  • Brantwood Annual Christmas Craft Fayre

    The Craft Fair is an annual event for Brantwood and over the years has developed a name for quality crafts. The event is an opportunity for crafts people to showcase the very best in local art and craft. Over 30 stalls will be situated throughout the house including jewellery, textiles, pottery, woodwork, original artworks, prints and cards, baskets, bowls, pots, and clocks as well as homemade Christmas puddings, cakes and preserves – to name but a few. Craft demonstrations include swill-basket making, wood turning, spinning, rag rug making, pole lathing, and new this year, raku-fired pottery.  There will be plenty of ideas for unusual and unique Christmas presents and handmade objects for the home.  Brantwood Café will be serving seasonal fayre including our traditional mulled wine to put you in a festive mood.
