Craft in Focus is bringing over 160 of Britain’s finest designers and craftspeople to RHS Garden Wisley over the early May bank holiday for its Spring Contemporary Craft and Design Fair (30 April – 5 May).

All items are made in Britain by talented craftspeople, nothing is mass-produced and it is possible to arrange tailor-made, bespoke articles direct from the makers. The Fair is spread out around the beautiful garden with contemporary crafts in marquees, open air displays of outdoor sculptures, garden furniture, garden art and crafts, and leading silversmiths in Wisley’s state of the art Glasshouse in the Festival of Silver, sponsored by the Goldsmith’s Company.

Normal garden entry applies.

About the RHS
The Royal Horticultural Society was founded in 1804 by Sir Joseph Banks and John Wedgwood for the encouragement and improvement of the science, art and practice of horticulture. We held our first flower shows in 1820, were granted a Royal Charter in 1861 and acquired RHS Garden Wisley, the first of our gardens, in 1903. From our first meetings in a small room off London’s Piccadilly, we have grown to become the world’s largest gardening charity.

Today the RHS is committed to providing a voice for all gardeners. We are driven by a simple love of plants and a belief that gardeners make the world a better place. 210 years on we continue to safeguard and advance the science, art and practice of horticulture, creating displays that inspire people to garden. In all aspects of our work we help gardeners develop by sharing our knowledge of plants, gardens and the environment.
