TOBY’S GARDEN FESTIVAL
This will be our first time at this popular event, held at the historic site of POWDERHAM CASTLE overlooking the River Exe about 6 miles south of Exeter. It is home to the Courtenays, Earls of Devon and is well worth a visit at any time.
Our stand will be in the Artisan Barn in the company of many other amazing artists and craftspeople and will be held on Friday 29th April and Saturday 30th April, between 10am and 5pm.
We’ve been invited to join this group of highly talented and creative artists and makers for their event at Torrington Castle Community Centre, Torrington, EX38 8AA on Saturday 14th May between 10am and 4pm. We feel honoured and excited to be joining them there, and hope you can come and join us too. Stands will be indoors and in the gardens, with live music and fresh food available, so it sounds as if it could be fun.
Every year, we love being at the events held in this exciting venue, situated in a beautiful garden setting and is for anyone interested in high quality handmade arts and crafts.
The events are held in the Garden Room which has lovely views over the gardens and excellent refreshments available just across the courtyard in their restaurant at very reasonable prices.
Our first event here this year will be at the Craft Fair running from Friday 24th June to Sunday 26th June. It is part of the Rose Weekend, so the emphasis will be on floral themes.
Then later in the year, we’ll be here again from Thursday 1st December to Saturday 3rd December. For us, there’s a bonus to being here then: not only do we get to meet up with some wonderful makers, but we can do some shopping of our own!
EXETER CRAFT FESTIVAL
This amazing event has taken place in the beautiful surroundings of Exeter’s Cathedral Green for over 40 years.
The tented ‘village’ becomes home to 100 or more artists and makers, some of them demonstrating their skills, over 3 days in July. There are also entertainers and food stalls on hand to feed the body as well as the senses. All in all, this is an event not to be missed.
The dates to put in your diary are Thursday July 7th (10.00 – 5.30), Friday July 8th (9.30 – 5.30),and Saturday July 9th (9.30 – 5.00).
This year we will be taking part in Devon Open Studios, a county-wide event held in mid-September. This will give you the chance to see where we work and get our inspiration and, of course, buy our work directly from us.
This event will run from Saturday 10th to Sunday 25th September; we’ll post our opening times and dates here shortly.
We’ll be back at this lovely event again this year. It will be held in Butcher’s Hall, Tavistock PL19 0AL on Saturday 15th October. Doors will be open from 10am to 4pm. It’s a lovely venue, next to the Pannier market right in the centre of this ancient Stannary town, with an excellent atmosphere.
ARTISAN CRAFT FAIR
We’re delighted to have been invited to take part in this Craft Fair, as it proclaims it will have ‘artisan work by some of the best Westcountry craftspeople’.
This is not one to miss! It will be held in Alphington Village Hall, Ide Lane, Exeter EX2 8UP on 4th, 5th and 6th November. Opening times will be 2pm to 7pm on Friday 4th, 10am to 4.30pm on Saturday 5th, 10am to 4pm on Sunday 6th, giving you ample opportunities to get beautiful things in good time for a certain Big Event in late December!
And here we are again, back in the Garden Room at Rosemoor, one of our favourite venues.
Unusually, this event will be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 1st, 2nd and 3rd of December. The opening times will be 11am to 7pm each day, with a half hour break from 4-4:30pm. These times may seem strange until you realise that Rosemoor will also be holding their annual illuminations of the gardens then. And that’s a wonderful experience!
WHITE ROOM CHRISTMAS FAIR, CREDITON
Our final outing of 2022 will be one that is local to us, here in Crediton. The White Room houses a number of artists studios and a large exhibition space, so there should be a good selection of arts and crafts available for those definitely last minute purchases. Or for something special for someone special.
It’s a one day event on Sunday 4th of December, between 10am and 4pm.
The White Room is at 50 Commonmarsh Lane, Lords Meadow, Crediton EX17 1DN
We look forward to seeing you at one or more of these events.
