Living Crafts 2015 at Hatfield House

Living Crafts, a 4-day craft spectacular, which showcases the talents and designs of around 300 of Britain's best craft workers and designers concluded today. The event, a massive favourite with the local residents and visitors alike, was held at the Queen Elizabeth Oak Showground, in the splendid parkland at Hatfield House.

Featuring the best of both traditional and contemporary craft work including ceramics, jewellery making, art, sculpture, woodworking, textiles to knitting, goldsmithing and photography, the craft show undoubtedly is one of the leading craft events in the UK because of its range and excellent quality of crafts. Craft lovers not only got to browse through and purchase original work but also had the opportunity to watch live demonstrations and get creative in workshops. I spent a few hours strolling through the ground, visiting various stalls and taking in the incredible atmosphere. The ceramics and jewellery stalls interested me a lot and I was drawn to a small stall which was selling goblins - all hand crafted and beautiful. The lady at the stall was working on a goblin and it was amazing to watch her at work, shaping and colouring the pieces. All the craftsmen (at various stalls) were very knowledgeable. They were quite happy to discuss their work and many also mentioned that it was possible to commissions items directly from them.

Adding to the festival atmosphere at the craft fair were traditional Morris dancers and a brass band. There was also a 'Food and Drink' tent with a huge range of tempting food - handmade pies, chocolates, artisan cheeses, chutneys and wines to name a few.

If you are interested in high quality craft, then Living Crafts is for you. It is an amazing craft show and perfect for the entire family as a creative and fun-filled day out. I loved the range and quality of craft and will definitely be going back again next year.
