The Contemporary Craft Festival is celebrated as one of the finest craft events in Europe, now officially the Best Event in the South West and overall Winner of Winners at The South West Excellence Tourism Awards 2018.
The Festival welcomes 200 of the very finest designer makers to the idyllic setting of Mill Marsh Park on the edge of Dartmoor in Bovey Tracey. The handpicked collection of some of the country’s most exciting designer makers, are selected to sell their handmade products to a discerning audience of over 10,000 visitors.
It doesn’t stop there, you can book onto a great range of craft workshops where you can learn craft -skills, a dedicated Teen area called The Den. Watch a range of top makers demonstrating their craft and a packed Children’s Craft tent will keep budding young craftspeople enthralled all day.
You can expect a weekend brimming with live action including The Pottery Showdown competition, Out of the Woods tent which celebrates British woodland craft skills and the magnificent Craft Cinema, hosted in a vintage Bedford Bus. The unique opportunity to meet over 200 makers of contemporary craft is the highlight of the weekend which includes award winning silversmiths, potters, furniture makers, textile artists, glass makers, jewellery and demonstrations from makers such as The Boat Building Academy and Otter Surfboards.
Great live music fills the air from Devon performers topped off with a wide variety of locally sourced, delicious street food. A weekend to remember!
