British Crafting Excellence

Perfect for craft lovers, Living Crafts is a one-stop creative and shopping experience showcasing the talents and skills of hundreds of acclaimed designer-makers. Celebrating contemporary, British craft of an exceptional standard, visitors to Living Crafts can buy unique designs or commission beautifully crafted work direct from the specially selected makers. Enjoy spectacular craft demonstrations, masterclasses and workshops and have an inspiring day out in the magnificent setting of Hatfield House.

Living Crafts and Covid 19

Based on our current understanding of Covid 19, Living Crafts is taking measures to ensure the safety of all visitors and exhibitors at the show. The size of the main tents has been increased to help with social distancing and stewards will be placed at the main tent entrances to help control the number of visitors flowing through. We are allowing extra room between the outside display and there will be plenty of opportunities for people to use hand sanitisers around the showground. Workshops will be structured so there is sensible social distancing and there will be more outside catering with plenty of space to sit down and enjoy your food. These precautions may well change in the coming months of course, but we will be working hard to ensure your visit to Living Crafts is as safe and enjoyable as possible.
