Get­ting crafty is pop­u­lar in Hyde End

Visi­tors flock to craft show where all the goods are hand made by the ex­hibitors

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

About 100 Bri­tain’s best craft work­ers demon­strated and sold their work at the 2016 Hyde

of End Easter Craft Show.

The event was sched­uled to run Good Fri­day to Easter Mon­day, but or­gan­is­ers had to can­cel the event on Easter Mon­day due to flood­ing caused by Storm Katie.

Hyde End Craft Show has been run­ning ev­ery March/April and Oc­to­ber for 15 years. Started by craft work­ers who were dis­en­chanted by other craft shows where many goods were bought in, the Hyde End Show is care­fully or­gan­ised to en­sure that the crafts on show are gen­uinely made by the ex­hibitors.

Vir­tu­ally ev­ery kind

of craft was rep­re­sented at the event, in­clud­ing knitwear, ce­ram­ics, jewellery, tex­tiles, art and sculp­ture.

Visi­tors could also take a look at the show’s pop­u­lar pre­view demon­stra­tion area where or­gan­is­ers aim to have a dif­fer­ent theme at each show, which fo­cused on wood this Easter Show.

At­ten­dees could also visit the food hall to buy hand­made food from home­made chut­neys to cheeses and sausages and the cafe for a range of light snacks and cof­fee.

For chil­dren, there was free pot-throw­ing, a make­and-take work­shop, and an Easter bunny hunt.

All the ex­hibitors at the craft show are care­fully vet­ted to en­sure the goods on their stalls are hand made
