Craft in Focus at RHS Garden Wisley

Jo Downs

Craft In Focus returns to RHS Garden Wisley from 22-26 November, and this year's Christmas craft and design event is bigger than ever with over 190 exhibitors! Held in floored and heated marquees within the Garden this year, the event showcases a selection of the UK’s finest professional contemporary craftmakers and artists working in wood, glass, metal, textiles, ceramics and more. The UK has a wealth of individual and talented designer makers and artists who produce wonderful original items that simply cannot be found amongst the mass-produced and imported goods on the high street. Craft In Focus has selected the best of these to show at the Christmas event.

All exhibitors at Craft In Focus events design and make the work that they display, and are selected for their individuality and innovation in contemporary design, as well as outstanding technical ability. The event is a must visit for anyone seeking something unusual and original, produced by an individual business that has a real passion for the work they create. Visitors will enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and breathtaking creativity from an exciting range that features both emerging British talent alongside more established designer/makers. This event offers a refreshing alternative to Christmas shopping on the predictable high street.

There is also a 'Food Pavilion' for a “Taste of Christmas”, with delicious food on offer including Christmas cakes and puddings, olive oils, nut products, handmade chocolate and fudge, truckle cheeses, fruit infused spirits, and a selection of English preserves and chutneys. Throughout the event, there will be live music including the classical guitar sounds of The Corcovado Project, traditional jazz band Jazz Magic, the cutting-edge, all-female string ensemble Gold Quartet, the gentle jazz sounds of Pink Champagne and the Wey Gospel Choir. Craft in Focus at RHS Garden Wisley is an event not to be missed!
