Chris Philpot said:  “After the success of our debut Craft Fair, we decided to make it a regular event.  Crafting has become more popular than ever before and we are thrilled to be able to showcase the range of crafting talent and creativity that Barleylands has to offer.  The Village has established itself as a popular centre for artisan craft studios, shops and boutiques.”

Visitors can make a day of it; the Tiptree Tearooms is open for lunch, snacks and refreshments.  The Craft Fair will take place from 10am – 5pm.
