Makers in Sherwood Forest for Easter Sunday craft fair

Makers from across the region will be at RSPB Sherwood Forest in Edwinstowe on Easter Sunday (31st March 2024) for the nature reserve’s second artisan craft fair.

Unique creations made from glass, ceramics and willow are among the diverse range of items that visitors can browse and buy.

There will be artists, willow weavers  and even goodies for pets at this year’s event, which runs from 10am-4pm at the reserve’s events green.

Jess Dumoulin, Visitor Experience Manager at RSPB Sherwood Forest, said: “Crafters and makers have frequently been a vital part of our events programme at Sherwood, and our craft workshops led by local artisans have proved really popular over the past 12 months.

“So, it’s great to have a craft fair which puts the spotlight on the crafters and makers themselves. We’re hoping for some Easter sunshine to help with that too by bringing in visitors to see and perhaps purchase something unique to take home with them.”
