The Ballymaloe Craft & Design Fair returns for its sixth year of offering work by more than 100 of Ireland’s best craft professionals in Ballymaloe Grainstore and The Big Shed in East Cork. The Fair takes place on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 November 2016 from 10am – 6pm.
FREE Admission is sponsored by The Village Greengrocer & Foodhall, Castlemartyr. Parking is also free.
A ‘Living Craft’ area is a new addition, where a selection of craft makers and producers will showcase their skills and offer tastings.
Christmas shoppers will be spoilt for choice among fine textiles, pottery, jewelry, wood and glass work, paper crafts, fine art, children’s toys and dolls, cosmetics, confectionery, knit wear, and much more.
It’s a stress-free shopping experience with a distinctive Ballymaloe twist, as browsers can pause for coffee and delicious hot food served by local ‘kitchen heroes’ in The Big Shed, or stroll the newly-christened kitchen garden that celebrates the 50th anniversary of Ballymaloe House.
Over five years The Ballymaloe Craft & Design Fair has built a national reputation as the pre-eminent crafts show south of Dublin for the winter season. Ballymaloe is located 20 miles east of Cork City.”
