What better way to mark the Coronation weekend than enjoying a day out at the fabulous festival of Living Crafts, celebrating our long heritage of British arts and crafts. There will be plenty of bunting, afternoon teas and we will be live streaming the Coronation if you want to keep an eye on events.
Otherwise, enjoy a memorable day of creative activity, learning, discovery and shopping.
We are the go-to-destination for excellence in British craft, showcasing talented designer-makers who work with contemporary and traditional crafts to create beautiful pieces for you and your home. Shop direct from the maker, have-a-go yourself, watch amazing demonstrations and learn how things are made.
Our professional exhibitors will be joining the celebrations and many have made special pieces for the Coronation so you can take home a special souvenir from your visit.
Taking pride of place in our Showcase Pavilion, will be a special exhibit on loan from the private collection of Lord & Lady Salisbury, a pair of Coronet dining chairs currently being re-upholstered by the St Albans Upholstery School, who you will find in our Masterclass Pavilion - Fir. Watch out for the story of the work on our social media channels @LivingCrafts UK.
In the Workshop Pavilion, Birch, you will be able to try the art of block printing with The Arty Crafty Place who have a special Coronation Collection of blocks to choose from. Or you can practice marbling with the Marbling4Fun team to create your own Coronation cards.
