Event details

This year we’re delighted to welcome some new exhibitors to the fair, including illustrator and textile designer Ruth Jefferies, ceramicist Jackie Norbury, and giftware designer Helen Bartholomew. They’ll be accompanying some established favourites, including Jenna Round, Kat Christou, and Martin Rayment. 

Joining our alumni are a whole host of current art and design students presenting a selection of exclusive hand-made gifts and curio, not available on the high street.

You'll have the opportunity to buy ceramic and glass by Decorative Arts, illustrations, drawings and stationary by Fine Art and Graphic Design, and clothing, decorations, stocking fillers and other quirky items from Animation and Product Design.

Money raised by students goes towards funding their own projects and work.

You can view a selection of items from our stall holders via the fair's Facebook page.
