About this event

This event is an amazing six weekends celebrating some of the best artisan crafts from across the country. The Barn is filled with makers’ stalls, selling their own high-quality items directly to visitors. We are proud to have been showcasing arts and crafts, as part of Christmas at Blackthorpe Barn, for over 30 years.

Meet the Makers

Each maker is carefully selected to provide the ultimate eclectic mix of pieces to enjoy. One strict criterion when exhibiting at the Barn is that the makers themselves must be present and available for all visitors to meet them and chat about the inspiration behind their wonderful creations.

This year there are many new makers alongside some popular regulars, each with intriguing pieces for sale. The mix of makers changes each weekend, so there is always something new to see each time you visit.
