Community Craft Fair at Red House - Call for applicants

Community Craft Fair at Red House

Sat 20 & Sun 21 July, 11am – 5pm

We are looking for individual artists or groups to exhibit at our Community Craft Fair. Whether you are a part of a local knitting group or a professional artist we want to hear from you.

Red House was built in 1859 by William Morris; a man with many artistic talents. From wallpaper and embroidery, to poetry and book illustration Morris tried his hand at many different crafts. He built friendships with a group of artists who regularly came to stay at Red House.

This summer we want to celebrate the artistic endeavours of William Morris and his friends by bringing together the wide variety of arts and crafts in Bexleyheath and the surrounding areas.

The Community Craft Fair will be a chance for local artists to display and sell their work, for art groups to advertise to new members, and a chance for all to see the talents of the community.

We are also hoping some people would like to offer demonstrations, whether it's a drop-in knitting for beginners, a quick outdoor yoga session, or a cake decorating demonstration we'd love for visitors to have the opportunity to learn a new skill.

Schools. clubs and independent artists are all welcome for the event. There is no cost involved in exhibiting at the Community Craft Fair which will be advertised throughout the borough.

Although the main focus will be arts and crafts, we would love a wide variety of stalls so if you have something else that you think would work please do get in touch.
