Take a stunning Essex venue, an outstanding collection of exhibitors and the sparkle of the festive season, and you have the recipe for the Essex Craft & Design Show’s Christmas Gift Fairs at RHS Garden Hyde Hall.
New for 2018, there will be two three-day shows on consecutive December weekends: Friday 30th November to Sunday 2nd December and Friday 7th to Sunday 9th December.
At each of the three-day shows, there will be over 60 craftsmen, artists and designer makers including jewellery, fine art, photography, ceramics, textiles, glass, and many other contemporary crafts. With Christmas just around the corner, it's the perfect opportunity to find unique gifts for friends and family; watch artist demonstrations and meet the individuals who have created the work.
We're a UK charity established to share the best in gardening. We want to enrich everyone's life through plants, and make the UK a greener and more beautiful place.
