The fair will feature over 45 high quality craft stalls from makers across the length and breadth of Ireland including textiles, jewellery, wood, glass, soaps, ceramics, and candles to name but a few.

There will also be a host of creative craft workshops for adults and children including wine tasting, porcelain jewellery tray making, gemstone jewellery, and for the kids, jumping clay, wacky wax hands and clay baby hedgehogs.

There will be 14 free outdoor craft demonstrations from master crafters featuring feltmaking, basket weaving, wood turning, stone carving, rope making, leather working, glass-lampworking, and many more.

Makers will be inviting you to have a go and try your hand at the various craft activities.

All this will be combined with musical entertainment, children and family entertainment, guided tours of the Palace and Demesne, inspiring Art talks by JB Vallely and Anne Callanan, Demesne walks, the superb children’s play area and much more to make this year’s fair a great day out.
