Crafts @ Kirstead, one of the region’s largest artisan craft fairs, returns to the grounds of Homestead Nurseries over the weekend of 9th and 10th September. The two-day festival showcases the talents of some of East Anglia’s finest producers and makers – all of whom will be exhibiting and selling their work.
The 2017 fair includes hallmarked silver jewellery produced by Norfolk jeweller, Fiona Johnson; wooden bird-tables and garden planters made by Maurice Morris-Newton from Framingham Earl, who has previously supplied Queen Elizabeth II with garden furniture at Sandringham and Michelle Daniels with a range of hand-thrown stoneware and raku.
Award-winning marmalade-maker, Ali Barwick from Loddon, will be selling a selection of her preserves and, this year we are delighted to welcome the Wildcraft Brewery with their intriguing range of craft ales and spirits.
Running alongside the Craft Fair on Saturday is the “Canines @ Kirstead” Dog Show (kindly sponsored by K9 Capers) together with an entertaining display of Dog Agility. Entries start from 10am, and with classes ranging from “Best Pedigree” to “The Dog the Judge Would Like to Take Home”, you are sure to find an entry to suit your four-legged friend.
Both parking and entry to the event are free and a variety of food and refreshments will be available throughout the weekend courtesy of The Bistro Express and Jay-B Bakes. This year, the charities benefiting are East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices – The Nook Appeal and The Sheffield Children’s Hospital. We’re hoping to raise more than ever this year to support these causes and we look forward to seeing you at Kirstead.
