Our fundamental criteria
Living Crafts has pioneered British craft shows since 1974, promoting the very best handmade British craft and design for genuine artists and designer-makers. Each event also has a dedicated pavilion for specialist food and drink producers.
Your work must be made by you, the exhibitor and absolutely no imported work is allowed. If your work does not conform to these fundamental requirements, it will be out of place at the show and we will be unable to take your application further.
From far and wide
Our event at Hatfield Park, for example, attracts thousands of craft enthusiasts from London and Home Counties, although, as the map highlights, the influence and popularity of this event draws visitors from all across the country. In 2019 people travelled from as far afield as Aberdeen in Scotland and we even had visitors from the USA.
50 years of experience
We ensure a balanced range of skills and products are represented across all of our events to offer visitors the best possible choice and experience. We have seen trends come and go and styles change over the years but the overriding ethos of our events has not changed. All work is vetted and we are only able to offer a place to around 1 in 10 people who express an interest in taking part.
Blenheim Palace Christmas Market
Over 200,000 people came to the Christmas Market in 2022 as part of the Blenheim at Christmas experience. The criteria for taking part in the Christmas Market is not as rigid as the Living Crafts Events and further details for trading at this event can be found at the Blenheim Palace Christmas Market Exhibitor website.
This is our favourite show. All handmade crafts and original art. We really enjoy running our workshops here. And great to meet up with friends that we only see on the show circuit.
