Calendar of Events 2016


Craft Carnival organise major craft and garden shows at unique and beautiful venues in and around Dorset and Hampshire.

Each of our events showcases a tempting range of the best in traditional and contemporary crafts, where you can see and meet craftspeople in action and choose from a wide variety of handmade items – or commission something special.

Crafts range from woodturning to fine jewellery, from handmade pottery to one-off fabrics, and from ironworking to traditional hurdle-making. Our exhibitors create special and highly desirable objects of utility and beauty from almost every imaginable material, using age-old skills which can take many years to master.

Most of our events also feature a huge selection of plants, garden furniture and ornaments from specialist suppliers, always ready to give practical advice if you need it. There is something for every garden lover, whether you are looking for a rare herb or fine traditional handmade outdoor furniture that will stand the test of time.

All our shows take place in and around spacious marquees with a separate refreshment tent.
