected for their individuality and innovation in contemporary design, as well as outstanding technical ability.
Artists and craftmakers at this event come from throughout the UK, with a number of them from Kent.
The event will be held in semi open-sided marquees within the award-winning gardens set in 150 acres of glorious grounds with the backdrop of the historic castle – the childhood home of Anne Boleyn.
Children can also enjoy exploring three play areas including Tudor Towers adventure playground.
