AboutWonderworks Contemporary Craft Fair in the beautiful Dartmoor town of Chagford gets bigger and better for Christmas 2017
Now in its 15th year, Devon's acclaimed Wonderworks Contemporary Craft Fair will be showcasing the work of 30 crafts people from the South West in the newly expanded and refurbished Jubilee Hall over the weekend of 9-10 December.
Each designer-maker has been hand-picked via a rigorous selection process for their distinctive designs, innovative methods and contemporary appeal. And at Wonderworks you're able to meet the makers and learn intriguing details about their craft first hand.
Here you'll not only find unique yet affordable Christmas presents, you'll also be shopping local and supporting artisan talent and our sponsored charity Hospiscare - www.hospiscare.co.uk Admission to the fair is free but voluntary donations to Hospiscare at the door are very welcome. Plus, you can treat yourself to warming snacks and drinks in the festive, friendly venue of Jubiliee Hall – a world away from the usual high street Christmas shopping slog.
There will be exciting craft activities for both children and adults during the weekend with hands-on clay and felting activities - take home a handmade Christmas decoration! Wonderworks' charity raffle with impressive prizes donated by each exhibitor and generous local businesses runs throughout the weekend. And if you factor in Chagford's chic shops, pubs and cafés and majestic moorland walks close by, you have all the ingredients for a great day out.
This year Wonderworks features everything from ceramics, jewellery, toys, textiles and toiletries to metal, leather and wooden products. Organisers Abigail North and Alison West are established ceramists exhibiting at craft fairs nationwide, so they're well-placed to spot new talent and trends in the contemporary crafts world. In fact you could say they've done all the legwork for you!
