Held twice a year, our Makers Fairs have a growing reputation for providing a showcase for some of the best contemporary craft available for sale or commission in the north of England and, increasingly, further afield. Audiences will have the opportunity to see unique and original handmade products, buy directly from the artists and makers, and meet the creative talent behind the work. The venue, Victoria Hall in Saltaire, is both attractive and historically unique, a great setting for a contemporary craft fair

Saturday 14 September, 11am – 5pm / Sunday 15 September, 10am – 5pm
Victoria Hall, Saltaire, West Yorkshire BD18 3JS
