New venue for popular Henley craft event
"The finest furniture makers & silversmiths in the UK."
New dates…new venue…new experience; the organisers of The Craft and Design Experience have announced a new venue for their fair this summer.
It will take place from 24th-26th June at Henley Meadows, a short walk from the town centre and adjacent to Fawley Court where the event was first staged and opened by the then Shadow Arts Minister, Boris Johnson.
The Craft and Design Experience has earned an enviable reputation for selecting only the very best professional designers, artists and craftsmen and, with the resurging interest in designer crafts, the event is expected to be as popular as ever. Visitors are able to shop for unusual contemporary items in a relaxing atmosphere, view a wide range of demonstrations or take part in various craft related workshops.
Special features this year include a varied programme of live music, Chinese lion dancing, storytellers, silhouette cutting and a sculpture garden.
For the first time there will also be ‘Inspired’ – an exhibition of work by some of the finest furniture makers and contemporary silversmiths in the UK. For those wishing to have a go themselves there are workshops including blacksmithing, a potter’s wheel, leatherwork and felting.
Opening times are 10am-5pm each day. Advance tickets are now on sale at a reduced price or purchase on the door at £10 for adults or £1 for children (5-16). For further information and advance ticket sales visit the website or contact CDE Ltd on 01622 747325.
