Who loves pompoms and crafting? Well, we here at The Amazing Blog love channelling our inner artistic ambitions. When we are not busy plugging away at the office, we are oftentimes caught up with our own crafty hobbies. You too can experience your own creative adventures at The Handmade Fair this weekend at Hampton Court Palace.
Featuring the one and only crafting queen Kirstie Allsopp, The Handmade Fair will be an overall celebration of all things artistic, stretching as far as knitting to upcycling. The main event at the fair is dedicated to The Handmaid Fair staff and their attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records record for the most pompoms laid together from end to end. If you want to be a part of potential pompom history, you can participate at the event or make your own string of 3 pompoms, attach your name, and drop them off at your local HobbyCraft store. So, whether you want to show what you know, learn something new, or just want to see pompom history be made, The Handmade Fair is sure to be a fun filled event.
The fair is from the 19th through the 21st of September, from 930AM to 6PM everyday. A general admission ticket can be purchased at the door for £12.50 per adult and £10 per child. Full experience tickets can be purchased online for £29 per adult and £26 per child. The full experience ticket will gain you entry to the event, a workshop, participation in the Grand Make, and the chance to hear a speaker among various crafting experts of your choice.
