Morning lovelies! Are you feeling the pressure to get your craft on in the run up to your wedding? I have the perfect thing for you – Kirstie Allsopp’s three-day craft fair, the biggest in the UK by a mile, with tutorials and ideas from dozens of wonderfully talented people.
The Handmade Fair is perfect for creative brides and grooms whether you’re looking for inspiration, help or supplies. You can learn how to make perfect tissue paper garlands, paper poms, streamers and more….
There are cake decorating lessons, or you could attend a demonstration of flower arranging with sought-after wedding florist Kitten Grayson.
I’ll even bring some calligraphy pens for you to play with, and we can practice writing names in my calligraphy skills workshop every day at 2pm. After the workshops I’ll be around to answer any wedding craft questions you might have, or share calligraphy tips for your place names and invitations!
When we’re done with calligraphy you can learn how to hand sew a bow tie for your man (and if you enjoy it, for your best man, your dads and ushers too!)
And my favourite brand in the world, LUSH, will be on hand teaching us how to make fresh floral hair pieces using the flowers which go into their products in the Lush kitchen.
Last but not least, the show opens each day with papercraft artist Poppy Chancellor – she’ll be showing you how to cut paper bunting, and sharing her tips to make it look professional and beautiful.
With dozens of craft stalls and thousands of wedding craft ideas, you really can’t miss The Handmade Fair! It’s at Hampton Court Palace from the 19th – 21st of September, and you can book your tickets today at http://www.thehandmadefair.com/
See you there!
