The Handmade Fair returns for its fifth year

The Handmade Fair is back on The Green at Hampton Court Palace in September.

The Fair, featuring a wealth of hands-on workshops with some of the best craft talent in the business, aims to inspire and delight craft lovers for the fifth year running. It runs from September 14-16.

At this year’s Handmade Fair, visitors can try a variety of crafts, from willow weaving and needle felting to lino cutting and brush lettering, plus all the painting, sewing, paper craft and other handmade artistry both beginners and more experienced makers could wish for.

Creative sessions will fall into one of four categories: Paint & Print; Home & Garden; Sewing & Textiles and Paper & Pens, giving makers the chance to focus on their particular passion or try a little bit of everything.

A vast array of foodie delights will be on offer such as The Soulful Food Company for healthy wholesome food, to Los Churros Amigos for a delicious treat.

The newly added Food Theatre will see a range of experts delivering interactive foodie workshops for attendees. From tastings to pairings, they’re bringing the best of artisan food to The Handmade Fair at Hampton Court.

Foodie themes to experience at the Fair include new brunch trends beyond avo-toast; indulgent desserts with a twist such as espresso martini cheesecake; and no-cook recipes perfect for warm weather. Esteemed food magazine Olive has helped to shape and curate the food demos.

The line-up includes:

  • Fair favourite Liz Earle, who will be talking about the importance of gut health
  • Entertaining tips with Great British Bake Off winner Nancy Birtwhistle
  • The West London Wine School, who will be hosting a cheese and wine pairing workshop
