RHS Garden Hyde Hall, Creephedge Lane, Rettendon, CM3 8ET

10am to 5pm each day

The Essex Craft & Design Show will be returning to RHS Garden Hyde Hall for its tenth year for the May Day Bank Holiday weekend.

This superb venue provides a unique backdrop for this contemporary art, craft and design show.  The wide range of exhibitors will include fine art, photography, ceramics, jewellery, textiles, many other contemporary crafts and a handful of stands selling locally produced food.  First established in 2008 by two artists from the Leigh Art Trail, the event aims to provide a unique and valuable showcase for established artisans, new emerging talent and ‘non-commercial’ installation artists who can bring a different dimension and perspective to the beautiful garden setting; helping to bring it to life in a 21st Century way.

For the public it is the ideal opportunity to buy a piece of original art or craft and meet the artist who created the work.  With artisan demonstrations during the four days, and the gardens to explore, this is very much a day out and more than just a craft show.
