GET crafty at Barleylands this May, when The Village celebrates National Craft and Design Month.
To kick the annual event off in style it will be hosting an Artisan Spring Fair on Sunday, May 7, offering plenty of fun for all the family.
The event, which will be free to attend with more than 50 craft studios to explore, stalls to browse, demonstrations and extra exhibitors, looks set to be an unmissable day out.
As Craft and Design Month marks an amazing month of creativity, highlights at Barleylands on the day will include ’have-a-go’ potter’s wheel sessions at Hazle’s Pottery Barn; a decorate your ballet shoes workshop at Light ’N’ Fairy; hands-on taster sessions at Crafty Mack’s Wooden Gifts; nail art sessions for children and children’s hair bradiding lessons for parents at Escape Studios; and the chance to create your own message on a heart at Dewberry Boo.
You can see the new season collection on display at Mrs Florentine, take part in the children’s trail, and enjoy fudge tasting at The Bon Bon Jar and jam tasting at Tiptree Tea Rooms.
As well as browsing farmers’ market stalls you can see a range of external exhibitors including Milliemoo Knitwear, Mersea Driftwood Designs, Billericay Brewing, Muffin Makery, Jemima and Co and The Rose and Thistle Wax Patisserie, to name but a few.
Everything from wooden carvings, handmade bears and children’s clothing, to ceramics and beautiful watercolour landscapes can be purchased on the day.
To help you enjoy the day even more we are giving away an afternoon tea for two on the day which can be enjoyed on the day at Barleylands’ Tiptree Tea Room as well as entrance to the farm park.
