Christmas Craft Fair at Great Dunmow 2021


Returning to Foakes Hall for an 11th year, this Fair will feature over 30 makers and artists selling the latest in contemporary and vintage inspired items. This will be the ideal place for shoppers to find those special gifts for loved ones this Christmas, with opportunities to discuss commissioned pieces with the stallholders.

This event showcases quality handmade crafts, with makers selling a range of items to suit all pockets. There will be lots of beautiful Christmas decorations to buy from makers such as Elegant Paper Artistry, Woolly & Sparkle, Mary James and Hooked on Crafts. Other stallholders include Capricorn Crafts, makers of wooden toys and gifts; Peter Deans Ceramics; Chapel Soaps and jewellery from Annie’s Beads . We are in the process of adding makers attending this event to this page…

Cathy Russell from the Guild of Essex Craftsmen will be demonstrating the art of quilling (using strips of paper to create intricate designs).

Please note that not all stallholders take card payments and so it is advisable to bring along some cash to the fairs.

There will be a tearoom at the Fair but it will not be run by our usual caterer Plum Fairy.

Covid – To ensure a safe and comfortable environment for our visitors and stallholders, we will be asking people to, if they are able and happy to do so, wear masks at our events whilst moving around the venue and to observe an element of social distancing. We are also advising visitors to our fairs to check our website/social media pages before an event as any notices relating to changes in restrictions/cancellations will be posted here.

Foakes Hall is situated just off the main High Street in the picturesque Essex market town of Great Dunmow.
