Each October, Farnham hosts a celebration of craft with hundreds of opportunities to get involved with events featuring countless makers, pieces, organisations and venues, throughout the town. This is your chance to see makers in action; take a craft walk; get making and buy work from local designer makers. Craft Month celebrations have been growing steadily each year as the town’s craft organisations and supporters work together to celebrate Craft Town England. Events and activities include showcasing new talent and local craft businesses at various venues across the town, with the opportunity to join in; networking opportunities and discussions at conferences, symposiums and workshops; and the chance to see and take part in various craft activities that are usually hidden behind workshop doors. We hope there is something for everyone and that you share the experiences you have with friends, family, colleagues and with us. These events and celebrations of crafts could not happen without the organisations and individuals that take part, putting effort into setting up and showcasing their yearly craft activities during October. We would like to thank them all. If you would like more information, to take part or to support the annual October Craft Month please contact us.
