This weekend, visit CRAFT FEST - an annual celebration of Craft, Applied Art and Design at Castle Ward, Strangford, County Down, organised by the Craft and Design Collective. CRAFT Now in its tenth year Craft FEST 2013 includes exhibitions, workshops and opportunities to buy craft. It takes place from the 9th to the 11th of August.


Throughout the weekend:

  • Meet, and buy work directly from, the makers at the Craft Fair. Exoect to find some of the best craft, applied art and design in the land and a most un-high street experience at CRAFT FEST's Craft Fair. With local artists, designers and makers heading to Castle Ward on the sumptuous shores of Strangford Lough it couldn't be a more idyllic setting. Expect to be sorely tempted by gorgeous jewellery, fabulous fashion and interior accessories. The only thing the exhibitors have in common is quality and individuality.
  • Be inspired by exhibitions 'In the House'
  • Be entertained by demonstrations and maybe have a go yourself. The Craft & Design Collective presents an incredible series of demonstrations in the Stableyard at Castle Ward; and even more workshops in the Education Room. There are workshops for all ages.
