Details

This superb venue provides a unique backdrop for this contemporary art and craft show. The wide range of exhibitors will include fine art, photography, ceramics, jewellery, willow art, textiles, many other contemporary crafts and a handful of stands selling locally produced food. First established in 2008 by two artists from the Leigh Art Trail, the event aims to provide a unique and valuable showcase for established artisans, new emerging talent and ‘non-commercial’ installation artists who can bring a different dimension and perspective to the beautiful garden setting; helping to bring it to life in a 21st Century way.
For the public it is the ideal opportunity to buy a piece of original art or craft and meet the artist who created the work. With artisan demonstrations during the four days, and the gardens to explore, this is very much a day out and more than just a craft show.
This particular venue is of interest in its own right. For more information and to find out what other events they are hosting please visit their website:
